Eagles sweep Pirates in CVC Valley showdown

Geneva maintained its grip on first place in the Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division with a 5-0 sweep of visiting Perry on Monday.

“Great win tonight over Perry, who I believe is our top competition in the Valley Division,” Geneva coach Scott Torok said. “It was good to win at home in a very close 5-0 match, which could have gone either way.”

Gabbi Selman improved to 5-2 on the season with a 6-0, 5-7, 6-3 win over Perry’s Anna Fletcher in first singles. Abby Anderson remained undefeated with her 6-1, 6-0 win over Emily Scheuren at second singles. She improved to 6-0 on the year.

Cynthia Seames topped Meredith Robinson at third singles, 4-6, 7-6 (5), 10-3 in a super tiebreaker. She improved to 5-1 on the year.

Mackenzie Dipofi and Amelia Riddell teamed up at first doubles to defeat Nikki Rosati and Zoey Hicks, 6-2, 6-2, and Lauren Stark and Maddie Fortney knocked off Tessa Moats and Makenna Dew at second doubles, 7-6 (7) and 6-4.

Geneva’s doubles teams both improved to 5-2 on the year.

“Our singles possess the most experience on the team and we look to them to lead the way, but our doubles are getting better every day and I am pleased with their progress,” Torok said. “We know we have to play Perry again at their place so it feels good to hold serve on our home court. The season is still young.”
