Lehman Catholic 4, Dayton Northridge 1
Lehman Catholic’s girls tennis team opened the season with a 4-1 victory on Monday at Northridge, winning enough matches by forfeit to win the match.
At first singles, Liann Trahey lost in two close sets, 6-4, 6-4. At second singles, Annie Stiver won 7-5, 6-0.
The Cavaliers then won at third singles and both doubles spots by forfeit.
“Annie was down 4-1 in the first set and settled down mentally to only lose one game the rest of the match,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “Annie was out all of last season with a hip injury, and both of our girls worked hard in open courts this summer.
“Our program has come a long way. We were where Northridge is five or six years ago. We have grown to 17 kids who work hard and support each other.”
