Northwestern's girls tennis team got a sweep from its doubles tandems and a point from the No. 1 singles player to edge Northfield 3-2 Friday on the Northwestern courts, improving to 2-1 on the season.
Emily Harshman won 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 singles, Megan Floyd and Madison Wells won 6-4, 6-3 at No. 1 doubles, and Erica Plutat and Gabby Matly won 6-2, 6-3 at No. 2 doubles.
"Emily Harshman did a nice job and made some good adjustments throughout her match," NW coach Kathie Layden said. "Both doubles teams played great. Wells and Floyd are now 3-0 at No. 1 doubles and really playing well."
EASTERN 2, OAK HILL 0
Ally Oyler blasted a two-run tater in the bottom of the first inning to give twin sister Abby all the run support she'd need as the Comets evened their record at 3-3.
Ally Oyler, who later added a single, hit the two-run shot to plate Lizzy Mavrick, who had reached on a walk earlier in the first. Abby Oyler kept the Golden Eagles pinned down all game, notching 11 strikeouts with three hits and three walks in a complete game.
Abby Oyler also had three singles, and Ashlynn Hochstedler added two singles.
"The weather was fantastic, that was the most important thing, to see the sun shine," Eastern coach Jerry Haines said. "Two good teams, a well-played game and we got the one big hit there in the first inning with that home run. Without that, it would have been a nail-biter the whole way.
"Abby was strong enough with 11 strikeouts to keep them off the scoreboard, that was enough to get the win. I guess it was a good Oyler night, both on the mound and at the plate."
