Lady Robins battle Raiders for 6-1 GNC tennis victory
space
Antigo's girls tennis team traveled to Medford Thursday for a Great Northern Conference match, with the Lady Robins securing the 6-1 victory.

“We went in knowing that we had to bring our best game because every conference point counts right now,” Robins coach Aimee Hein noted.

As the season quickly winds down, coaches are keeping a watchful eye on conference scores as the GNC title is up for grabs at Rhinelander sits at 6-1 in the conference, 42-7 overall with 84 points. Antigo follows at 6-0, 37-5 and 74 points while Newman is 5-1, 30-12 and 60 points.

Senior, Maya Gaedtke's No. 1 singles match went quickly to give her a quick and painless 6-2, 6-1 win.

Ellie Kelly started slow at No. 2 singles, but she quickly gathered her bearings and pushed through for a win. Avery Nicholson had an opposite experience at No. 3 singles.

“She started out strong, but after the first set she faltered a bit,” Hein said. “Despite her opponents push to catch up, Avery managed to take the win.”

Margo Kelly had some really beautiful plays at No. 4 singles but couldn't quite get the big points at the right times, making her fight for a win a bit longer.

Julia Westen was still out with an injury, so Ellie Preboski filled in at No. 3 doubles with Greta Parsons. “The girls started confidently with a win in the first set, but that's when things started to fall apart a bit. The duo caught our girls out of position often and took advantage of the openings we gave them for a loss,” the coach added.

In a game of opposites, Samantha Belling and Jenna Lenzner fell quickly in the first set in their No. 2 doubles match.

“The girls changed their positioning and used the wind instead of fighting for a big come back in the second and eventually the third set,” Hein said.

The No. 1 doubles was a big match last night, as both doubles teams were undefeated in the conference. One of the teams, however, would be going home with an added loss to their record.

Taylor Arrowood and Abby Robrecht knew they would have a hard fight, so they came prepared for that undefeated record. The match was intense, each of the three long sets going back and forth, game for game.

Arrowood's lobs and Robrecht's smashes at the night stayed consistent, though, and that persistence and grit finally brought them the big win.

“We left the Medford courts in the dark, but at least we had the 6-1 victory,” Hein stated.

Antigo will have a short break before hosting Newman Monday at 4:30 p.m.
