Georgetown Eastview came to Lampasas Friday to play tennis and found, not only an opponent ready to play, but also a good crowd of Lampasas fans there to watch. In the words of Coach Kenneth Peiser, "It was a great night to watch some tennis. Cloud cover, cool winds and better tennis tonight."
The Badger team had a rough outing in its last match, but this time they were ready to play. Actually the play had a hiccup with a 30 minute rain delay at the start of the doubles matches. It didn't bother the Badger team as they came back out winning.
Carr/Carroll won their first match; Rash/Folks did the same, pulling out a close tie breaker; Claussen/Connell came from behind to win a tie breaker and Dwamena/Dunning had a straight set win. Cavalieri/McGuire did suffer a loss - their first one this year - in three sets.
Singles play was more of the same with 5 boys winning their matches and the girls winning 3 of theirs. Claussen, Dunning and Megan Dwamena deserved mentions here, along with Brian Munoz and first time varsity player Micah Belanger who won extra matches in singles and doubles.
The team is 3-1 so far and heading for Belton on Tuesday for a tough match with this much larger school. The 3-1 is looking pretty good for a team that has 10 out of 16 new players on its varsity team this year.
