Roundup: Girls tennis team’s win streak continues

Battling down to the wire with Valley, the Lady Eagles pulled ahead late to defeat the Vikings 10-9.

“The match against Valley was a tough match,” head coach Jami Pappas said. “We were not on our best game that day because we had several girls who played that were not feeling well but all in all we did what we needed to do to win.”

Juniors Tegan Pappas and Eugenia Kryshchuk finished 2-0 in doubles play to remain undefeated this season.

Also finishing 2-0 against the Vikings in doubles play were juniors Sophia Morris and Olivia Leavitt, while freshman Reggi Gibbs finished 1-1 in singles play.

Showing a better effort against Del Sol in their 16-2 victory, senior Olivia Goodfellow finished 3-0 in singles play to fuel the effort.

Junior Katelyn Fox and Gibbs finished 3-0 in doubles play, while senior Heather Patterson and junior Rebecca Mulheron finished 2-0 after coach Pappas switched her doubles lineup up around.

Senior Kali Martin and sophomore Emily Mays also finished 2-0 in doubles.

Competing in the Larry Burgess-Las Vegas Invitational at Sunset Park on Saturday, both Boulder City High School cross-country programs showed promise.

“I am happy with the teams’ performances on Saturday,” head coach Staci Selinger said. “We had some personal bests from Ethan (Porter) and Sophie (Dickerman). It was hot and they all rose to the challenge. We are on track and working hard to reach our season goals. They are running well as a team in practices and that should translate to better team scores each week.”
