The Panthers finished EWC dual play at 5-5. The PHS seniors were honored at the meet.

PHS won four of the six matches contested in straight sets. The Tigers had to forfeit the No. 3 doubles match because they didn’t have enough players.

“This match [dual] was our last home meet and our last conference match of the year. It was great to celebrate our seniors with a dominant win,” said Panther head coach Laura Michel.

“Although the team won with ease, there were two three-set matches – at No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles as well as a tiebreaker first-set win at No. 1 singles which made things pretty interesting for our last meet of the season. We lost focus a little bit but regained it heading into those third sets which we were able to win quite easily, once we got back into our rhythm.”

In EWC dual play Sept. 28, the Panthers lost to a strong Kohler squad, 7-0, at Kohler. The Blue Bombers won every match in straight sets.

“Kohler has a very strong team. Their No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles teams are particularly strong but the rest of the lineup is deep as well,” said Michel.

The PHS junior varsity won five of the seven matches versus Kohler.

“We attacked the net much better and our serving was very good again. I’ve seen a lot of improvement during the season,” said Panther JV coach Mike Gumm.
