Senior Allison Pascoe won her first match as a singles player in two sets, 6-4, 6-3, to help lead the Marysville girls tennis team to its first team victory when the Tomahawks hosted Arlington April 3.
Pascoes old doubles partner, junior April Bobadilla, lost her match with new partner Jodie Anderson, but M-P tennis coach Nathan McClellan said he saw a lot of promise in their performance as Anderson adjusted from playing singles earlier in the season.
It was tough for them to make the transition. They only played once together, so well see if we cant get them to click better together, he said.
M-P won three of the four singles matches and two of the three doubles matches to take their first team win, leaving Arlington as the sole cellar dweller in the Wesco North with no wins.
It went well. We played well, and its kind of hard to say when you play another team that struggled through this year, its hard to say how well we played, McClellan added.
The two doubles team wins came in two sets each as Lindsey Schuetze and Amy Famelos defeated their opponents 6-4, 6-2 and juniors Chloe Aiwohi and Caitlin Watson took down Arlingtons Savannah Bridges and Maddie Paden 6-3, 6-3.
The two other singles wins went into tiebreaker sets as Ashley Bartlett beat Andrea Parlin 7-6, (7-3), 4-6, (14-12) and Kelsey Brubaker earned the praise of her coach with a 6-1, 7-6, (7-5) defeat of Arlingtons Krista Sparks.
I was happy with the girls, McClellan said. I thought we did better than we did in the past. It helped to get a win under their belt.
