Panthers top Dogs in tennis

Western’s boys tennis team posted a 3-2 victory over Frankfort on Monday on the Hot Dogs’ courts.

The Panthers (5-5) picked up a pair of points in singles play. Judson Quinn continued his outstanding season with a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 1 and Brody Worl was a 7-5, 7-6 (8-6) winner at No. 2. The Panthers’ other point came at No. 2 doubles where Luke Florek and Kaleb Howard were 6-1, 6-3 winners.

Quinn improved to 10-0 with his win at No. 1 singles.

“Judson lost to this kid last year so he avenged the loss. He played probably his best match of the season and won pretty easily,” Western coach Andrew Miller said. “He has 10 wins already this season and he had only nine all of last year. He is really playing well.”

Florek and Howard also are playing well. They have an 8-1 record at No. 2 doubles.

“They have lost just once all year and that was Saturday [in the McCutcheon Invitational]. I’m glad they got back on the horse, so to speak,” Miller said.

Miller noted Worl played well in his win at No. 2 singles, rallying from a 5-2 hole in the second set to win in straight sets.


Noblesville 158, NW 175, Western 198

No. 7-ranked Noblesville lived up to its lofty ranking in the three-team match on its home course, Fox Prairie. Medalist Haley Kluth (3-under 33) led the Millers’ strong showing.

“[The Millers] had two girls who shot under par — one 33 and one 35. That’s great playing,” Northwestern coach Randy Lindgren said.

The Tigers’ low four scores came from Alexis Hungate (42), Ashton Martin (43), Olivia McClure (43) and Ava McClure (47).

“I was happy with our score for playing Fox Prairie, on very hard, fast greens,” said Lindgren, whose squad is 12-1.

Natalie Newlin fired a 40 for Western. Minka Gill (47), Sophie Frazier (55) and Anna Austin (56) followed for the Panthers.

Eastern 201, Taylor 212

Medalist Sarah Sharp fired a 48 to lead Eastern to the win. Mariah Williams (49), Savannah Palumbo (50) and Heidi Cranor (54) rounded out the Comets’ team score.

Taylor’s four scores came from Ashley Fritsch (51), Daysi Jarvis (53), Bree Wright (54) and Lexi Davis (54).
