HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS' TENNIS: Jeffersonville downs Providence tennis, 4-1

JEFFERSONVILLE — The Jeffersonville girls’ tennis team got a win over sectional rival Providence on Monday at the Ralph Scales Sports Complex, 4-1. 

“Even though it was 4-1, it was not quite like an easy 4-1 victory,” Jeff coach Mark Reilly said. “They’re definitely a competitive team and one of the top four in the area. It was a good win.”

Providence coach Vince DiNoto was happy with the way his team played, despite his team taking its first loss of the season. 

“I felt real good with where we were at, since we were without ... No. 2 singles player (Maggie Bremmer) today, a senior player for me,” DiNoto said. “So I played three girls who — they’ve played this year, but they did not play for me last year. One of them wasn’t even on the team last year.”

The Pioneers’ Alison Primavera spelled Bremmer at the No. 2 spot, where Jeff’s Julianna Jenks won a 6-1, 6-0 match. 

“She held her own,” DiNoto said. “She was first off the court, but it wasn’t like she got wiped off the court. It was a competitive match, and the score may not show it was as competitive as it was.” 

Because of occasionally high winds, Jeff No. 1 singles player Morgan Reilly was forced to adjust her game a bit, but was still able to get a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Providence’s Jacqueline Hollkamp. 

“I think Jacqueline came out today and did a really good job with the wind and building hitter’s shots, and Morgan was missing the cue a little bit,” Reilly said. “So we just had to tighten the target areas and bring it a little bit from the lines and then cut back on the unforced errors, and that helped.”

Jeffersonville finished off the singles sweep with a victory by Larissa Neville at the No. 3 spot, who fended off Abbie Shelton, 6-2, 6-4.
