Whitewater finished 5th in the Rock Valley Conference Tournament, which actually still isn’t finished. The 1 singles championship match was suspended until Tuesday due to the length of the match. East Troy has wrapped up the team championship.
Overall, the Whippets played well. Several players defeated or pushed teams much further than they had earlier in the year. Cassidy Laue won her second match of the evening over Edgerton after having lost the first set. She played a very smart second set and tiebreaker to win the match.
Doubles saw some of the Whippets best tennis of the evening. At 1 doubles, Odessa Sonn and Sophie Olson finished 4th. They played very well in the 3rd place match against East Troy. Having lost to East Troy twice already this year and finding themselves down 5-1 in the second set they fought all the way back to win the set before falling in the tiebreaker.
Two doubles was Whitewater’s best finish with a 3rd place finish. The match of the night was the semi-final between Melanie Reyes and Mariana Cano against Big Foot/Williams Bay. Whitewater had lost the earlier match in the year in straight sets and had also lost to this team 6-0, 6-0 in last year’s tournament. The girls pushed this one all the way to a third set before falling 12-10 in the tiebreaker. They were able to rebound though and took complete charge of their final match winning 6-2,6-1.
The 3rd doubles team of Katelyn Lashley and Emily Scherer also lost a close one in three sets in the first round and then came back to beat Edgerton, a team that had beat them a week ago, 6-3, 6-1.
Whitewater finishes their regular season on Monday with a dual at Beloit Memorial.
