Tennis falls to Northwest

The Missouri Western women’s tennis team has been having a rough season so far and things didn’t get any better for the girls this past Wednesday. The Griffons fell 9-0 to Northwest Missouri State in St. Joseph on April 24. “I think that you have to forget that they are as good as they are and just go out there and pretend that they are just another team,” Amber Adams said. But Northwest was sure to remind the Griffons of who they were in the first match. Kayla Daughtrey was beaten by Sureena Weir 6-0, 6-0. That pace continued for the Griffons the entire day and it seemed that Northwest was not going to take them lightly. Senior Dominique Leone was not able to break through Northwest’s Lisa Pendrak as she also went down 6-0, 6-0.

The rest of the Griffon team struggled as well. Nicole Kerr lost to Veronica Castilla 6-1, 6-0 and Alecia Jenkins lost to Brittany Browning 6-0, 6-1. Sarah Hatten was the last of the singles as she went down 6-1, 6-0. “Sarah has come out and is close to a winning record in conference, so I have been impressed with her,” coach Ron Selkirk said. The Griffons did not fare much better in doubles action, as seniors Amber Adams and Dominique Leone went down to Pendrak and Castilla 8-2. Daughtrey and Kerr lost to Weideman and Hoffman 8-1 and Hatten and Jenkins lost 8-0 to Weir and Browning. However, not all has been bad for the Griffons this year as they seem to have grown closer as a team. “We have grown a lot as a team,” Adams said. “Yeah, we may not have won many games on the court, but we’ve developed great relationships off the court.” The Griffons fell to 1-13 and 0-7 in the conference and Northwest improved to 15-6 and 7-0 in the MIAA.

  14. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
