Tennis Sweeps

Two in a row for tennis

Granville tennis on a roll

 

Granville swept up the tennis courts with back-to-back shutout wins over Hadley-Luzerne and North Warren.

Joey Lea defeated Catie Love 10-1 in number one singles competition as the Horde blanked the Eagles 7-0, in an Adirondack League tennis match on Thursday, April 14. Lea remained unbeaten on the season by shutout, 10-0, at number one singles and has not lost a regular season match since 2009.

Sam McDermott, Garrett Brown, Kayla Wheeler and Nick Kashner racked up wins for Granville. The first team doubles Jordan Bardin and Maria Stomski beat Brandon Harris and Bailey Peters, 10-1. Chris Carr and Ean Smith won number two doubles 10-0 over Frank Mosher and Megan Tracy.

Granville shut out a diminished North Warren squad April 13, 7-0.

The Cougars lacked enough players to fill out a number two doubles team and coaches said players are not allowed to play two matches in one competition, for example a No. 1 singles player cannot also be part of one of the doubles teams, as a result the Cougars started play down 1-0.

Lea, McDermott, Brown and Wheeler all won their matches 10-0 to sweep four of the singles matches while Kashner won 10-4. The first team doubles Bardin and Stomski won 10-1, while Carr and Smith received a forfeit.
