Owls beat Olympians

The Seymour tennis team started out the Hoosier Hills Conference tournament with a comfortable 5-0 win against Columbus East at home.

At singles, Brooke Schafstall won 6-0, 6-0 at one singles, Madalyn Baurle won 6-1, 6-1 at two singles and Elise Hartung won 6-0, 6-2 at three singles.

Due to an injury to Ashley Clemente, freshman Ava Sunbury was slotted alongside Caroline Thompson at one doubles. The duo won a third-set tiebreaker 4-6, 6-2, 10-8. The two doubles team of Jessica Hougland and Addison Hunsley won 6-2, 6-0.

“Not only was it a good win because we want to win in conference, but everybody played well,” head coach Sharon Wood said. “Mr. (Bob) Wood said we have some singles players who are playing ‘brilliant,’ and those are the types of things I liked to hear when I’m over watching the doubles teams. Our singles was dominating tonight, and they did the things they wanted to do.”

Seymour is now 13-2 this season and has only suffered losses to top-ranked Columbus North and Franklin Community.

With Monday’s win, the Owls now advance to Wednesday to take on Floyd Central at home. The Highlanders defeated Jeffersonville on Monday.

Last year, Seymour won the HHC by defeating Floyd 3-2 in the championship. This year, the two teams meet in the semifinals.

“Floyd is bigger, better and stronger than they were last year, so we’re gonna have our work cut out for us,” Wood said. “Tonight set us up to go out there and play a good match. We’re playing with a lot of confidence. We have our work cut out for us, but I don’t think anyone can take us lightly because on any given night, we’re a very competitive team.”
