Kastelic placed second in Saturday’s West Bend Invitational. — Review photo by Greg Ceilley Shyenne Genette earned first place at No. 4 singles to lead the Plymouth Panthers to a runner-up finish in Saturday’s West Bend Invitational girls tennis tournament.

Gennette, a senior, chalked up a 3-0 record in the five-team dual tourney. She defeated West Bend East’s Emily Fahrenkey 6-4, 5-7, 12-10 (tiebreaker); Kewaskum’s Courtney Herriges, 6-0, 6-1; and West Bend West’s Emily Breckenridge, 7-5, 6-3.

The Panthers (10-8 overall in duals) were 2-1 on the day, owning 6-1 victories over Kewaskum and West Bend West. Plymouth’s loss was against West Bend East, 6-1. East won the tourney with a 3-0 mark.

“Shyenne Genette took a step up in this tournament. She had her best day all year and I look for her to continue this level of play for the duration of the season,” said Panther head coach Jason Jaeckels.

“Hannah Anhalt and Becca Franzen had a bit of an up-anddown day but were able to pull out wins when we needed them. I was happy with their performances in their tiebreakers.”

Anhalt and Franzen, both seniors, placed second at No. 3 doubles with a 2-1 mark. The duo won tiebreakers to notch their two victories – 10-7 over Kewaskum’s Julie Vollmar and Hannah Preder, and 10-5 against West’s Paige Neuy and Liz Hadler.

In the West match, Anhalt and Franzen bounced back strong after losing 0-6 in the first set to win the second, 6-0, and force a tiebreaker.

The Panthers other three singles players finished second – Elizabeth Raeder at No. 1, Chloe Kastelic, No. 2 and Elizabeth Bolland at No. 3 – all with 2-1 records.

“Elizabeth Raeder played really well today. She was able to regain a little confidence in her forehand and used it to win a lot of points today,” Jaeckels said.

Plymouth’s No. 1 doubles team of Beth Brisson and Elle Klecka captured second with a 2-1 record. The Panthers’ other doubles team of Sierra McNeil and Paige Stoney didn’t place at the No. 2 position (finishing 0-3).

PHS-KEWAUNEE DUAL

The Panthers were on their way to a lopsided girls dual tennis win over visiting Kewaunee Thursday afternoon when rain halted play.

PHS won three matches in straight sets and were leading in the other four when the rain came. The meet will not be completed. Because Kewaunee was unable to field a full team at the start of the season, any meets against the Storm will not count in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference standings this season.

The only singles match completed was at No. 1 where Raeder defeated Kim Wiley 6-0, 6-1.

The Panthers’ two doubles winners were Brisson and Klecka at No. 1 with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Sophia

Hower and Sam Ferron; and McNeil and Stoney at No. 2 with a 6-2, 6-3 victory against Megan VanHaren and Ashley Loscher.

In junior varsity play, Plymouth’s Rachel Shultis and Katie Trakel teamed up for a 6-0, 6-0 in doubles.
