From Coach Nelson:
The Whippets finished their 2018 dual meet season with a 6-1 win over Beloit Memorial. Whitewater finished the season at 14-8.
Whitewater changed their line-up around for this final dual, allowing several seniors an opportunity to play some different positions or varsity matches to conclude their high school dual careers. In addition, Beloit was missing one of their third doubles’ players, so the match was played with five singles and two doubles teams.
The Whippets played solid tennis at every position. Cassidy Laue, moved up to 1 singles from her normal 3 singles position and lost a tough three set match. Hailey Murphy moved up from jv for the evening to win a tough two set win at three singles. Hannah Hoesly and Josie Hintz moved up from jv to play the two doubles spot and played a very nice match winning in straight sets. The biggest comeback of the evening came from Marissa Mueller at 4 singles. Not used to playing singles, as she is one of Whitewater’s regular third doubles’ players, required some major adjustments. After the first set, Marissa made those adjustments and took control of the match.
Whitewater will return to action next Monday at UWW as they begin WIAA Sub-sectional play.
