Tennis team swept

Despite an improved performance across the board, Whitehall’s tennis team was swept by Greenwich last Wednesday.

The Railroaders played better in their second match of the season but unfortunately the results were no better.

Alex Wood and Ryan St. Clair, playing at number one and two, respectively, both lost hard fought matches 10-5.

Number three singles player Rachel Aubin came closest to posting a victory for Whitehall, falling 10-6.

Harlie Keane and Zach Rice fell 10-2 and 10-5, respectively.

The doubles team of Faith Eaton and Matt Austin lost 10-1 and Beoncia Chaplin and Allison Truttling came close but lost 10-6.

On Friday, the team again fell by a 7-0 score, this time to Schuylerville.

St. Clair and Rice both came close in their matches but fell 10-5 and 10-6, respectively.

Aubin and Keane each won two games as did the doubles team of Eaton and Austin.

The team was swept for the fourth time this season on Monday against Corinth.

St. Clair had the most success, winning four games.

The Railroaders will look to pick up their first win of the season as they travel to Granville tomorrow and Lake George on Monday before returning home to host Hadley Luzerne on Wednesday.
