Two Marathon Matches: 1 win, 1 loss

May 14, 2014
By Brent Byler of Fremont High School



The Fremont girls tennis team won one and lost one over the past three nights, but both were absolute MARATHON MATCHES.  On Monday night in Emma, the Eagles fell 3-2 to the host Westview Warriors...winning only 1 of their three, 3-set matches.  Jordan Lovett at #3 singles picked up huge 6-0 third set, matching wins with #1 singles player Anna Thompson for the Eagles.  At #1 dubs, the senior duo of Ashton Taner and Itzel Sanchez pushed an undefeated (in the NECC) Warrior team into a 3rd set, but fell short.  In the true marathon match of the night lasting over 2 1/2 hours, Kaileigh Folland also fell short in a hard-fought third set 6-4.

Due to rain, the match against Lakeland was moved from Tuesday to Wednesday and then from Lakeland to Trine University's ARC.  With only four courts in the ARC, coaches decided to put on the #2 singles match after one varsity match had finished.  The first off?  #1 doubles drowned the Lakers in a 6-0, 6-4 match and so, Kaileigh Folland could take the court.  As Kaileigh took a 3-0 lead in the 1st set, team pressure was releaved as #3 sinlges Jordan Lovett and #2 doubles, Riley McCrea and Kierra Flanagin won their matches to give the Eagles their 5th NECC victory of the year.  Anna Thompson then fell in a well-played match to a tough Lakeland senior Carlee Richardson 6-3, 6-1.  With the match decided and 4 matches complete, the #2 singles match would turn into another 2+ hour marathon.  Kaileigh got up 4-1 in the first, just to watch that lead disappear into a 6-4 1st set loss.  Kaileigh would battle back though and fight off multiple match points for Lakeland to win the second set in a tiebreaker 7-2.  The 3rd set was much the same as Kaileigh and Lakeland's Audrey Stephens  fought back and forth, tooth and nail with Stephens prevailing 6-4.

The Eagle varsity finishes the regular season with a 9-5 record overall and in 4th place in the NECC with a 5-3 record.

The varsity tennis team travels to Lakeland on Thursday and Saturday to battle for ALL NECC honors and an NECC CONFERENCE TITLE.  GOOD LUCK LADY EAGLES!!!
