Westview boys fit to be ‘tied’; local girls triumph

Posted: Wednesday, April 13, 2011 12:04 am

The Westview boys’ tennis team did everything it could right on Thursday and came away with a tie.
The Chargers guys won all three of the matches they were physically involved in at Obion Central, but gave up forfeits — due to W’view only having two boys on its team — in a 3-3 tie.
Meanwhile, the Lady Chargers coasted to a triumph against OC, winning 6-1.
In other tennis action from last week, Greenfield improved to 6-0 on the campaign with a 5-2 win over Henry County on Wednesday.
The W’view tennis teams return to action today at Trenton. G’field goes to Milan this afternoon.
W’view tie, triumph
In actual action during the boys’ tie, Westview’s Tanner Spencer bested Randolph 8-2, while Charger Ethan Plunk prevailed by a similar margin over Tyler Wallace.
Plunk and Spencer also teamed for a tandem triumph by an 8-2 margin over Eric Brann and Bradley Randolph.
Central’s Brann and Mathis both had forfeit victories in singles play, while Randolph and Wallace claimed a doubles win without having to step on the court due to the Chargers’ low numbers.
On the girls’ side, Lady Charger top seed Melissa Darroch doubled Lindsay Castellaw 8-4, while No. 2 Cara Burnham bettered Marissa Howard 8-2.
The battle between the four seeds was the most competitive match of the outing as Westview’s Ashley Gross earned a hard-fought 9-8 (7-6 tiebreaker) victory over Kristen Storey.
Westview No. 5 seed Sydney Gilliam bested Taylor Moore 8-5.
Kacee Warren was the lone singles victor for the Lady Rebels. She bested W’view’s Chantia Brown 8-4.
In girls’ doubles play, Darroch and Burnham bettered Storey and Warren 8-2, while Brown and Gross combined for a tandem triumph (8-1) over Howard and Rebecca Bloodworth.
G’field girls 6-0
Top Lady Yellowjacket Emily Allen set the pace on Wednesday with an 8-3 win over Meagan Rosentreter.
No. 2 G’field girl Taylor Hatcher doubled Sarah Brewer 8-4, while fourth seed Kaylee Kesterson defeated Lady Patriot Grace Burden by a like margin.
At the No. 5 seed, Greenfield’s Callie Croom came out on top (8-6) of HC’s Rachel Meyer.
Meanwhile, Lady ’Jacket three seed Kendal Cook lost the most contested match of the meeting to Olivia Maupin (9-8, 7-2 in the tiebreaker).
In doubles action, Allen and Kesterson won 8-4 over Rosentreter and Brewer. Hatcher and Cook fell (8-2) to Burden and Meyer.
“This match was hard,” Greenfield coach Bill McCall said. “When you look at the total games won, you realize how close it was. During the top five singles matches, we won 32 games and Henry County won 26. “
“When you add in the doubles, it was only 42 games to 38 games in our favor. That is a very tight match.”
