Roundup: Lady Eagles tennis team diversifies lineup

Picking up three wins this week, Boulder City High School’s girls tennis team advanced to 6-1 on the season.

Finishing off their week with a 17-1 victory over Adelson School, the Lady Eagles also defeated rivals Pahrump Valley 12-0 on Aug. 30 and Virgin Valley on Aug. 29.

“I really like how the team is playing right now,” head coach Jami Pappas said. “This was a really good week for us. We were able to get enough points early on to play some of our subs and get them involved. Anytime we can get some of our inexperienced girls some court time, it’s always great.”

Playing her most diverse lineup of the season, senior Olivia Goodfellow and junior reserve Rebecca Mulheron each won a pair of games in singles, while junior Olivia Mikkelson and freshman Reggi Gibbs won a game each.

In doubles play, starters juniors Tegan Pappas and Eugenia Kryshchuk, senior Natalie Bowman and junior Katelyn Fox and juniors Sophia Morris and Olivia Leavitt all won their first-round matchups before being switched off to other partners.

Playing a match each with Pappas and Kryshchuk, freshman Kathleen Grey won a pair of doubles matches, while senior Kali Martin won a doubles match with Fox and later sophomore Emily Mays.

Against Adelson School on Tuesday, Gibbs was the highlight for the Lady Eagles with a 2-0 record in singles.

The girls have won every game since their season-opening loss to The Meadows.

The Lady Eagles will travel to Del Sol today.
