All four invitational teams among state’s best

Zionsville — The Zionsville girls tennis team is in the midst of a tough stretch in which they play five matches in 48 hours.

It didn’t seem to affect them Friday, April 26, when they topped Lebanon 5-0 at Zionsville West Middle School.

“I thought we played extremely well,” Zionsville head coach Matt Moore said. “This is our second match in what is going to be five in a 48-hour period. Our goal today was to play poised and focused, and play as quick as we could to save energy for tomorrow. In singles play, we did a good job of controlling the baseline. In doubles play, we did a good job with our net volleys and controlling serves.

At No. 1 singles, Candace Park topped Sarah Curts 6-0, 6-0, and at No. 2 singles Lauren Ward defeated Shelby Dejka 6-1, 6-1.

At No. 3 singles, Natasha Wujek defeated Megan Stuteville 6-2, 6-2.

In doubles play, Zionsville’s No. 1 team of Kelly Mattingly and Erin Cordill topped Kaitlin Heick and Allyson Davis 6-2, 6-1 and the No. 2 team of Allison Gruninger and Lillie Heigl topped Kaitlin Wirey and Taylor Dejka 6-1, 6-0.

With wins Thursday and Friday, the Eagles now prepare for their own invitational Saturday, in which they will play three matches.

Moore said he was happy to see the girls take advantage of points to get done quickly.

“With the weather we have had, and it has been like this for all spring sports, it has happened to have a lot of back-to-back-to-back matches, and that starts to wear on the body,” Moore said. “So any chance you have to be quicker in a match you have to be ready to take advantage to conserve energy.”

Both teams have had numerous changes in their schedules — both match and practice — because of the weather.

Both coaches said their teams have done a good job of making the best of the situation they have been dealt.

Moore said the Eagles are mentally tough and have made the most of their indoor practices.
