Huntingdon hardly a match for Greenfield

Greenfield is still perfect.
Huntingdon was the latest victim of the Yellowjacket’s tennis team as Greenfield notched a 6-1 team win.
Greenfield is now 4-0 overall and 3-0 in district play.
The No. 2 singles match featured a big comeback by Greenfield’s Kendal Cook as she won six of the last seven games to overcome a 5-2 deficit against Huntingdon’s Ashley Ward.
Lady ’Jacket Kalee Kesterson, a sophomore, remains undefeated in singles since becoming a starter at the No 3 spot in 2011, cruising to an 8-1 win over Jasmine Colon.
Cook and Kesterson, the 2011 District 13 A-AA doubles champions, are undefeated in doubles so far in 2012, keeping their team streak alive with an 8-1 verdict over Colon and Christina Shands at the second seed.
Greenfield’s only senior, Taylor Hatcher, is holding down the No. 1 singles position for GHS. Hatcher, who played No. 2 last season, was forced into the top singles spot when top seed Emily Allen suffered a season-ending injury during basketball season.
Hatcher came up just short in an 8-5 setback to Sam Milam.
“Taylor has improved her game a lot since last season and is doing a great job for us at No. 1 against some very tough competition,” Greenfield head coach Bill McCall said.
Sophomores Lauren Rush and Ashton Pence, the four and five seeds, are off to a good start this season and both have been impressive in winning all their singles matches.
Both won by 8-3 scores, Rush downing Shands and Pence topping Jhury Gaskins.
