Taylor softball squad picks up 5th straight win

Western’s girls tennis team topped Maconaquah 3-2 in a Mid-Indiana Conference match Monday at Bunker Hill.

The deciding point came at No. 1 doubles where the Panther duo of Molly Shoffner and Cora Johnson rallied for a 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 win.

Also for the Panthers (3-7, 1-4 MIC), Allie Ault was a 6-1, 6-4 winner at No. 2 singles and Macey Bickford and Tara Hellriegel were 6-4, 6-2 winners at No. 2 doubles.

“I thought [the Panthers] did extremely well,” Western coach Amy Messer said. “They were all playing very well, especially the doubles. It came down to the first doubles for the deciding point. That was a three-set match and was very exciting. Them winning the second set gave me a lot of confidence for them to win the third set.”

Brandi Jones put the Braves on the board with a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 3 singles. The Braves’ other point came at No. 1 singles where Lexi Miller topped Western freshman Brooke Jansen 1-6, 6-0, 7-5.

“Their No. 1 singles player is a senior and she did a good job,” Messer said. “It was a very even match.”

Eastern 3, Cass 2

Claire Holkenbrink took a 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 win at No. 3 singles to lift Eastern past Cass in a matchup of traditionally strong squads.

“This was a huge, huge win [for the team] and a big confidence booster going forward,” Eastern coach Pat Rice said. “I can’t say enough about Claire at 3 singles. She was actually down 5-1 in the third set and won six straight games to win that match. She showed great mental toughness out there.”

Also for Eastern (9-3, 3-1 MIC), Courtney Clark was a 6-3, 6-1 winner at No. 1 singles and Laura White and Marissa Evenson posted a 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win at No. 2 doubles.

“Our 2 doubles really stepped up after dropping that first set and just played a completely different match the rest of the way,” Rice said.

Cass picked up a point at No. 2 singles where Ivette Prado was a 6-2, 6-1 winner, and another point at No. 1 doubles where Kirsten Carbaugh and Khyla Wilson were 6-1, 6-1 winners.

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
