Just Out Of Reach
Wawasee nearly claimed its first win of the season on the boys tennis courts, but fell a game on the wrong side of a 3-2 loss to visiting Central Noble.
Kyler Love earned a one singles win over Kaleb Luce 6-1, 6-3 while the one doubles team of Isaac Rigdon and Dylan Houser beat Jared Estep and Devon Smith three and two.
Central Noble’s Chris Truelove and Matt Paul won the two and three singles courts, respectively, 6-3, 6-4 and 6-0, 6-1 over Todd Hauser and Doug Hapner.
The Cougars claimed the team win at two doubles, where Colton Conrad and Caleb Harlan outlasted Roz Kunkle and Chase Myers 5-7, 6-4, 7-5.
Tanner Tisher picked up a pair of JV court wins for Central Noble against Leonard Kline 6-3, 6-4.
Girls Fit To Be Tied
A goal in the 38th minute by Lexy Blunk was all it took to preserve a 1-1 tie at Manchester in girls soccer.
Blunk’s goal, her second of the season, equalized a strike by Hayleigh Collett in the 32nd minute. The tie moves Wawasee to 2-1-1 on the season heading into its first Northern Lakes Conference match this Saturday with Concord coming to town.
