HOPE — Hauser’s Haley Webster pulled out a three-set win at No. 1 singles Tuesday, but Brown County won the other four matches to claim a 4-1 victory.
“We struggled a little, but our girls fought through a very tough match,” Hauser coach Elizabeth Rivers said. “It was freezing cold and windy. Our No. 1 singles player did a fantastic job.”
Webster rallied for a 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 win against Sarah Kurdziel.
“Their No. 1 singles is a strong player,” Brown County co-coach Thom Miller said. “We were impressed with her consistency. Sarah played a good match, as well. Even though Sarah lost that one, we were very impressed with how she played.”
The Eagles (2-2) got quick wins from Elisabeth Huls against Katelyn Yarling 6-1, 6-3 at No. 3 singles, Whitney Williamson and Josie Gray against Sydney Tallent and Clarie Romine 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 doubles and Cirina Greiner and Kylene Warne against Erica Bostic and Kiersten Gross 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2 doubles. Brown County’s Ashley Pugh defeated Jordan Cain 6-2, 4-6 (10-4) at No. 2 singles.
“The scores may not reflect it, but Hauser is a very solid team, well coached and are a great group of kids,” Miller said. “We had to earn it. We were happy with how we did across the board.”
