Richmond, Downey star in NW baseball win

Eastern’s girls tennis team beat Northfield 4-1 Monday at Greentown for its second straight win following a season-opening loss to Peru last week.

“I’m really impressed by the way we’ve bounced back,” Eastern coach Pat Rice said.

The Comets swept the singles matches against the Norse. Courtney Clark was a 6-3, 6-3 winner at No. 1, Riley Kanable rallied for a 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 win at No. 2 and Claire Holkenbrink was a 6-2, 6-1 winner at No. 3.

“I’m really proud of Riley Kanable,” Rice said. “She played about a 21/2 hour match and just kept fighting. We already had won the match but she wanted to win.”

Holkenbrink played at No. 1 doubles in the Comets’ opener last week, but Rice quickly moved her back to No. 3 singles where she played the previous two seasons.

“She is such a strong singles point for us,” he said. “She has proven that to be a pretty good move. She played a great match.”

The Comets’ fourth point came at No. 2 doubles where Laura White and Marissa Evenson took a 6-1, 7-5 win.

“They’re becoming a reliable point,” Rice said. “They actually were down 5-2 in that second set and came back and won five straight points to close it out. They’re playing really well right now. We like where they’re at with their games. They’re both being aggressive.”

Taylor 3, Carroll 2

The Titans used a singles sweep to even their record at 1-1.

Jessica Fox was a 6-4, 7-6 (7-3) winner at No. 1. Lauren Shively was a 6-0, 7-6 (7-3) at No. 2. And Heather Street cruised to a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 3.

“This was a good match for us,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said. “One singles was a close match. Both sets could have gone either way. That match probably took about 21/2 hours. The 2 singles match, Lauren played really well in the tiebreaker. I’m sure that was her first tiebreaker ever. That was a nice win for her. Then Heather played really strong at 3 singles.”
