Rain postpones Westminster-S. Carroll showdown Tennis

April 22, 1993|By John Harris III | John Harris III,Contributing Writer

Looks like the battle for county tennis supremacy will be on NTC hold for a couple of days after showers interrupted play in the boys and girls Westminster-South Carroll tennis matches yesterday afternoon.

Of the six matches which started at 4 p.m., only two managed to get in a full set. Both teams agreed to resume the matches on Monday or Tuesday afternoon.

In No. 1 doubles play, Westminster's Steve Hockstra and Eric Minor had downed Joe Molesworth and Dave Mullinix, 6-3, while in No. 2 boys doubles, Jeff Seaman and Brian Haines had grabbed a one-set lead over the Cavaliers' Greg Howard and Brad Hudson, 6-4.

The Owls' boys and girls teams remain at 4-1, while both South Carroll teams stay at 3-2. Westminster downed the Cavs in earlier matches on March 26, 5-0 in the boys match and 4-1 in the girls.

When play resumes, many eyes will be focused on Westminster's No. 1 girls player, Amanda Koenig, who placed second in the county last season, and on South Carroll's No. 1 girls doubles team of Nikki Robitaille and Amber Clutter. All three girls are favorites to win county and Central Maryland Conference titles this spring.

The Cavaliers' No. 3 boys doubles team of Kevin Treacy and Mike Pekala hope to keep up their winning ways. It delivered the decisive blow as South Carroll handed a tough North Carroll squad its only loss of the season last Wednesday.

The Owls boys suffered its only loss at the hands of the Panthers.

South Carroll's girls doubles squads consisting of Clutter-Robitaille, Holly Stevens-Kristin Weaver, and Emily Hegner-Melina Delahoz spearheaded a 3-2 come from behind win over the North Carroll girls squad last Wednesday.
