On the move

Local players advance in boys & girls state tennis action

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

 

LEXINGTON — Mother Nature played a big role during the opening day of the Boys and Girls State Tennis Tournaments. She caused just enough havoc to put a major dent into Thursday’s first and second round schedules.

Thunderstorms forced girls doubles action to be played indoors at the University of Kentucky’s Boone Tennis Center while girls singles action was moved to Eastern Kentucky University’s Greg Adams Indoor Courts. All boys’ action was moved to the Lexington Tennis Center.

The Tri-County was represented well in both the boys’ and girls’ singles and doubles action.

Boys

Singles

Corbin’s Connor Maguet won his opening round match by defeating George Rogers Clark, 6-3, 6-1 while Whitley County’s Danny Butcher cruised past Greenwood’s Billy Adams, 6-0, 6-0.

Doubles

Corbin’s Seth Heinss and Josh Jewell remain alive after they defeated Highlands’ Zac Carter and Franklin Graves, 6-1, 6-3. North Laurel’s Spencer Bolton and Arjun Kanthawar dropped their first round match to Apollo’s Austin Richards and Jared Richards, 6-0,6-0, while Whitley County’s Matt Douglas and Christian Tan fell to Henderson County’s Will Angermeier and Quin Stallings, 3-6, 6-4, 8-10. Corbin’s Harrison Reedy and William Reedy fell to Kentucky Country Day’s Matt Harrison and Hendley Traughber, 6-1, 6-0.

Girls

Singles

South Laurel’s Neha Rao advanced to second round play with a 6-0, 6-1 first round victory over Notre Dame’s Caroline Krumme, while Corbin’s Ellie Jane Carloftis fell to Assumption’s Abbie Mather, 6-0, 6-0. Corbin’s Catherine Crawford also advanced to the round of 32 with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Garrard County’s Emily Major.

Doubles

Corbin’s Sydney Ledington and Jaclyn Jewell advanced to the quarterfinals (no scores were reported) with two wins while Emma Kate Carloftis and Julie Crawford won their first round match before losing (no scores reported) to Highlands’ Lexi Herman and Abby Herman in second round action. North Laurel’s Pooja Kanthawar and Caroline Moore dropped their first round match to Highlands’ duo of Herman and Herman (no score reported).

Sports Editor’s Note — Not all first round scores and second round scores were available to the Times-Tribune by press time.
