The Waldron girls’ tennis team continued to roll along on Monday, remaining undefeated with a 4-1 win over Milan.
The Mohawks’ lone loss was a forfeit because No. 3 singles player Amanda Brinson was playing for the Waldron softball team that evening.
“I think the girls did really good,” coach Chelsea Platt said. “I just asked them to play their usual style of play and work on things they need to work on for county, conference and sectional because that’s our goal is to be playing our best tennis by then.”
The Mohawks dominated the Indians in all four matches that took place.
Caroline Sheaffer easily took care of Mativi Patel, 6-0, 6-0, at No. 1 singles and Nichole Garner beat Karley Busshorn, 6-2, 6-1 at No. 2 singles.
Mackenzie Shaw and Megan Bogemann controlled their match against Delaney Bushhorn and Riley Clark, 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 doubles. And Josee Larrison and Kiera Ziegler took care of Ariel Hassig and Alyssa Phelps 6-1, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles.
Waldron previously earned the Mid-Hoosier Conference championship, despite it not necessarily being a goal at the beginning of the season.
“That was pretty awesome,” Platt said. “It wasn’t even one of my goals. I’ve been focusing on the end of the year and this was just icing on the cake.”
With the conference title secured the Mohawks can also win individual titles at the conference tournament on May 15 at home, she noted.
The focuses of the season are on the county and conference tournaments, and to be playing their best in time for the sectional.
In between now and then, the Mohawks are looking to continue to improve.
“Every single position and each position has something different,” Platt said. “Getting all your serves and lessening your errors, make the other person make errors.”
