Girls' tennis defeat Division III opponent

Despite two starters sidelined, the girls’ tennis team remained determined to defeat Yosemite High School, Division III, 9-0, in a preseason scrimmage. Although Mary Kneefel will return for the upcoming match, Amanda Sherr’s ankle is still under wraps.

Winning points in singles: Jaclyn Blackwell, 8-0; Kara Linkowski, 8-0; Brittany Shaffer, 8-0; Kristina Palmer, 8-5; Janae Bramlett, 8-2; Tonia Bramlett, 8-2. In doubles Blackwell/Linkowski won 8-1 and Shaffer/Palmer won 8-1. The Badgers needed to forfeit third doubles due to an incomplete team.

The Eagles will next play at Immanuel High on Sept. 5. Current preseason record: 2-0.

Tennis will also play in the Wawona Peach Tree Tennis Classic; their first match will be on Sept. 8 against Sunnyside High School.

Despite losing three starters to their Valley Champion team, including No. 1, Ashley Sherr and No. 2, Jenny Beckman, the girls’ tennis team defeated Madera High School, 7-2, in a friendly scrimmage. Madera, a Division I team, could not compete with an Eagle squad that kept sharp taking summer lessons.

Winning points in singles for the Eagles were: Jaclyn Blackwell, 7-6 (9-7), 3-6, (10-2); Kara Linkowski, 6-4, 6-1; Brittney Shaffer, 6-0, 6-3; Kristina Palmer, 6-4, 6-3; and Janae Bramlett, 6-3, 7-5. In doubles Blackwell and Linkowski won 8-1 and Tonia Bramlett/Jennifer Sherfield won 8-3. The girls next scrimmage at home against Yosemite High on Aug. 25.

Jenior Jenny Beckman graduated early in May and senior Ashley Sherr is now playing for Fresno Pacific University’s women’s soccer team.
