SELLERSBURG — Floyd Central and Jeffersonville each advanced to today’s Silver Creek Regional championship match by winning their respective semifinal matches on Tuesday at the Silver Creek High School courts. Today’s title match will start at 4:30 p.m.

The sixth-ranked Highlanders swept the host Dragons in one semifinal, 5-0.

The most competitive match at No. 1 singles was between two of the best players in Southern Indiana. Highlander senior Olivia Boesing rallied from a one-set deficit to defeat the Dragons’ Kat Hebble in three sets, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

At No. 2 singles, Floyd Central’s Alexis Applegate downed Grace Clayton, 6-1, 6-0. At No. 2 doubles, the Highlander tandem of Katherine Dauby and Erin Patterson knocked off Creek’s Kelsi Scott and Kaitlyn Hawkins, 6-2, 6-3.

Floyd Central No. 3 singles player Christine McCaffrey and the Highlanders’ No. 1 doubles pair of Whitney Batliner and Dana Frank each won 6-0, 6-0.

Jeff defeated archrival New Albany in the other semifinal, 3-2.
