A beautiful spring day didn’t translate into good fortune on the court for the Warren County High School tennis team on Monday.

An unforgiving squad from Wilson Central made the trip to McMinnville and put a lid on some of the sunshine. Wilson Central didn’t allow the Pioneers or Lady Pioneers to win a single set.

Both Warren County teams lost, 9-0.

Pioneer players managed to win a few games. No. 1 seed Alessandro Prando lost his set to Nick Mercante, 8-2.

WCHS No. 3 player Colin Riley lost his set to Sean Brown, 8-2. They were the only two boys to win more than one game during their sets.

In girls action, Lady Pioneer Elizabeth Templos came close to winning. Playing in No. 4 singles, Templos suffered a narrow loss to Kendra Clayton, 8-6.

In No. 2 doubles, the team of Templos and Caroline Stewart jumped out to a 3-1 lead as Stewart hit an eye-opening, cross-court shot to win Game 1. But Wilson Central used powerful serving to storm back and win the set, 8-3.

In No. 3 doubles, the WCHS combo of Kali Foster and Karigan Stewart showed some spunk and managed to win 3 games during an 8-3 loss to Faith Jones and Francesca McDaniel.
