Avon dominates Westfield


The Avon girls’ tennis team withstood cold and gusty conditions to come away with a 4-1 win over visiting Noblesville on Thursday.

After a tough loss Wednesday night at Hamilton Southeastern, Avon coach Robert Mize said he talked to the team about playing within itself.

“This was the most controlled we’ve played in a while,” Mize said. "They played some of the best tennis they’ve played all season. We made all the right decisions.”

Senior Sabrina Becker came away with a win in the No. 1 singles spot in straight sets, 6-4, 7-5.

Mize praised Becker's play throughout.

“Today she played a really well-rounded match,” Mize said.

Junior Kari Thrasher won at the No. 2 singles spot in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2.

Junior Maddie Jones finished strong after falling behind a set to earn the win at the No. 3 singles spot, 2-6, 6-1, 6-0.

Avon split its doubles matches. The No. 1 team of juniors Erin Pool and Audrie Hillis dropped their match in three sets. The No. 2 team of seniors Maddie Hayes and Brittany Berg came from behind after dropping the first set to win, 4-6, 6-0, 6-4.

Mize said he hopes the team can use the win as momentum moving forward, but that it's focused on consistency and playing fundamentally sound.

“I think this is a good building block," he said. "We need to play at a level where we aren’t beating ourselves. It’s coming together. Towards the end of the season, we’re hoping to peak.”

Avon continues its homestand against Lafayette Harrison at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, followed by Lafayette Jeff at 1 p.m.
