TROY — The Troy tennis team’s season opener also became its home opener in impromptu fashion Monday.

And the Trojans — who were originally scheduled to play at Springfield — welcomed the Wildcats to Troy with a 5-0 victory Monday to kick off the new season.

At first singles, Kit Wolke defeated Katrina Dooley 7-5, 6-0. At second singles, Mackenzie Nosker defeated Audrey Hallmark 6-0, 6-0. At third singles, Danielle Robbins defeated Lydia Wells 6-0, 6-0.

Lehman 4,

Northridge 1

SIDNEY — The Lehman Catholic tennis team opened the season with a 4-1 win over Northridge Monday.

Angela Brunner won 6-0, 6-0 at first singles.

“Angela played really well against an athletic girl who made her play a lot of balls,” Lehman coach Tim Ungeright said. “Nice way for her to start her senior season.”

Ann Deafenbaugh lost 6-1, 6-4 at second singles.

“It was the first tennis Ann had played in a week as she has been nursing a knee injury,” Ungericht said. “I thought she got the rust off and played a good second set against another athlete.”

Mary Lins and Taylor Reinke won 6-3, 6-2 at first doubles.

“Mary and Taylor played really aggressively from 3-2 in the first set and cruised to a nice win,” Ungericht said. “Nice start for us considering most of our team has only been playing for two weeks now.
