HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Jeff dominates in rain-shortened match

Charlestown, Silver Creek boys' soccer tie, 3-3


> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Jeff dominates in rain-shortened match


JEFFERSONVILLE — The Jeffersonville boys’ tennis team kept up its winning ways on Tuesday afternoon in a shutout victory over the visting Providence Pioneers. Jeff won all four matches played before the last match was stopped early due to rain.

Jeff’s doubles got things started and set a statement, winning all but three games out of the four sets played. Jeff’s one doubles team of Sam Coward and Jack Reilly remained perfect on the season with a stellar performace, beating Ryan Day and Ben Arnson in just two sets 6-1, 6-0. Coward and Reilly improved their doubles record to an impressive 7-0, and really did a good job setting the tone for the rest of the team.

As good as Coward and Reilly were, Justin Padgett and Kooper Falkenstein were even better for the Red Devils. They beat Providence’s Nolan Carrico and Patrick McPhillips at two doubles 6-0, 6-0, proving the doubles dominance that Jeff has shown all year.

The singles matches were more competitive, but the Pioneers came up short, failing to take a match in singles as well.

Jeff’s Austin Hunt defeated Will Andres at No. 1 singles, 6-4, 6-3. The Red Devils’ Brock Winchell defeated Jacob Quinkert at No. 2 singles, 7-5, 6-3. The three singles match between Jeff’s Connor Buntin and Providence’s Landon Carrico saw their highly contested match come to an end due to a rain stoppage. With both Buntin and Carrico each owning a set and the last one sitting at 3-2, this could have been anyone’s match.

Jeff improved its dual-match record to 9-1 and is continuing to get better as they play and gain more confidence.

Red Devils’ coach Mark Reilly really enjoys the way his team has been playing and was pleased in the performance he saw.

“Providence is one of the better teams we will face in this area.” said Coach Reilly, who went on to express his pleasure with the way his doubles have played this year. “I am really pleased with our doubles, giving up only three games is a really good way to start the match. They have really played well all year long.”

Jeff’s coach said how the singles games come with more pressure and can be more nerve-racking.

“I’m proud of Austin and Brock,” Coach Reilly said. “They are in tough spots and always respond. They played well under pressure and really stayed composed.”

Jeffersonville will be back in action on Thursday as it hosts Jennings County. Providence plays today at Lanesville.

    Charlestown coach Tammy Nuxoll, “CAI had a strong offense that we did not have an answer for. In the first set, they had several kills because our timing was off on our blocking. We were early on the blocks and they were able to hit over the top of us. They also had some strong jump-serves that caused us problems on serve-receive. We switched the lineup a little in the second and third sets, and we were able to slow down a few hits, which helped us pick up a few more balls on defense. We did a nice job serving with only three errors on 30 attempts.
