Lady Vike netgirls on short end of 2-3 score

Another three-set loss made the difference as the Huntington North High School girls' tennis team fell to visiting Columbia City, 2-3, on Wednesday, April 23.

Kylie Frederick at first singles and the No. 2 doubles team of Sarah Fryman and Alisha Leffler secured wins for HNHS, but a third and deciding triumph was not to be as the first doubles team of Ana Eckert and Emily Karst lost a tough three-setter and the other two singles matches were lost in straight sets.

HNHS is 1-2 on the season.

Eckert and Karst fell to Cassie Bosseman and Bayley Smith, 6-3, 2-6, 2-6, in the Lady Vikes' best shot at a third triumph.

Frederick, a junior, whipped past Rachel Flauding, 6-0, 6-1, and the Fryman-Leffler duo had little trouble with Maddie Minnich and Mackenzie Lane in a 6-1, 6-0 win.

Jessica Onate at second singles was a 3-6, 2-6 loser to Aubrey Wright, and Emily Eherenman at third singles fell to Sydney Ford, 2-6, 4-6.

The Lady Vikes won all seven junior varsity matches played.

In singles, Katie Hunt beat Kathryn Newsom, 8-2; Alyssa Hewson was an 8-4 winner over Laura Peterson and Michaela Cook topped Bailee Glass, 8-2.

In doubles, Haley Hart and Maddie Phillips beat Hannah Clark and Katie Weigel, 8-7; Kristen Dyson and Addison Clark beat Leah Mills and Maura Garza, 8-3; Anna Doctor and Olivia Bowman topped Bailee Glass and Madison Muchow, 8-4; and Leah Kitchen and Olivia Henderson took down Kayla Sinner and Ploy Kieatmontri, 8-3.
