Quakers net win over Giants

PLAINFIELD — Down its No. 1 and No. 2 singles players, the Plainfield girls’ tennis team started three freshmen and two sophomores against Ben Davis Thursday night.

Plainfield coach Keith Bradley was happy with his younger players’ efforts, and the final result, as the Quakers edged the visiting Giants, 3-2.

“Tonight we went through some adversity,” Bradley said. “I thought all the kids battled and played well. Anytime you can get a win down your top two spots, it’s always good. ”

Ben Davis was also battling some injuries on its side and Giants assistant coach Rebecca Tudor was happy to see her player pull through.

“Julia (Calhoun) played very well tonight and she’s actually having some back problems,” Tudor said. “So, we were really pleased with how she pulled it out.”

Calhoun put the Giants on the board with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Plainfield’s Brett Allen in No. 3 singles after the Quakers had went up 2-0 in the match.

Plainfield jumped out to a very quick lead over Ben Davis as its doubles teams dropped only one game between them.

The Quakers’ No. 1 doubles duo of Jess Rigdon and Kira Siepman dispatched Ben Davis’ team of Christina Tschaenn and DeOnya Garner 6-0, 6-0. The Plainfield tandem is undefeated (8-0) on the season.

Not long after that, Plainfield’s No. 2 doubles pair of Rachel Bahr and Kristen Lees put the Quakers up 2-0 in the match with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Ben Davis’ Olivia Heifner and Mya Carter.

“Our doubles have kind of carried us all season,” Bradley said.

Plainfield’s Allison Huff secured the win with a 6-0, 7-5 win over Ben Davis’ Haley Runyon at No. 2 singles.

At No. 1 singles, Ben Davis’ Savannah Wills downed Plainfield’s Natalie Naaman in a back and forth match 5-7, 6-2, 10-5.  

“Savannah is very much a fighter and doesn’t like to lose,” Tudor said. “She’ll do whatever she can to pull it out.”
