Granite Falls, Lakewood fall to South Whidbey girls tennis team

South Whidbey swept Granite Falls and Lakewood in girls tennis this week.

The Falcons recorded their fifth and sixth sweeps of the season with different lineups in the two matches.

Against Cascade Conference opponents Lakewood on April 29 and at Granite Falls on May 1, South Whidbey won each match 7-0.

“They are willing to play wherever and with whomever I need them to … I think it’s paid off to work on both singles and doubles — they are becoming better rounded tennis players and that’s not only helping us when we need to change the lineup, but it’s helping them develop their games and their confidence,” said Falcon head coach Karyle Kramer in an email.

On Thursday against Granite Falls, South Whidbey did not lose a single set. In singles: Isla Dubendorf defeated Laura Gilbertson 6-1, 6-1; Katrina Layton defeated Brianna Cervarich 6-2, 6-1; Lindsay Oppelt defeated Holly Carry 6-1, 6-3; and Kendra Warwick defeated Stephanie Selia 6-1, 6-2. In doubles: Amelia Weeks and Tess Radisch defeated Hailey Arndt and Katlyn Gresli 6-1, 6-4; Colleen Groce and Bayley Gochanour defeated Annie Hart and Mckenzie Meyer 6-3, 6-4 after coming back from a 3-0 deficit in the second set; and Alexa Hess and Kara Mead defeated Emma Loney and Brynne Mota-Soriano 6-1, 6-2.

Play went quickly on Tuesday against Lakewood as South Whidbey won every set. Singles: Weeks defeated Christina Barber 6-1, 6-2; Radisch defeated Kylie Staley 6-0, 6-2; Sophie Nilsen defeated Jackie Stover 6-2, 6-0; and Groce defeated Hannah Krutsinger 6-4, 6-2.
