HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: No. 3 Floyd Central rolls past Red Devils, 5-0

Henryville’s Embry shoots school-record 30

JEFFERSONVILLE — The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team bounced back from a lackluster effort against Louisville Assumption on Monday with a convincing 5-0 victory over host Jeffersonville on Tuesday.

“I told James, my assistant, tonight, ‘We looked better in warm-up tonight than we did all night the night before,” Floyd Central coach Rick Miller said. “The effort was definitely there. The kids performed at a pretty high level tonight.”

“I thought Floyd Central did a great job against us tonight,” Jeff coach Mark Reilly said. “You can tell why they are ranked third in the state. It is good for our team to get to play someone of this caliber.”

In singles action, Floyd Central’s Olivia Boesing defeated Morgan Reilly at the No. 1 spot, 6-1, 6-2. Carmen Schreiber knocked off the Red Devils’ Julianna Jenks at No. 2, 6-3, 6-3, while the Highlanders’ Dana Frank beat Emily Lewis at No. 3, 6-1, 6-1.

“I thought Julianna Jenks did an excellent job at the No. 2 spot,” Reilly said. “There were a lot of games that could have gone her way, too. She competed very well on a high level.”

The Highlanders were equally tough at the doubles positions. At the No. 1 spot, Floyd Central’s Katherine Dauby and Whitney Batliner downed Maddy Coulter and Larissa Neville, 6-1, 6-0. At No. 2, Chelsea Shackelford and Kadey Welch turned back Jeff’s Rachel Williams and Kaitlin Wunsch, 6-2, 6-0.

Floyd Central travels to Bedford to meet Terre Haute South today. Jeffersonville travels to Jennings County on Thursday.

• Pirates oust CAI: Charlestown won both of its doubles matches to claim a 4-1 win at Christian Academy of Indiana.

At No. 1 doubles, the Pirate tandem of Emily Shaw and Erica Broady knocked off Tamar Kelly and Emily Mitchell, 6-1, 6-0. At two doubles, Charlestown’s Bailey Masingo and Hayley Trinkle downed Kacie Arrell and Callie Allison, 6-3, 6-3.

In singles action, the Pirates’ Sarah Trotter needed three sets to beat the Warriors’ Courtney Heishman at the No. 2 position, 1-6, 6-4, 6-3. Charlestown No. 3 singles player Marissa Knoebel won her match by forfeit.

“Sarah Trotter moved up to the No. 2 singles spot today and pulled out a nice three-set win,” Pirates’ head coach Chris Ryan said. “Bailey and Hayley made the necessary adjustments to their preferred style of play to keep their match from going to three sets at the No. 2 doubles spot.”

CAI’s lone point came at No. 1 singles, where Rachel Jones defeated Charlestown’s Sabine Higazy, 7-5, 6-4.

The Pirates will play Providence on Thursday at Community Park in New Albany. The Warriors will host Crawford County on Thursday.

• Clarksville gets first win: Clarksville put an end to its season-long losing streak with a 4-1 victory over North Harrison on Tuesday.

“I feel like the girls are learning how to compete,” Clarksville coach Steve Welcher said. “North Harrison is a pretty good team. A week ago, we would have probably lost. I hope this is a start of us putting it together — we will see.”

Clarksville won all three singles matches. At No. 1 singles, Chloe Stephens put away Maddie Jones, 6-3, 7-5. Jackie Slaten defeated Allison Goldman, 6-4, 6-3, while Tesia Jenkins downed Alison Sieg, 6-4, 6-0.

Clarksville’s fourth point came at No. 2 doubles, where Sharon Garcia and Abigail Hurtgen fended off Sierra Bliss and Kaylee Nordhoff in a 6-0, 7-5 triumph.

Clarksville hosts Eastern on Thursday.
