Panthers fall to EWC championship contender

MANITOWOC – Manitowoc Roncalli, a perennial Eastern Wisconsin Conference girls tennis title contender, rolled past the Plymouth Panthers, 6-1, in a dual meet here Friday afternoon.

The loss dropped the Panthers’ EWC dual mark to 4-4.

The only winner for PHS was Drew Krablean who won 7-6 (10-8 tiebreaker), 6-2 over Reese Wetenkamp at No. 4 singles.

“They [Jets] are poised to win the conference this year. They are a highly skilled team,” said Panther head coach Laura Michel.


The Panthers took seventh in Saturday’s Hartford/Slinger Invitational. PHS scored eight points in the eight-team tournament. Oak Creek was the champion with 31.

Plymouth was led by a pair of fourth-place finishers – Krablean at No. 4 singles, and Kayla Prahl and Kaylee Woelfel at No. 2 doubles.

The Panthers’ other place-winners included: singles – Cassandra Nicholson, sixth at No. 1; Scarlet Simenz, sixth, No. 2; Amanda Krueger, seventh, No. 3; and doubles – Hailey Molkenthine and Danielle Wiese, fifth, at No. 1.

“This was a great showing for us. Last year I believe we lost every match,” said Michel.

“This year, we had a few flights on the winners’ side of the bracket and a decent showing on the consolation side as well. This was a great accomplishment, considering it is a competitive tournament with teams we will see again at the subsectional level.”
