The Trenton Lady Bulldog tennis team played their second straight match against an MEC opponent yesterday (Thursday) afternoon, traveling to Savannah, and falling to the Lady Savages, 8-1.
Unlike Wednesday's 9-0 defeat against MEC preseason favorite Chillicothe, Trenton did manage one head-to-head victory on Thursday, that from #3 singles player Ashley Allen, who downed Lauren Maize, 8-3. Savannah's singles wins were from #1 Jennifer Cornelius (8-2 over Alvynne Villacampa), #2 Leah Holt (8-2 over Hannah Sowder), #4 Kaity Yount (8-4 over Claire Utley), #5 Jacey Cornelius (8-1 over Hannah Robinson), and #6 Molleigh Arn (8-4 over Hannah Farmer).
Savannah swept three varsity doubles matches, although two of the matches were very close and competitive. In the #1 match, Cornelius and Cornelius beat Villacampa and Sowder 8-6. Trenton's #3 team of Robinson and Farmer took Savannah's Maize and Arn to 8-8, but lost a 7-3 tiebreaker. At #2, Holt and Yount beat Allen and Utley, 8-3.
Savannah took all three JV doubles matches against the Lady Bulldogs, with Delanie Maize and Kaitlyn Ruoff beating Samantha Mihalovich and Alainey Shipley-Fair 6-2, Kacey Logsdon and Lindsey Webb downing Cassidy Trump and Abbie Shuler 6-4, and Anna Hill and Macy McCampbell taking a 6-5 win over Codi Delong and Madison Untiedt.
Next week will be a busy one for Trenton girl's tennis, with the Lady Bulldogs at Bishop LeBlond on Tuesday, at the Chillicothe Quad on Wednesday, hosting Cameron on Thursday, and at the St. Joseph Benton on Friday (September 5th).
