Comet netters defeat Spartans, 7-2
Press Staff Report
CHARLES CITY — They call them “pro sets” but some refer to them as “Kramer sets” in honor of the late International Tennis Hall of Famer Jack Kramer, who used to promote tennis while barnstorming across the globe playing single-set matches.
For Charles City’s home girls tennis match against Grundy Center, they played pro sets up to eight games, and the Comets won seven of those sets and matches.
In singles, Charles City went 5-1 with No. 1 Jodie Sindlinger defeating Lelsie Homeister (8-5), No. 2 Amy Boggess defeating Reegen Zinkula (8-0), No. 4 Taylor Walters defeating Erika Johnson (8-4), No. 5 Lauren Connell defeating Whitney Laube (8-1) and No. 6 Jacie Wink defeating Alivia Brandhorst (8-4).
Spartan No. 3 singles player Emerson Kracht defeated Comet sophomore Kayla Kellogg (8-4).
In doubles competition, the Charles City No. 1 team of Sindlinger and Boggess defeated Homeister and Zinkula (8-3); and the Comet No. 3 pair of Connell and Wink defeated Laube and Brandhorst (8-2).
Kracht and Johnson defeated Kellogg and Walters (8-4) in No. 2 doubles.
In anticipation of several make-up meets, the Comets are due to have a busy week and then some.
In addition to playing Hampton-Dumont in the first round of the Class 1A regionals at Waverly on Saturday, the Comets are set to host Dike-New Hartford on Thursday, Osage on Friday and Clear Lake next Monday (May 13).
