MARQUETTE - Overcoming some breezy winds, the Marquette Senior High School girls tennis team bounced visiting Gwinn Thursday, 7-1.

Maddie Gardiner led the Redettes (6-2-1) at No. 1 singles by beating Lydia Asplund, 6-2, 6-4.

MSHS swept the doubles competition, with Danielle Nestor and Mackenzie Verbeke aiding the cause with a 6-0, 6-1 win over the Modeltowners' Anja Wiedenhofer and Nastja Nikulina at No. 3 doubles.

A bright spot for Gwinn came at No. 3 singles, where Alana Smith toppled Mallory Asano, 7-5, 6-5 (default).

Kingsford 7, Westwood 1

Swept in singles competition, the Westwood High School girls tennis team fell to visiting Kingsford Thursday, 7-1.

"We played well at times, but didn't get the results we were looking for," WHS head coach Chris Jackson said. "We're starting to see some of the things we're working on in practice transfer to matches."

At No. 1 singles, the Flivvers' Sam Fleming downed Sarah Massie, 7-5, 6-2.

At No. 1 doubles, the Kingsford tandem of Ana Shanks and Kaley Lamy stopped Kara Harrington and Alexis Forchini, 2-6, 6-3, 6-3.

Westwood's lone triumph came at No. 2 doubles, where Taryn Moyle and Katie Rankinen knocked off Janay Walters and Ali VanRemortel, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

Iron Mountain 8, Ishpeming 0

At Iron Mountain Thursday, Ishpeming fell to the Mountaineers, 8-0, in girls tennis action.

"Most of our people improved their scores from last week, which was nice," Hematites' head coach Erl Langness said.

He noted Libbie Doney and Hailly Thompson at No. 4 doubles dropped a close 6-7 (7-4), 6-2, 10-4 decision to I.M.'s Bugni twins, Kate and Emily.

Ishpeming's Jaime Olson also lost a close decision at No. 3 singles, 7-5, 0-6, 10-7 to the Mountaineers' Olivia Truscott.

"That's the second time this season Jaime has won more games than her opponent, but still lost the match," Langness noted.
