Savanna Purdom didn't lose a game in her No. 1 singles win, leading Lincoln's girls tennis team to a 3-2 victory over Pike Central on Tuesday at the Alices' courts.
The Alices collected all three wins in singles. Purdom shut out Ella McGuire; No. 2 Ashlyn Hillenbrand knocked off Shelby Keeker, 6-1, 6-1; and No. 3 Macey Fisher bounced Jaime Sallee, 6-0, 6-2.
In the doubles wins for the Chargers, No. 1 Kenley Beck-Zoey Davis topped Abby West-Mallory Friend, 6-0, 6-3; and No. 2 Reagan Craig-Ella Adams outlasted Dalayla Anderson-Makenzie Clark, 6-7 (7-2), 6-4, 1-0 (14-12).
Emma Schnepper won one of two junior varsity matches, prevailing 6-3.
"It feels good to get a win, especially without our No. 1 singles player in the lineup," Lincoln coach Bryce Crane said. "Savanna, Ashlyn and Macey had their feet on the gas from the first ball and never let up. The doubles team both came away with a lot of positive momentum after putting up respectable scores in their matches. I was proud of Emma getting her first win of the year too."
The Alices play at Terre Haute South at 5 p.m. today and are at Sullivan at 5 p.m. Monday.
Jasper knocks off golf Patriots
JASPER — Freshman Parker Steininger shot a team-best 42 in his high school debut, but that was about the only bright spot for Rivet's golf team as Jasper rolled to a 170-208 win Tuesday at Buffalo Trace.
Christian Steininger shot 47 for the Patriots, Curtis Shake 53 and Peyton Catt 66.
Rivet coach Chris Steininger noted the tightness of Buffalo Trace, but said his team didn't post a good score.
"I was pretty disappointed. I was expecting a little better. Unfortunately we've lost two players, and I'm going to have to readjust my expectations," Steininger said. "Parker played well and even left a few out there. Christian started out awful, a double bogey, bogey, bogey and a triple, but he finished strong."
Nick Buechlein was medalist, shooting a 1-over-par 37 for the Wildcats.
The Patriots play at High Pointe C.C. at 4:30 p.m. Thursday with Loogootee and host North Knox.
