Girls Tennis: Red Wing drops first match

Red Wing shut out Shakopee in doubles play in Missota Conference play Thursday, but the Wingers’ singles did the team no favors as the Wingers fell 4-3 in Shakopee.

Emily Otteson at No. 1 singles and Nicole Schammel at No. 2 put up fights, but they were unable to overcome the strong individual play from the Sabers. Otteson fell 6-0, 6-2 to Haley Lickfold, and Schammel fell 6-3, 7-5 to Taylor Koenen.

“(Shakopee) had a particularly strong No. 1 and 3 (Dannick Boyogueno) singles,” said Wingers’ head coach Matt Kavanagh. “It was tough for some of our girls who were not as conditioned or not as interested in singles.”

Like it has done all year, Red Wing’s best play came from its pairs. At No. 3, the duo of McKenzie Muelken and Serena Feehan won in three sets, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, against Shakopee’s Serina Fischer and Cindy Chesumbai. The Wingers’ No. 2 pairing, Katie Carlson and Lauren Brooks, won 6-2, 7-5, and Emily Stegora and Solveig Christenson won 6-3, 6-0 at No. 1.

Now at 4-1 overall and 0-1 in the Missota, Red Wing is on the road Saturday for a meet at Waseca.
