KHS tennis takes care of Yorkville

By on September 23, 2010

KANELAND—It figures that the only thing to stop Kaneland from exhibiting its tennis prowess would be the elements on Tuesday.

Interrupted by lightning, the third doubles match was stopped, but Kaneland still earned a Northern Illinois Big XII win over Yorkville, 3-1.

That followed a 4-3 setback to host Oswego on Monday and a 6-1 loss to visiting Bartlett on Thursday.

The dual meet mark for Coach Tim Larsen’s Lady Knights is 6-5-1, with a 3-0 tally in NIB-12 action.

No. 1 singles star Lindsay Jurcenko took her battle with Yorkville’s Lindsey Schlichting, 6-0, 6-1. No. 2 singles entry Amelia Napiorkowski won her match with Jess Bossong, 6-2, 6-2.

The doubles win for KHS was earned by No. 2 tandem Caiti Ellefsen and Megan Hanlon over Jess Arnfelt and Rachel Ems, 6-4, 7-6.

Against the Panthers on Monday, the singles were all won by Kaneland, including a first-ever varsity win for sophomore Jess Woodward in a 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 matchup.

The lone win over Bartlett was had by Sam Williams and Jordyn Withey in doubles action, 6-3, 6-4.

Ahead for the Lady Knights is the Rochelle Invite on Saturday, Sept. 25, at 8:30 a.m.
