Broncos tennis takes on Desert

October 24, 2011

The Bishop Lady Broncos tennis squad hosted Desert for a rematch.
Desert won 10-8, with Bishop’s singles taking 5 wins and the doubles, 3.
Madi Taylor and Ashley Lee each won two of their three sets; Taylor 3-6, 6-3, 6-0; Lee 1-6, 5-1, 6-2.
Ricki Willey lost to Desert’s third and first seeds but won against the Scorpions number 2, 5-1.
In doubles action, Katie Tanksley and Karen Hinek won the only two sets, 6-3 and 6-1.
Hope McIndoo and Tara Gardner played through their sixth tie-breaker of the season but lost 6-7. Jenelle Rafferty and Kelli Pfeiler lost their doubles matches.
The day ended with an exciting match: a win for freshman Tessa Wright and sophomore Bronwyn Stephenson. The pair took on Desert’s third seed in a match-up that ended in a 7-6 tie-breaker in Bishop’s favor.
“Once they got over their nerves, they did great,” said coach Patty Cummings. “These two girls have great attitudes and will do well in the the next two and three years.”
The team is on the road to Kern Valley this Thursday. CIF Individuals will be held at Bishop, Nov. 3, starting at 9 a.m.
