Demon tennis routs Bruins

The Glenwood Springs girls tennis team dominated Cedaredge in Saturday’s dual, shutting out the Bruins 7-0 and not dropping a set.

Glenwood’s No. 1 singles player Celeste Cashel was the only Demon player or doubles team to drop four games in a set, but she rolled in the second set for a 6-1 victory over Michelle Sullivan.

Courtney McCallum cruised through at No. 2 with a 6-2, 6-0 win and Molly Axelson ensured the perfect day on the singles side with a 6-3, 6-3 sweep.

In doubles action, Tessie Tracey and Lisa Saathoff had no problem in their 6-1, 6-1 victory.

The Nos. 2 and 3 squads of Jackie Weast and Regina Waltsak and Maggie Tolan and Molly Ackerman gave up only one game in each of their matches, while the No. 4 duo of Rachel Zancanella and Caitlyn Fowler were victorious 6-2, 6-1.

Friday’s dual against Durango, however, was a different story.

The Demons fell 6-1, with McCallum picking up the only Demon victory of the day, 6-2, 6-4.
