Braves, Flivs get tennis draw

KINGSFORD — Kingsord pulled out three three-set matches and battled Gladstone to a 4-4 draw in girls tennis Wednesday.

The Flivvers’ three and four singles, Lizzy Cross and Jessica Tomasoski, each won in three sets as did No. 3 doubles Val Richtig-Rylee Papp.

Kingsford No. 2 doubles Annie McCole-Teagan Petschar triumphed in two sets.

“We had some great matchups at three and four singles,” said Kingsford coach Sarah Massie. “Our two doubles team continues to be successful and strong at the net. Our three doubles team has really been focusing on improving their movement and chemistry on the court. Their third set today was the best I’ve seen them play all year, so I was excited for them.”

Richtig-Papp downed the Braves’ Emma Delaire-Jacinda Lippens 6-0 in the third set after losing the second set on a tiebreaker.

Gladstone won both No. 1 matches. Andie Balenger of Gladstone claimed No. 1 singles, topping Stephanie List 6-2, 6-2, and Taylor Trudeau-Sydney Herioux beat Grace Lorenzoni-Mackenzie Schwamlien 6-2, 7-5.
