PIQUA — Lehman Catholic’s girls tennis squad picked up its first win of the season by beating Piqua 3-2 on Wednesday.
Claire Larger beat Alexa Knorr-Sullivan at first singles 6-4, 6-1. Sarah Gibson beat Alexis Gastelu at second singles by two 6-0 scores and Angela Brunner beat Izzy King at third singles 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Brunner’s victory clinched the match for Lehman.
Keira Burns and Ann Pannapara lost at first doubles to Skylar Cain and Cassie Arnett 5-7, 6-2 and 4-6. Brieanna Werling and Mary Lins lost at second doubles to Grace Ryan and Rikki Ramirez 6-4 and 6-0.
“Great team win for us tonight after the tough loss at Carroll (Tuesday) night,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “Claire bounced back with a solid win over a scrappy girl and Sarah was just steady as a rock. She has won four out her last five matches and is playing the best for us.
“Close loss in a long match to a steady Piqua team for us at first doubles. Second dubs battled back after being down 4-0 in the first set but the Piqua girls were just too steady. I’m very proud of junior Angela Brunner. She battled back after losing the first set to win the last sets.”
Lehman improved to 1-1 with the win. The Cavaliers will play next on Monday at Sidney.
