Brutus leads Purple Tigers over TC

Taylor claims share of MIC tennis title.


Zach Walker and Matt Wylie were 6-3, 6-2 winners at No. 1 doubles, while Robbie Walling and Caleb Wisher closed out the rout with a 6-0, 6-0 victory at No. 2 doubles.

“It was a nice senior night for us with six seniors in the varsity lineup, and I thought all the guys played really well,” Eastern coach Nick Sale said. “We have a tournament at Wabash this weekend, and that’ll be it for us until the sectional. I’m proud of the seniors. It’ll be a tough group to replace, but [Thursday] night was nice for us.”


EASTERN DEF. TAYLOR 25-6, 25-7, 25-13

Eastern (13-7) stays near the top of the Mid-Indiana Conference with a 5-1 record after sweeping Taylor.

“I was really proud of the girls,” Eastern coach Missy Mavrick said. “We played clean, and we did a good job of getting our serves in. We kept our hitting errors down. It was a really good game.”

Courtney Clark led Eastern with 21 digs, 14 serve receptions and 14 service points. Quinlyn Hochstedler added 35 assists and 15 service points. Lizzy Mavrick came up with 18 digs and nine kills. Hannah Broo had 14 service points and nine digs. Hannah Williams contributed with 10 kills, followed by Gabby Castillo with nine and Kensey Duke with seven.

Hannah Mullinax led Taylor with 18 service receptions. Kim Seal had five kills. Rachel Hafley had seven service points and Valary Farmer had six.

“This was a very disappointing performance after our five-set match against Western Tuesday,” Taylor coach Denise Leicht said. “Eastern came out and took it to us and we didn’t respond at all. We are just very inconsistent right now, but it’s something we will continue to work on.

M-G DEF. TRI-CENTRAL 25-17, 25-23, 25-15

Tri-Central hung around with Class 2A, No. 4-ranked Madison-Grant only to fall in three. The loss snapped Tri-Central’s (11-9) six-match winning streak.
