Lady Rams Win 2nd Straight

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville tennis won their second straight match on Monday, edging out Springfield Southeast, 5-4, before dropping a match to Mt. Zion on Tuesday, 8-1.

"This is our second win in a row," said Ram coach Ryan Scott. "The girls are improving. Wow! What a close match in Springfield."

It was gut-check time for the Lady Rams, as the #2, #5, and #6 singles fought their way to victory and gave Shelbyville a chance to win in doubles.

Kayla Lee (#2) won the first set 6-4, but had to go to 8-6 to win the 2nd set. The Rams lost #1, #3, #4 singles and were in danger of being blown out.

Then Taylor Powers (#5) and Julia Bolinger (#6) dropped their first sets, then climbed their way through the next two sets two win going away.

Powers came back from a 4-6 lost in the 1st set to win the 2nd set 6-2, then won a 10-3 3rd set for the win. Bolinger mirrored Powers comeback. She also lost the 1st set 4-6, but came back strong, winning the 2nd set, 6-3, before launching a 10-5 finish in the 3rd set.

Powers and Bolinger gave Shelby the tie 3-3 at the end of singles.

In doubles, Mykennah Allen and her partner Alexis Halbrook, one of the reigning Athletes of the Week, crushed the Southeast #1s, 8-3. Lee and Powers came close, but couldn't repeat their singles magic. They dropped the #2 doubles match by the nlimmest of margins, 10-9.

That left it up to the # doubles team of Courtney Large and Kaitlyn Hopper with th ematch tied 4-4. Large and Hopper were dominant, taking the match 8-3 and giving Shelby their second straight win.
