TROY — Lehman Catholic and Troy were coming off of tough losses on Tuesday, and it was the Trojans that put it all back together quicker on Wednesday, sweeping the Cavaliers 5-0 on the freshly-resurfaced courts at Troy High School.
Both teams began the season with wins on Monday — then both struggled in their second matches of the year on Tuesday.
Troy took on a tough Miamisburg team on the road, falling 5-0 to drop to 1-1 on the season. At the same time, Lehman was defeated by Van Wert on the road 5-0 to fall to 1-1 on the year.
“The girls were pretty down after last night’s match at Van Wert,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “But we’re kind of in the same boat we were in three years ago — a lot of sophomores, a lot of them had never played — so I started reading off all of their accomplishments from the past two years, all of our district qualifiers in that time, and that seemed to pep them up a bit.”
At first singles, Kit Wolke — wearing tape on her arm to help fight off tennis elbow — defeated Angela Brunner 6-0, 6-0. At second singles, Mackenzie Nosker defeated Ann Deafenbaugh 6-1, 6-1. And at third singles, Danielle Robbins defeated Mary Lins 6-0, 6-0.
Troy’s doubles teams were on their game, too. At first doubles, Esha Patel and Cady Rhea defeated Taylor Reineke and Lian Trahay 6-1, 6-0. And at second doubles, Maggie Wannemacher and Josie Romick — playing in her first varsity match — defeated Madi Gleason and Sarah Heurta 6-0, 6-0.
“Ann at second played the last four or five varsity matches for us last year, and the same with Mary at third and Taylor at first doubles,” Ungericht said. “And Angela at first singles, she played the whole year at third singles and then qualified for districts in doubles.”
