KINGSFORD - Codi Jenshak got the best of her Kingsford counterpart Sam Fleming at No. 1 singles, for the third time this season, but the Flivvers were able to split doubles and remain undefeated this season with a 5-3 victory over Escanaba Thursday.
"I really like playing in Kingsford because they have eight beautiful new courts and all of the matches are at one site," said Escanaba coach Dennis Lueneburg. "I'm able to see all the girls in action at once."
Jenshak had her most competitive match with Fleming yet, but triumphed 7-5, 3-6, 6-3. Jenshak's lone defeat this season came at West Iron County to Kylee Erickson.
