LINCOLN – A postponement didn’t slow the York tennis team Tuesday afternoon against host Lincoln Christian.
The dual, delayed by recent uncooperative weather, went to York in a landslide. The Dukes of Coach Josh Miller went 8-1 in varsity matches and 15-1 on the JV side.
Miller said, “Liz (Harlow) and Emily (Meisinger) played strong, consistent tennis in their doubles and singles matches.”
Harlow won 8-1 at first singles with Meisinger taking the victory, 8-zip, at second singles.
Delaney Woods, playing at No., 2 singles, was declared the winner when the match was stopped because of injury to her opponent.
Hayley Nienhueser and Morgan Meyer won 8-2 and 8-0, respectively, at fifth and sixth singles.
Woods and Morgan Meyer lost 8-5 to Christian at first doubles. From there down it was all wins from Nienhueser and Taylor Peterson winning 8-5 at second doubles to Harlow and Meisinger’s 8-1 victory at No. 3 to the fourth doubles tandem of Clare Leif and Adrienne Gocke winning 6-2 for the Dukes.
All those JV matches were good for the Dukes, too.
“It was great to get the JV girls out on the tennis courts for an actual match after practicing for over a month without playing,” said Miller. “We were happy with the results, but we need to shore up a couple of things before the York Invite” scheduled for a 10 a.m. start today.
Taking the court for the Duke JVs were: Mary Heng, Olivia Stafursky, Kaley Sandall, Kirsten Wagner, Elexis Rice, Kathryn Heng, Catie Bergen, Savanah Mason, Hayley Peterson, Alyssa Arndt, Bekah Turnbull, Keely Wagner, Caitlin Sila, Megan Schall, Catie Bergen, Taylor Hanson, Felicia Walker, Emily Geiger and Hailey Johnson.
