Lady Bulldogs second at Shelbyville

Three area players claim individual titles

The Batesville High School and Oldenburg Academy varsity tennis teams spent Saturday competing in the annual Shelbyville Invitational.

Eight teams converged on the Shelbville tennis complex. The Seymour Lady Owls emerged team champions with 33 points followed closely by the Lady Bulldogs with 29. Mooresville was third with 21 points followed by Oldenburg Academy with 17.

The Lady Bulldogs finished with a pair of individual champions, while Oldenburg Academy had one.

It was a long day for Batesville’s Ally Ritter at No. 3 singles, but the outcome was successful. The Batesville senior needed a pair of tie-breakers to win her first round match against Greensburg’s Tiffany Springmeyer and later another one in the championship against Seymour’s Kennedy Richart. In between the two, Ritter won her semifinal match against Mooresville’s Justine Christian.

Lydia Olsen won Batesville’s first individual title at No. 2 singles. Olsen knocked off Michele Gardner of Triton Central and Shelbyville’s Maddie Clark in the first two rounds. The BHS junior won a super tie-breaker third set in the championship against Mooresville’s Michelle Majeski.

Wilder was a winner in the No. 1 singles division. The OA player defeated Greensburg’s Sydney Reynolds in round won and followed up with a victory over Batesville’s Sarah Hoseus in round two. Wilder closed out the day with a tough three-set match against Mooresville’s Molly Fitzpatrick, which she won in a super tie-breaker.

Prior to her loss to Wilder, Hoseus made short work of Franklin County’s Jodi Barnes (6-0, 6-2) in round one.

Batesville’s No. 1 doubles team of Kelli Hartman and Brooke Bradford lost to the eventual champions from Seymour in round one, but bounced back to win their second match. The BHS duo blanked Franklin County’s Audrey Brack and Tana Stang in straight sets.

Karsen Worthington and Erin Longstreth were 1-1 at No. 2 doubles. The Batesville pair opened the tournament with a 6-0, 6-1 over Shelbyville before falling to Seymour in round two.
