Tennis loses pair of matches

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The effort has been there, but so far the results have not for Whitehall’s tennis team.

The Railroaders failed to win a match in two contests against Granville and Corinth.

The Tomahawks defeated Whitehall 7-0 on Monday afternoon.

Corinth’s second, third, and fourth singles surrendered a total of two points as they cruised to victories.

Dominic Gregory played a spirited match against No. 1 single Jared Vanderwaker before eventually falling 10-4.

Despite the loss, Gregory said it was the most fun he’s had in a match all season.

Alex Wood played a back-and-forth match against Eddy Marreale at No. 5 singles. It was close halfway through the match, with Marreale holding a slim 6-5 lead before ripping off four straight games for the victory.

Megan Lane and Ian Rollins lost their doubles match 10-4, and Emilee Wilbur and Lia McKee lost their match 10-2.

Last Wednesday, the team traveled to Granville to play an undefeated Golden Horde team that is leading the Adirondack League.

All five singles players and the number one doubles team were blanked by Granville.

Faith Eaton and Harley Keane were the only Railroaders to score a point, dropping their match by a margin of 8-2.

The Railroaders finish the regular season at home against North Warren on Friday afternoon.
