“Another really big win for us in conference as Sheboygan Falls had only one conference loss coming into Thursday. I’m very impressed in how our girls are handling some difficult matches and the pressure of falling behind,” said Panther head coach Scott Milslagle.

“As has been the case most of the season, our doubles play was incredible and brought home the victory, sweeping all three match- es. Scarlet and Cassandra keep getting better and seem to rise to the occasion against quality opponents.”

Milslagle thought Woelfel and Prahl did a good job of closing out their match after winning a close opening set.

“It was refreshing to watch them close out a match as they have had a tendency to let teams back into matches and making matches closer than they need to be this season,” said the coach.

“Savannah and Ellie lost a set for the first time this season in conference – losing the first set 4-6. I was interested to see how they would handle falling behind in a match and they handled it like the pros they are by kicking it into high gear for the next two sets and getting us the points we needed to win the match.”

Wiese and Potrykus won the fi- nal two sets, 6-3, 6-2.

“It is meets like this one where you can see what your teams are made of. Sheboygan Falls is a very good, very deep team, and they were up on our girls in most of the matches at the beginning of the night. Our girls really fought hard to win this meet,” said Milslagle.
