Savannah Girls’ Tennis Handles Chillicothe Team

On Wednesday night at the Danner Park courts, the CHS Lady Hornets played MEC opponent Savannah High School where SHS led a dominant performance winning 7-2 over Chillicothe. Coach Chambers & Coach Pyrtle saw numerous stretches of high quality play from all levels of their team, but they were unable to close at several crucial moments that helped decide a handful of matches. The coaches saw lots of strengths to build upon but know their players also learned important early season lessons about clutch moments & mental fortitude that will help them later in post season play. Seniors Rylee Washburn & Isabella Garr also played incredibly high level tennis holding their own with two-time state medalist Iris Alvarez who dominates Class 1 play in northern Missouri year after year. Scores were as follows:
#1 Doubles — Rylee Washburn & Isabella Garr lost to Iris Alvarez & Kate Fischer 8-9 (tiebreak)
