Tennis Lady Bucs win three in a row

Madison Wamsley of the Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Bucs returns a serve against Fairmont Senior last week in their Big 10 Conference clash with Fairmont Senior. Wamsley won at No. 3 singles and at No. 1 doubles with Ashton Hollen as the Lady Bucs swept Fairmont Senior, 7-0.

BUCKHANNON – Following a couple of near misses to start the season that left the Buckhannon-Upshur Lady Bucs with an 0-3 start to the season, they turned around their fortunes big time last week with a trio of dominate performances in Big 10 Conference action.

Last Monday on the West Virginia Wesleyan courts, they beat Grafton by a 7-0 score.

Then on Tuesday at Robert C. Byrd, they trounced Liberty by a 6-1 score and followed that up Thursday with a 7-0 sweep over Fairmont Senior at the high school courts.

The three wins left head coach Catherine Coffield’s team with a 3-3 record and a 3-1 record in the Big 10 Conference.

The Lady Bucs were never in fear of losing a match against Grafton as No. 1 Ashton Hollen, No. 2 Johnna Smith, No. 3 Madison Wamsley and No. 4 Caitlyn Wendling were all victorious in singles action.

In doubles play, Hollen and Wamsley at No. 1 and Smith and Wendling at No. 2 recorded wins on the court while the No. 3 tandem of Kayla Hurst and Jessica Lane won by forfeit.

Against Liberty, Hollen, Smith, Wamsley and Wendling swept singles action while Smith and Wendling won at No. 2 doubles and Hurst and Iris Tenney won at No. 3 doubles.

The Lady Bucs earned another sweep against the Lady Polar Bears on Thursday.

Hollen, Smith, Wamsley and Wendling all won in individual play while Hollen and Wamsley, Smith and Wendling, and Hurst and Lane took home doubles wins.

The Lady Bucs will return to the courts Friday when they host John Marshall at 4 p.m.
