Eagles soar in win over Perry

The rain forced Geneva’s match at Perry indoors but it couldn’t keep the Eagles from shining.

Geneva swept all three singles matches and earned a split in the doubles to defeat the Pirates at Pine Lake Tennis Club on Monday, 4-1.

“A big thank you to Perry coach Bob Walker and his staff at Pine Lake for letting us come in and play our match today,” said Geneva coach Scott Torok. “As we go along, it gets harder and harder to reschedule matches because we do not have open dates so it was very nice of him to do that for us today.”

Geneva’s Kate Keenan defeated Brook Ward in the first singles match, 6-2, 6-3. Gabbi Selman needed the super tie-breaker to beat Perry’s Anna Fletcher, 6-4, 2-6, 10-8, at second singles and Abby Anderson knocked off Emily Scheuren at third singles, 6-3, 6-1.

Perry’s first doubles team of Mandy Scheuren and Molly Robinson defeated Alyssa Fix and Adrian Quinn, 6-1, 6-1. Geneva’s second doubles team of Cynthia Seames and Mackenzi Dipofi knocked off Claire Scales and Kayla Zampini, 6-1, 6-0.

“The surface at Pine Lake is clay and many of my players are not familiar with that but they played well considering the surface change,” Torok said. “At the halfway point of the season, we are 7-3 and we are excited with that record but we still have a lot of work to do and the girls know that. Our goal is to get better each day and we believe if we’re not getting better we’re getting worse, so we make that a priority at every practice and every match. We have some big matches coming up along with the (Chagrin Valley Conference) tournament and the county tournament so we are excited about tackling the second half of the season.”
