They would get close, then fade back up a little higher,” Eastern coach Mike Hamilton said. “It was pretty exciting to watch them play [Tuesday]. They were really focused. I couldn’t be any more proud of this group of kids.”

Williams is the Comets’ lone senior.

“She has played good golf for us lately,” Hamilton said.

Next up for the Comets is Friday’s sectional at Chippendale G.C.

BOYS TENNIS

KOKOMO 3, LAFayette JEFF 2

The team match came down to the outcome of the No. 2 doubles match, where Kokomo’s Joey Hurlocker and Blake Brookshire won 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-4 to seal the victory for the road Kats (5-8).

Earlier, Kokomo No. 1 singles player Craig Simon won 6-1, 6-3 and No. 2 player Bryce York won 6-4, 6-4.

“It was an exciting night,” Kokomo coach Shawn Flanary said. “Craig Simon kind of took care of business and was quick, and Bryce had a really tight one there. In fact his opponent, in both sets, came back from 5-2 down to make things tight and Bryce was able to hold his composure and close that out. The [Jeff] kid fought off several match points.

“It ended up being 2-2 and came down to 2 doubles. We won the first set in a tiebreaker,” Flanary said. He noted that when Jeff won the second set 6-2 “you thought it might favor the other team. Our guys really settled down and adjusted and used their heads and had some great strategical changes in the third set to close it out.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
