Corbin falls short

Lady Redhounds' quest for a state title comes to an end against Sacred Heart

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

LEXINGTON — The Corbin Lady Redhounds’ quest for a state championship came to an end Wednesday at the University of Kentucky’s Boone Tennis Center after dropping a 3-0 decision to Sacred Heart in Final Four action.

The Lady Redhounds (19-3) dropped both doubles matches and a singles match, as the Valkyries advanced to the state championship to face-off against Lone Oak.

Despite the loss, Corbin coach Donnie Head was proud of his team’s achievement this season.

“We knew the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles were going to be tough to win, so we knew we had to win all three singles matches and we just fell short,” he said. “Everyone out here knew we were overmatched in No. 1 and No. 2 doubles, but our singles players played tough.

“We had a chance,” he added. “We really weren’t out of it. Our one and two singles lost the first set, but they were hanging tough in the second set and Jaclyn (Jewell) had a tough draw at the No. 3 singles, but we put a scare in a big school and we’re hungry now and we’re going to want to come back up here again.”

Jaclyn Jewell dropped her singles match to Sacred Heart’s Abbey MacMillian, 6-3, 6-3 while Corbin’s Emma Kate Carloftis and Julia Crawford fell to Katherine English and Sydney Thompson, 6-2, 6-0. Makayla Beecham and Ellie Jane Carloftis dropped their doubles match to the Valkyries Mary Elaine Kud and Erin Macmillian, 6-0, 6-0.

Corbin’s Sydney Ledington dropped the first set to Caroline Walters, 7-6, and was tied at one apiece in the second set before seeing Sacred Heart wrap up the win while Lady Redhound Catherine Crawford dropped a 6-0 decision in the first set to Ashley Hammons before taking a 5-3 lead in the second set before action was stopped due to the Valkyries’ match win.

“We were 19-3 this year and we were sectional champions, so that’s a pretty good season,” Head said. “Our goal was to come up here and see what happens and we made a great effort. The mountain was a little high and we just couldn’t get to the top of it.

“This was a good experience for the girls,” he added. “I think this was a great accomplishment for our program and this experience will push us to come back up here.”
