The Lions fell 8-1 to the Green Devils in their first meeting of the season. This time it was a nail-biter. The two teams split singles wins, 3-3, but Osage captured two of three doubles matches for the win.
“We were tied at four matches each and number one doubles team Jenna Peterson and Carly Ouverson were tied at 10 games each,” explained Coach Martha Andrews. A seven-point tie breaker was played, with Osage’s Hejhal and Chisholm winning 7-3. The victory lifted Osage to the team victory.
“All of the team had improved so much, as the game scores show,” added Andrews.
