Tennis Takes Down Edgerton
Senior Night

Whitewater Tennis pulled out a very close 4-3 victory over Edgerton on Tuesday, September 12, on Senior Night. This was a rematch of Saturday’s championship match, at the Edgerton Quad, that Edgerton had pulled out with an identical 4-3 score. The score was tied 3-3 and it came down to the match at 2 doubles. Whitewater had won the first set but had fallen behind in the second set before making a comeback and taking it in a second set tie breaker. Coach Nelson stated, “Overall we continue to make strides, but there are definitely areas that are not coming along as well as I would like. The big difference in tonight’s match was the play of Cassidy Laue. On Saturday, she was beaten by Madison Lien in straight sets. Tonight she returned the favor playing one of her most consistent, and smartest, matches of the year. Our 1 doubles team continues to play good tennis, but we are just coming up short. Tonight I was very pleased with how they kept fighting. They got down big in the second set but did not give up and brought it back, but just could not quite get over the hill. We will continue to work on those weak areas and focus on continuing our improvement.” The Whippets face East Troy on Thursday night at home.
