Gladstone jayvee netters top Esky in scrimmage

GLADSTONE — The Gladstone jayvee girls tennis team upended Escanaba 6-0 in girls tennis here Wednesday.

Dan Williams, Gladstone’s JV coach, said “both teams played some great matches and it was a lot of fun to watch.”

The meet was just scheduled recently to give the two jayvee teams an opportunity to have an event, with the Eskymos agreeing to visit.

“I was so proud of the girls today, they played great and really are showing improvement from the beginning of the season. We had some really close matches today and both teams really worked hard on the court.”

Gladstone’s number one doubles of Alicia Marenger and Alexis Marenger won their first set, lost the second set in a tiebreaker, and then played a 10-point tiebreaker for the third set, winning 10-8.

Another match that came down to a tiebreaker was number one singles. Sarah Eilola went to a tiebreaker in the second set, winning 7-1.

The third match that went down to the wire was our number two doubles of Lahna Caster and Sophia Rosa, who rallied to win the 10-point tiebreaker third seet 10-8.

“A ton of credit to Esky’s players, they battled the whole day and played some great tennis and it was great to have both teams out playing some very competitive matches,” Williams said.
