HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Floyd Central sweeps Jeff

Highlanders drop only nine games in win

JEFFERSONVILLE —  The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team swept Jeffersonville taking all five matches from the host Red Devils on Tuesday in a 5-0 victory.

The Highlanders had a good team performance and together only lost nine games combined.

“This was a big win for us,” Floyd Central coach Rick Miller said. “We were trying to fight the rain, we don’t have time for a make-up.”

The Highlanders played like they were in a hurry. Floyd Central’s Alexis Applegate got things started and won her match over Kaitlin Wunsch 6-0, 6-0 to set the match’s tone. The Highlanders’ Giorgia Rossetto followed it up with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over Emily Lewis, and Dana Frank beat Jeff’s Larissa Neville, 6-0, 6-2.

Floyd’s doubles teams were just as dominant winning both matches, 6-1, 6-1. The Highlander tandem of Alex Jamison and Kylie Wheeler defeated Rachel Williams and Libby West, while Kailyn Little and Emily Stock put down Jeff’s Katie Bowen and Haley Asplund.

“Jeff has a real good team. I’m really pleased we were able to get this win, Miller said. “Our scores were good, but it’s still hard to judge how good we played because of the wind (25-30 mph gusts).”

Floyd Central improved its record to 6-3. The Highlanders will host Louisville Assumption on Thursday. Assumption was the Kentucky state champions two years ago.

Jeffersonville falls to 5-6 on the season. The Red Devils will pick up play again on Thursday at Jennings County.
