Cazenovia girls tennis beats Chittenango

Lakers also top Marcellus, stay in league title race

One more time, the Cazenovia and Chittenango girls tennis teams got together on Friday afternoon, and it proved to be a command performance for the Lakers, who shut out the Bears 7-0.

Elizabeth Palmer got it started for Cazenovia, topping Samantha Bliss 6-0, 6-0. Elsewhere in singles, Taylor Mimms handled Angela Burghardt 6-2, 6-2, with Kelly Furlong managing a 6-1, 6-1 sweep of Courtney Wilson.

Moving to doubles, Claire Chanatry and Ava Gurney needed a second-set tie-breaker, but still beat Abbey Cyr and Brianna Koegel 6-1, 7-6 (7-5). Edie Connor and Sally Langan matched Mimms with a 6-2, 6-2 conquest of Mackenzie Hall and Marie Perriello.

The Lakers’ tandem of Grace Gara and Sienna Lints got past Jessica Hogan and Ashley Jackowski 6-2, 6-3, just as Rebecca Marsch and Natalie Roszel worked to a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Mackenzie Millick and Noelle Milnamow 6-1, 6-4.

In the heated race atop the OHSL Liberty division, the Lakers took a large step toward reaching the top in last Monday’s 5-2 victory over Marcellus.

It helped that the Lakers swept all three singles matches against the Mustangs. Lints had the closest call, needing three sets to get past Holly Grosholz 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, but Furlong rolled past Audrey Cerrone 6-1, 6-2 as Palmer gained a 6-2, 6-2 decision over Haley Randall. Moving to doubles, Gurney and Roszel earned a crucial point, defeating Tierney Clark and Ricky Maxon 6-4, 7-5.

Chittenango’s narrow 4-3 decision over Cortland on Thursday involved single-set matches to 10 games, and the Bears went 3-1 in doubles to pull it out.

Bliss and Hall beat Iva Markicevic 10-6, while Hogan and Jackowski pulled out a 10-8 decision over Anna Millar and Jennifer Wang. Burghardt and Malloy got past Marissa DeFranco and Caitlin Little 10-6 as, in singles, Perriello gained a 10-5 victory over Devon Tennant.
