Dwenger clips Lady Viking netgirls in regional opener

The Huntington North High School girls' tennis team squeaked out one three-set win but couldn't get a second one and fell to Bishop Dwenger, 2-3, on Tuesday, May 21, in first round action at the Homestead Regional Tennis Tournament.

The Lady Vikings, 9-8, got wins from its top two singles players, Kylie Frederick and Kari Bard, but the closest they came after that was a three-set loss by the No. 2 doubles team of Ana Eckert and Emily Karst. The duo made up a 2-6 first set loss with a 6-4 win in the second set, but the Dwenger duo of Alex Yoder and Kristen Breamon was too strong in the third and the HN duo lost 1-6.

Fredrick at first singles was a 6-3, 6-2 winner over Khaki Lee, and Bard used all three sets to defeat Leah Stetzel in a knock-down drag-out battle, 7-5, 5-7, 6-4.

Emily Eherenman at third singles lost to Lynelle Lee, 2-6, 4-6, and the No. 1 doubles team of Mariah Zumbrun and Ashley Bard was overwhelmed by Audrey Rang and Elizabeth Maxson, 0-6, 0-6.
