Doubles team boosts Ursuline against Sycamore
The Cincinnati Enquirer
The Ursuline tennis team, ranked No.3 in the Enquirer's preseason poll, upset No.2 Sycamore 3-2 Wednesday at Sycamore.
Andye Kelley and Kelly Polites won in singles, and the doubles team of Christine Reeve and Jenna Davis rallied for a victory at No.2 doubles.
Christine and Jenna lost in the first match to Indian Hill early in the season, Ursuline coach Karen Kelley said. They've worked hard since then and have improved. Their victory was the difference.
Ursuline and No.1 Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy meet at 9a.m. Saturday at the Kenwood Swim and Tennis Club.
Junior Tara McKenzie scored two goals and goalie Emily Barnes recorded a third consecutive shutout as St. Ursula defeated McNicholas 4-0 at McNicholas.
We're off to a good start, and the thing that surprises me the most is our depth, St. Ursula coach Steve Dorr said. All 17 girls play, and we've had nine different players score in three games.
McAuley 1, Roger Bacon 0 Tabbitha Fixmer scored off a centering pass from Margie Pfiester with 10 minutes remaining, enabling the No.4 Mohawks to avoid the upset.
Madeira 3, Wyoming 3 Madeira's Rachel Longsworth centered the ball to Sofia Sotelo, who tied the game with 4:35 remaining.
Chris Lee, who was credited with an assist, shot the ball, but it was deflected by the Kings goalie. Gunnarson then went to the ball and put it in.
