Falcons split EWC girls tennis matches

by Steve Ottman Falls News Correspondent

The Sheboygan Falls High School girls tennis squad improved to 3-1 in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference (4-1 overall) with a 4-3 victory over Ripon on Thursday, Sept. 3.Against Ripon, the Falcons changed their lineup due to a missing player.

No. 1 singles player Mia Bartel and No. 2 singles player Ellie Roe each won in two sets.

The No. 2 doubles tandem of Allison Lee and Carissa Dekanich won 2-1 and the No. 3 doubles tandem of Amy Brading and Hailey Kvindlog won in two sets.

“Ripon lost to Kohler 6-1earlier this season, so we knew it would be a tight match,” said Falcons coach Leigh Cherveny. “We finished with solid matches at 1 and 2 singles. I didn’t anticipate we would win the match with new line-ups at 2 and 3 doubles.”

Brading and Kvindlog played together for the first time and won convincingly.

Allison Lee, who normally plays singles, partnered with Dekanich and following a slow start secured the fourth match win.

“They did a nice job with serve placement, court movement and volleys,” remarked Cherveny. “Kim Dean did a nice job in her first start at 4 singles, almost stretching the match to a third set with a tie-break loss.”

The Falcons first loss of the season came against Kohler 6-1 on Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Roe picked up the only win in two sets.

“Roe played a solid match in her win,” Cherveny said. “One of Ellie’s assets is her focus on the present and she doesn’t dwell on a lost point, but moves on to the next one. In addition, she has a solid base of tennis skills that will keep her in all matches.”

The No.3 and 4 singles matches went to three sets.
