Lions sweep Wolverines

CHESTERLAND—The marquee matchup didn’t take place but Orange left West Geauga with a 5-0 win on Wednesday.

Alexis Nyborg defeated Natalie Radatz at first singles, 6-0, 6-0, Natalie Borsh dispatched Mckenna O’Brien at second singles, 6-0, 6-1, and Sadie Meyer topped Marissa Bican at third singles, 6-0, 6-0.

The Lions were just as dominant in doubles play as Ellie McCreary and Rachael Pomeranets claimed a 6-0, 6-0 win over Anna Hogrefe and Sophie Simane at first doubles and Katie Brateanu and Rachel Glukh beat Ella Flowers and Samantha Skerbee at second doubles, 6-0, 6-0.

Orange improved to 2-0 while West Geauga dropped to 0-3.
