Lady Lynx open season with 2 wins at home quad
August 26. 2014 1:26PM
Brandon Valley proved to be the better of two of three girl’s tennis programs at Friday’s home season opener, a quadrangular with visiting Rapid City Stevens, Watertown and Brookings. The Lady Lynx dropped a 6-3 loss to Stevens, then rebounded by disposing of ESD opponents in a 6-3 win over Watertown followed up by 9-0 blanking of Brookings.
“I was very pleased with our opening day,” said Lynx head coach Chris Dummermuth. “We won two duals and suffered a 6-3 loss to one of the top teams in the state while we were trying out three new doubles pairings and debuting two players to varsity competition. I consider that a productive day at the office!”
Jessica Sadler lived up to her No. 1 singles role Friday. The Lady Lynx junior went unscathed in all three matches, as did Marie Schmitz (No. 4 singles) and the No. 2 doubles team of Makenzie Marso and Schmitz.
The 2-1 Lady Lynx hit the road for three days of West River tennis action, starting with back-to-back duals against Pierre and St. Thomas More on Thursday. Brandon Valley starts Friday off with a dual against Rapid City Central, before playing in the two-day Rapid City Invite. Following the Labor Day break, the Lynx will play a dual at O’Gorman starting at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
