Prep Roundup: NW golf moves to 8-0

Eastern girls soccer opens MIC play with 11-0 win over Peru.

(Continued)

“Truman bounced back from a rough night Wednesday,” Cass coach Brian Thomas said. “He played solid tennis. Berlet is now 2-0 at the No. 3 singles with another solid performance. Lowe moving down to team up with Prado at No. 1 doubles picked up their second win in as many nights. Going into the season, the guys were worried that we only had nine boys on the team, which is a drop from 20 from last year. They were wondering if the could match the record from last year, and I think we can. We have smaller numbers, but we have boys that can strike the ball.”

No. 1 singles player Judson Quinn scored a 6-0, 6-0 win for Western (1-2). The No. 2 doubles tandem of Luke Florek and Kaleb Howard added a 6-0, 6-0 victory for the Panthers.

“The difference I thought was overall consistency,” Western coach Andrew Miller said. “They got off to a quick start and we dug ourselves early holes in the first set. We fought back, but gave ourselves too big of a hole, and they were more consistent in those spots.”

PERU 4, TAYLOR 1

Taylor fell to 1-1 on the year in its MIC opener at Taylor

Jack Lipchik was a 6-1, 6-3 winner at No. 1 singles for the Titans.

“Jack played really well,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said. “He’s really hitting the ball well, and played a good match. We lost a three-set match at No. 3 singles, and had a couple 6-4, 6-3 losses in sets. They were just a little better than we were [Thursday] night.”

GIRLS SOCCER

EASTERN 11, PERU 0

Elena White and Sam Ward both added two goals to the victory cause. Marissa Evenson and Mikaela Malott both added a goal and two assists, while Rebecca Mundell added a goal and an assist.
