Arabian netters blank Cougars

PENDLETON — It had a familiar ring to it.

In 15 previous tennis matches, Pendleton Heights had won all but one and many of them have felt like the one Tuesday against Greenfield.

The Arabians won all three singles matches before the soles of the players' shoes had a chance to get warm. Only a few minutes later No. 2 doubles followed suit and then No. 1 doubles.

At the end of the match, the Arabians had a 5-0 lead and a 15-1 record on the season.

"Greenfield was playing short-handed," said PH coach Royce Hammel. "But when you are playing someone who might not be playing up to your level, you've got to work on some things. If you don't like to go to the next, then work your way up there."

In singles, the PH trio had plenty of opportunity to work on their games.

At No. 1 singles, Emma McCardwell stopped Alli Frazier 6-0, 6-0. "I still try to go for the shots I need to hit," said McCardwell. "Because when I play some other opponents, I will need to use those shots. I've gotten better at keeping my focus in those matches."

At No. 3 singles, freshman Sam Hammel put away Kendall Barr 6-1, 6-0.

So what does Hammel do in that type of match? "Sometimes I don't move my feet the way I should," she said. "So I work on moving my feet."

Carly Wilson shut out Polly Baggott 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 singles.

The No. 2 doubles team of Haley Augsberger and Brandy Stoker came out on top against Sara Hudson and Emma Vonell 6-2, 6-0.

As the skies began to darken and the rain became more of a threat to halt the match, only No. 1 doubles was in danger of not finishing. But the PH team of Audrey and Kayleigh Corn won the final two games of the match for a 6-3, 7-5 victory against Kylie Smith and Rachel Barish.

"I need the (No. 1) double team to take control of matches," said Hammel. "I need them to go for more winners and not just lob the ball back. Tonight they were playing a team that played their game and that's tough."

Pendleton Heights will be off today before taking a trip to Elwood for a Thursday match.
