HIGH SCHOOL

Girls Tennis

Fairborn 3, West Carrollton 2

The Fairborn girls high school tennis team got back to action after a long break and needed their singles trio of Brooklyn Hunter, Acadia Wulf and Kyla Secrest all to bring their ‘A’ games as both doubles teams struggled mightily. Fortunately the singles players cruised to relatively easy wins and led the Skyhawks to their first Greater Western Ohio Conference, South Division win of the season in defeating West Carollton 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Dakota Thacker, who missed some action last week due to illness, moved up to play first doubles with Shayna Osborne, who had also missed a match. The duo struggled in a 1-6 first set loss before getting it together in the second set. Unfortunately they faltered at the end and fell 5-7 in the second set to drop their match.

At second doubles, Megan Koonce teamed up with senior Isa Smith. The pair jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first set before West Carollton came roaring back. The Skyhawks dropped the first set 3-6, then lost the second set 0-6.

Fortunately as much as the doubles struggled, the singles players controlled their matches from the very outset.

Brooklyn Hunter cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 win at #1 singles. Acadia Wulf had to work a little harder, but came out on top 6-3, 6-2 at the #2 spot.

Sealing the win for Fairborn was Kyla Secrest who rolled to a 6-2 and 6-0 win.

The win puts the Lady Skyhawks back above .500 on the season at 6-5. They earn their first GWOC South win to go with 2 losses.

NORTH LEWISBURG — Gabrielle Tobe had 11 kills, 11 digs and two aces, Caitlin Sweat had nine kills and a trio of aces, Valery Nix had 32 digs and two aces and Bryce Ratliff came up with 20 assists, but Triad rallied to a 24-26, 26-24, 25-18, 25-17 win Tuesday night. Greeneview fell to 1-6 overall, 0-3 in the Ohio Heritage Conference with the loss.COLLEGE

Pyle named Defensive Player of the Week

FAIRBORN — Senior goalkeeper Halle Pyle of the Wright State women’s soccer team has been selected as the Horizon League Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending Sept. 7, it was announced Tuesday by the league office.

Pyle (Centerville) recorded her first shutout of the season and fifth of her career Sunday night as the Raiders posted a 1-0 road victory over crosstown rival Dayton at Baujan Field. Despite the Flyers attempting 27 shots, including six on goal, Pyle preserved the shutout and had four saves.

It was the first win for WSU in the series since defeating the Flyers 1-0 at Baujan Field on September 25, 1996, ending a 12-match streak where Dayton had won 10 times with two ties.

For the season, Pyle has a 3-1 record, a 1.00 goals against average and 15 saves.

Wright State (3-2) next hits the road against Toledo at 1 p.m. Sunday.
