Successful Weekend for Tennis Against State's Top Teams

Successful Weekend for Tennis Against State's Top Teams

During this weekend's Tennis play, the LCA girls played against three of the top teams in the state. Russell is a perennial region 16 power. Notre Dame has dominated the 9th region for many years and Elizabethtown has done the same in the 5th region. Despite having two of the top six players unavailable for these three matches, the LCA girls were able to defeat Russell and lost a close match to E-town.  Even though they lost 5-0 to Notre Dame, four of the five matches were very close. The top doubles team of Katie Eden and Caroline Lancaster lost in a 3rd set tiebreaker to the #1 Notre Dame team and defeated the #1 E-town team 6-1,6-3.  The E-town team then defeated Notre Dame in a 3rd set tiebreaker.

During the boy's play, Adam Slone played the defending state singles champion, Austin Hussey, of Covington Catholic in a very competitive match despite the score. The LCA boys lost the team match 3-2 to Covington Catholic, but were missing Landon Puckett, one of their top players.  

Overall, LCA had a good performance this weekend against highly regarded teams despite missing some of its best players.
