Tennis teams go 3-for-4

Marion County tennis teams picked up three more wins on Monday.

East Fairmont won both its boys’ and girls’ matches against Liberty and Fairmont Senior picked up a win from its boys’ team against Grafton.

In the East Fairmont boys’ match, Michael Moore and Zack Henline picked up singles victories.

The Bees’ No. 2 doubles team of Moore and Jordan Leonard also earned a victory. And the No. 3 doubles team of Isaac and Evan Flohr remain undefeated on the young season after they too picked up a win to help the Bees to a 4-3 overall win.

On the girls side, Cara Laswell came from behind to win her No. 2 singles match. Erica Gorman and Carrington Reese remain undefeated in No. 3 and No. 4 singles, respectively.

East Fairmont’s No. 2 and No. 3 doubles teams also remained perfect.

The No. 3 team of Ashley Grace and Marcie Corder actually beat  Liberty’s No. 2 team, because the Mountaineers unintentionally sent the wrong team to play the Bees.

The No. 2 team of Gorman and Brittiany Brumage also earned a win, though in a more conventional way, to remain unbeaten.

Overall, East Fairmont coach Rodney Anselene was pleased with the progress his team has made.

“We made some strides in singles today. I saw some kids being more consistent,” he said.

The Polar Bears, meanwhile, picked up a 4-3 win from its boys team. The girls team fell by the same score.

Fairmont Senior’s No. 2 Blake Hoke, No. 3 Taylor Campbell and No. 4 Trey Giorcelli all earned singles victories.

The doubles team of Cody Brubaker and Isaac Cutright also picked up a forfeit victory in doubles to secure the victory.

On the girls’ side, No. 3 Morgan Hoke and No. 4 Avery Towns picked up wins.

Fairmont Senior coach Mark Giorcelli said he was especially pleased with Towns’ performance.

“I enjoy working with her, because she’s very brave. She fears nothing. I love that attitude,” he said.

And in doubles, Eviana Barnes and Megan Stephenson earned an 8-4 victory.

The Polar Bears travel to Elkins today.
