Lady Knight tennis concludes at SCE sectional

Kaneland tennis saw its season end on Saturday after the St. Charles East Sectional.

With both St. Charles outfits and Western Sun Conference anchor Geneva, it proved to be one of the more difficult groupings in 2009.

Tied with Wheaton Academy for sixth place, the Lady Knights were behind St. Charles North (30), Geneva (24), St. Charles East (18), Sycamore (12) and Bartlett (8).

Geneva senior Kayla Fujimoto was sectional singles champ, while St. Charles East tandem Lexi Baltes and Erin Bowman took the doubles title.

No. 1 singles entry Lindsay Jurcenko, No. 1 doubles team Olivia Emmanouil/Liz Webb, and No. 2 doubles unit Randi Bader/Kelsey Lenhardt were eliminated by eventual semifinalists.

The IHSA State tourney takes place on Thursday, Oct. 22, through Saturday, Oct. 24, at District 211, 214 and 220 courts throughout the northwest suburbs.

With the conclusion of the 2009 season, Kaneland tennis says goodbye to seniors Bader, Megan Cline, Emmanouil, Liz Kennedy, Tessa Kuipers, Lenhardt, Joss Nicholson, Mel Mazuc and Liz Webb.
