WINONA LAKE – Grace’s women’s tennis team had little trouble with Goshen on Saturday, winning 9-0 at Miller Athletic Complex.
The Lady Lancers (2-0, 2-0 Crossroads League) only dropped two games across three doubles’ courts, and Grace won every singles’ match in straight sets.
Carrie Copeland and Molly Fitzpatrick won 8-1 at No. 1 doubles, and Jenna Jackson and Jayna Armstrong won by the same score at No. 2.
Morgan Mast and Shelby Bankson blanked their opponents 8-0 at No. 3 doubles, and they were nearly unblemished in singles’ play as well. Mast at No. 5 singles and Bankson at No. 6 both won by the scoreline of 6-0, 6-1.
Jackson was perfect at No. 2 singles (6-0, 6-0), and Fitzpatrick was victorious 6-2, 6-0 at No. 4 singles. Armstrong won 6-2, 6-1 at No. 3 singles, and Copeland secured the sweep with a 6-1, 6-4 win at No. 1 singles.
“I’m very pleased with our intensity and focus from the start of the day. I thought we had an excellent warm-up to prepare us for a much improved Goshen team,” said Grace head coach Marcus Moore. “We had very solid play, specifically from Shelby and Morgan today, and our seniors led our charge from the onset.”
The Lady Lancers continue play at home on Tuesday against Indiana Tech at 4 p.m.
