PUEBLO – On an opening day of the Class 4A State Tennis Tournament that included weather stoppages and action stretching well into the night, the Glenwood Springs girls tennis team had a solid showing.



Two of the three Demon qualifiers advanced to the quarterfinal round with wins on Thursday.

No. 3 singles player Molly Axelson won an epic bout against Colorado Academy’s Hillary Procknow. Axelson took the first set 6-3, but Procknow evened the contest with a 6-4 win in the second set. The third set went to a tiebreaker with Axelson coming out on top 7-6 (3). Axelson takes on Mary Lauren Crosswell of Mullen – who won her match 6-4, 6-3 against Pine Creek’s Jene Pledger – in the quarterfinals.

In No. 2 doubles, Glenwood’s duo of Jackie Weast and Regina Waltsak cruised to a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Magan Baca and Casie Arrellano of Pueblo Central. The Demon pair faces Lewis-Palmer’s Kate Ormsbee and Kelsie Hiester in the quarterfinals.

The Demons’ only loss of the day came in No. 2 singles. Cayley Wetzig of Cheyenne Mountain ended Courtney McCallum’s season with a 6-0, 6-1 victory.

The tournament continues today and Saturday with losers from the quarterfinal and semifinal matches dropping into the playback bracket. The championships are slated for Saturday.
