The Trenton girl's tennis team continues to play superbly early in its 2012 season, rolling through the first full week of September in dominating fashion.

On Tuesday, September 4th, the Lady Bulldogs beat Bishop LeBlond nine matches to zero, while the JV won 8-0.

Individual results were:
#1 singles: Jaci Tracy d. Kristin Gronninger 8-love
#2 singles: Jessica Tracy d. Taylor Faucett 8-1
#3 singles: Maria Stevenson d. Madison Looney 8-2
#4 singles: Megan Derry d. Molly Fitzpatrick 8-1
#5 singles: Megan Sole d. Savannah Sangi 8-2
#6 singles: Magie Steinhoff d. Jane Gray 8-love

#1 doubles: Tracy/Tracy d. Gronninger/Faucett 8-1
#2 doubles: Stevenson/Derry d. Looney/Fitzpatrick 8-5
#3 doubles: Sole/Steinhoff d. Sanai/Grace Aberer 8-1

For the Trenton JV, winning singles matches were Alexis Fender (6-1), Alvynne Villacampa (6-3), Leah Husong (6-2), Siara Bailey (7-5), Hannah Brinser (6-2), and Hannah Robinson (6-1). The teams of Fender/Villacampa and Brinser/Dugan won doubles matches, by scores of 6-3 and 6-1 respectively.

Other team scores from Tuesday, September 4th were:
Chillicothe 9, St. Joseph Lafayette 0
St. Joseph Benton 6, Cameron 3

On Wednesday, September 5th, the THS Lady Bulldogs won the Chillicothe Quad, which only featured three schools this year (Trenton, Chillicothe, and Carrollton). The JV joined the varsity in winning the team competition.

Trenton's doubles team of Jaci and Jessica Tracy won first place in varsity doubles, defeating their teammates, Maria Stevenson and Megan Derry in the title match, 10-4. Megan Sole and Magie Steinhoff won third place in doubles over Reeter and Long of Chillicothe, 10-3.

Alexis Fender was third place in varsity singles, falling to Ali Stephens of Chillicothe 10-1 in the semifinals, but rebounding for a 10-7 third place win over Ashley Blakely of Chillicothe. Trenton's Alvynne Villacampa was fifth place in varsity singles, finishing the day with a 2-1 record.

Leah Husong finished 2-0 to go first place in JV singles, beating teammate Siara Bailey in the final, 10-4. The Trenton JV doubles team of Hannah Brinser and Tristan Dugan won second place, falling in the title match 10-3 to Rosenback and Cypert of Chillicothe.

Trenton continued on its tear with a 9-0 varsity whitewashing of Cameron on Thursday afternoon (with the JV winning both doubles matches they played).

On Friday, weather short-circuited Trenton's hopes of winning the Benton Tournament, but not before the Lady Bulldogs advanced to the championship round against Platte County.

In the first round, Trenton shutout LeBlond 5-0, with Fender and Villacampa picking up singles victories, while Tracy/Tracy, Stevenson/Derry, and Sole/Steinhoff dominated in doubles.

Trenton had a much more difficult time with Chillicothe, as the Lady Hornets singles players (Sydnie Whiteside and Jozie Reeter) swept Trenton's Fender and Villacampa in singles play, by score of 10-love and 10-7.

However, Trenton's doubles teams stormed back, leading the Lady Bulldogs to a 3-2 victory over the Lady Hornets.

Tracy/Tracy beat Stephens/Long 10-5, Stevenson/Derry downed Westphal/Gramenz 10-2, and Sole/Steinhoff clinched the win with a 10-3 win over Blakely/Rosenbach.

The action in the championship match against Platte County had to stop due to Friday afternoon's rainstorms that moved into the St. Joseph area. At the time, Platte County was ahead 1-0, and therefore won first place, leaving Trenton with the second place plaque. Chillicothe placed third.

Individually for Trenton, Alexis Fender was fourth in singles play, the team of Jaci Tracy and Jessica Tracy was second in #1 doubles, the team of Maria Stevenson and Megan Derry won the #2 doubles competition, while the #3 doubles team of Megan Sole and Magie Steinhoff finished in second place.

Coach Abby Gott said while the rain was "disappointing" the girls played great tennis. In the only match completed against Platte County, Trenton's Villacampa was beaten by Platte County's Laures 10-2.
