In the cross county match up with Preble Shawnee, the lady eagles were able to leave victorious thanks to wins from all three singles positions. We knew going in that doubles matches were going to be extremely challenging. Addie and Brianna had the toughest loss of the afternoon. It was an extremely even match and at the end Eaton had multiple match points but unforced errors along with big plays from their opponents kept them from getting the win. And when it got to the tiebreaker, Shawnee was able to run away with. At 2nd doubles, Anna and Erika had been having some great success but Shawnee came out with a new pairing than what they normally have. And simply put, it worked. Our girl’s competed hard and Shawnee was able to capitalize on our mistakes. I think our girls see why we try to do certain things in doubles. Shawnee did those things better than us today. Hopefully our girls can draw on that experience down the road. At singles, the Murphy sisters were all able to pick up wins to give Eaton the nod. Sophia had a very challenging match. After winning the 1st she trailed the entire 2nd set up until it was 4-5. Thankfully she really buckled down and focused on her shots and pulled out three straight games. Grace and Tess had to work but they managed to get through their matches. As the season draws near the Eagles are 10-2 with CJ and Centerville Black still left to play. The Eagles are also starting to focus on their league tournament coming 9/26 and then sectionals starting first of October.
