YORK — The York girls’ tennis team dropped a dual to the Columbus Discoverers by the score of 7-2 on Monday afternoon at York High School.
“Columbus is a good team, but we need to be sharp mentally in these types of matches in order to compete,” said York head coach Josh Miller.
The lone singles win for the Dukes came at No. 6 from Hayley Nienhueser, who topped Shelby Brooks 8-5.
York’s other win was in doubles as the No. 2 team of Dana Grenfell and Sydney York defeated the Columbus duo of Brooks and Carley Foltz 8-5.
Columbus took singles matches at the one through five spots and won the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles matches.
“I liked how Liz (Harlow) and Hayley hit the ball and Sydney and Dana had a nice win at No. 2 doubles,” Miller commented.
In JV action, the Dukes edged Columbus 11-10 to finish the season undefeated for the second straight year.
Winning singles matches were Delaney Woods, Courtney Naber, Skyler Petersen, Courtney Wiemer, Adrienne Gocke, Clare Leif and Olivia Stafursky.
The doubles teams of Woods/Morgan Meyer, Petersen/Letitia Phan, Rebecca Quast/Kathryn Heng and Starfursky/Kaley Sandall were all victorious.
The Dukes close the regular season at the Waverly Invite on Thursday at 9 a.m., and one week from Thursday is the Class B State Meet at the Nebraska Tennis Center in Lincoln.
