Quakers edge Flashes

PLAINFIELD — Plainfield’s girls’ tennis team won in dramatic fashion Wednesday night.

The Quakers won 3-2 after No. 1 singles freshman Carrie Copeland beat Franklin Central’s Courtney Muston in a third set (3-6, 6-1, 6-1). It was the first victory against the Flashes in four years for Plainfield coach Keith Bradley.

“The girls are working really hard and we have two freshman in the lineup and they are learning day in and day out,” Bradley said. “Carrie being able to pull out this win for us 3-2 in a third set was really nice. She’s growing nicely as a freshman and going to do good things for us at Plainfield.”

Copeland lost her first set to Muston 6-3 but answered back with strong 6-1 performance in the next two sets. The freshman is undefeated on the season and does not appear to be phased by pressure.

“She plays a lot of tournaments in the offseason and she’s been through a lot of stressful situations,” Bradley said. “It’s not like she’s new to that situation. For her to come out and get six wins and play as well as she’s playing I can’t be any happier as a coach. She’s just playing some awesome tennis right now.”

No. 2 singles senior Audrey Koeberlein beat Franklin Central’s Eda Shi 6-1, 6-0. The Plainfield No. 1 doubles team of Jess Rigdon and Kristen Lees beat Hannah Humbino and Melanie Justin 6-2, 6-3.

The No. 1 doubles team of Rigdon and Lees are undefeated so far throughout the season.

“The activity and the footwork out of the No. 1 doubles team right now is what has been carrying them,” Bradley said. “They played together about half the season last year and their continuity with each other and understanding of where the other one is going to be has carried over and they’ve gotten off to a nice start.”
