H.S. ROUNDUP: Borden whips Rebels, clinches SAC tennis title again

Highlanders go to 20-0 after 11-3 win over Seymour

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — Borden’s domination of South Central on Thursday earned the Braves a 5-0 victory and the Southern Athletic Conference championship.

Borden improved to 9-0 overall and 4-0 in the SAC after surrendering just two games during Thursday’s victory. The SAC championship is the Braves’ sixth straight.

“Our team has been blessed to have a group of girls that work hard in and out of season,” Borden coach Ross Shauver said. “Their hard work has paid off in all of our matches so far, but we still have quite a bit of work to do to reach the end.”

Abby Ellis, Sarah Hurst and Kendyl Wheatly all earned 6-0, 6-0 win in singles’ action, as did Bailee Kruer and McKenzie Owens at No. 2 doubles. At No. 1 singles, Paige Kruer and Morgan Mast lost two games in the opening set against Hannah Pumphrey and Savannah Morris before winning the second 6-0.

Borden will put its unbeaten mark on the line next week when it hosts Charlestown on Monday and Providence on Tuesday.

• Highlanders beat Assumption, 4-1: Floyd Central won all four completed matches in Thursday’s 4-1 victory over Assumption.

The Highlanders won all three singles positions and Dana Frank and Whitney Batliner earned a tough 6-7 (5-7), 6-0, 10-4 win at No. 1 doubles. After winning the opening set, Catherine Dauby and Erin Patterson were forced to retire, due to Patterson’s twist ankle, in the second set.

NEXT: Floyd Central (11-4) hosts Jennings County, Monday (HHC first round).

• Clarksville beats New Wash, 4-1: Clarksville won at No. 2 and No. 3 singles and swept the doubles matches for a 4-1 victory over New Washington

After dropping the opening set, Clarksville’s Miranda DeKorte came back to beat Ashley Johnson 6-0, 6-4 in the second and third sets to win at No. 3 singles.

New Wash’s win came from Courtney Amick, who beat Abigail Hurtgen 6-3 in each set for a straight-set victory.

 NEXT: Clarksville hosts Henryville, today; New Washington hosts Christian Academy, today.

• Pioneers fall to Seymour: Jacqueline Hollkamp earned Providence’s lone point as the Pioneers fell to Seymour 4-1.

Hollkamp improved to 13-1 at No. 1 singles with a 6-3, 6-0 triumph over Sylvia Ashley.
