Staff Reports

The Lehman Catholic girls tennis got a win over Piqua Wednesday.

But, it didn’t come easy as the Cavaliers escaped with a 3-2 victory.

“My hats off to the Piqua team and their coaches Kylia Starrett and my great lifelong friend assistant coach Bonnie Davis,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “They didn’t even have a team three years ago and now have 20 girls out and have lots of smart, well-coached players. Their future is bright and they will win their share of matches this season.”

Lehman swept the singles matches.

Claire Larger defeated Alexa Knorr-Sullivan 6-4, 6-1; Sarah Gibson defeated Alexis Gastelu 6-0, 6-0; and Angela Brunner defeated Izzy King 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

“Great team win for us tonight after the tough loss at Carroll last night,” Ungericht said. “Claire (Larger) bounced back with a solid win over a scrappy girl and Sarah (Gibson) was just steady as a rock. She has wonfour out her last five matches and is playing the best for us.

“I’m very proud of junior Angela Brunner. She battled back after losing the first set to win the last two sets to clinch the match for us. It came down to the third set in that match.”

Piqua swept the doubles matches.

Skylar Cain and Cassie Arnett defeated Ann Pannapra and Keira Burns 7-5, 2-6, 6-4 and Grace Ryan and Rikki Ramirez defeated Brienna Werling and Mary Lins 6-4, 6-0.

“Close loss in a long match to a steady piqua team for us at first doubles,” Ungericht said. ” Second dubs (doubles) battled back after being down 4-0 in the first set but the Piqua girls were just too steady.”

Annie Stiver and Ann Deafenbaugh won a JV doubles match for Lehman.

Lehman is now 1-5, while Piqua is 0-2.
