PHS won, 7-0. – Review photo by Greg Ceilley PLYMOUTH – The Plymouth Panthers won every match in straight sets as they bounced Waupun, 7-0, in Eastern Wisconsin Conference girls dual tennis action Tuesday afternoon at the PHS courts.

PHS upped its EWC record to 2-3. Panther head coach Laura Michel was well-pleased with her team’s performance.

“Part of our No. 1 doubles teams was out of the match [meet] due to illness. Playing with a different lineup we were still able to step up to the challenge and win in those flights that were moved up,” said Michel.

“I was very proud of the mental toughness shown by each of our players.”

Cassandra Nicholson, who normally plays No. 1 singles for PHS, replaced Paige Stoney at No. 1 doubles and teamed with Michaela Kelly for a 6-1, 6-1 win.

Scarlet Simenz played No. 1 singles for the Panthers – moving up from No. 2 – and was a 6-3, 7-6 (8-6 tiebreaker) victor. Danielle Wiese and Mary Addy moved up one slot each in singles at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

“Our singles players who were each moved up a flight rose to the occasion. They came out ready to win from the beginning,” said Michel.

“Our No. 2 and No. 3 doubles teams were not changed and played confidently and effectively which was important in this win.

“Our doubles were especially dominant in serving and at the net, and it set the tone throughout the match and on the rest of the courts,” said Michel.
