Highlander baseball team pulls dramatic comeback at St. X

> SOUTHERN INDIANA —  The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team downed Hoosier Hills Conference rival Jeffersonville on Tuesday at the Floyd Central courts, 4-1.

The Highlanders only lost five games in their three singles victories. At No. 1 singles, Floyd Central’s Olivia Boesing defeated Morgan Reilly, 6-1, 6-0. The Highlanders’ Erin Patterson won two singles over Kaitlin Wunsch, 6-2, 6-1 and Alex Jamison prevailed at No. 3 singles over the Red Devils’ Larissa Neville, 6-0, 6-1.

Floyd Central’s No. 1 doubles team of Dana Frank and Whitney Batliner defeated Jules Jenks and Emily Lewis, 6-2, 6-2.

Jeff’s only point came at No. 2 doubles, where Rachel Williams and Macy Lancaster knocked off the Highlanders’ Christine McCaffrey and Alexis Applegate, 2-6, 7-6 (7-4), 7-5.

“I think the girls played really well today,” Highlanders’ coach Rick Miller said. “We flipped our lineup a little bit. We played Alexis and Christine at doubles for the first time this season. They tried their best, but they were out of position.”
