Prep roundup, Oct. 1

Pairings are set 
for tennis sectional.

Eastern’s boys tennis team closed its regular season on a high note by beating Tipton 5-0 Monday at Greentown.

In singles play, Ryan Manfred was a 6-4, 6-1 winner at No. 1, Logan Colwell was a 6-2, 6-1 winner at No. 2 and Robbie Walling posted a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 3.

In doubles play, Zach Walker and Austin Chase were 6-4, 6-2 winners at No. 1 and Daniel Pugh and Riley Haupert were 6-0, 6-1 winners at No. 2.

“It was nice to go out there and take care of business, especially against a potential sectional opponent,” Eastern coach Nick Sale said. “I thought all the way through the lineup, we played well. It kind of gives out guys a little bit of a boost going into practice [today] and getting ready for sectional this week. I think we’re ready to get things rolling.”

Eastern will take a 9-11 record into this week’s Kokomo Sectional.

The sectional draw was held later Monday. The opening round is Wednesday with Eastern vs. Western in one match and Mid-Indiana Conference co-champion Taylor vs. Tipton in the other. The semifinal matches on Thursday show Kokomo vs. the Eastern-Western winner and Northwestern vs. the Taylor-Tipton winner. The championship is Friday. All matches carry 4 p.m. starts.


Eastern 5, Western 0

The Comets used a balanced attack to roll by the Panthers 5-0 at Russiaville. Elena White scored two goals and dished an assist and Mikaela Malott, Savannah Rees and Arienna Ewing scored a goal apiece.

“I have to give Western a little bit [of credit], they came out strong,” Eastern coach Chris Rees said. “They put somebody on Savannah the whole game, but because of that we were able to distribute the ball. We had four different girls score our five goals so I was very pleased with that.

“Elena White had a very good game. She was able to penetrate their defense and she had some nice crosses. Mikaela Malott had a good game — she scored on a long kick from outside. And [’keeper] Brooke Stout had a good night with seven saves. She came out and was able to get their attack stopped a lot.”
