Glenwood girls tennis shuts out Basalt, 7-love

The Glenwood Springs High School girls tennis team had its best outing of the year so far, winning all seven singles and doubles matches in a duel with cross-district rival Basalt on Monday.

Playing at Crown Mountain Park in El Jebel, the closest match of the day came in No. 3 doubles, where the Demon duo of sophomore Ella Thornal and junior Zoey Worley scored the win on a 10-3 tiebreaker after dropping the first set 2-6 to the Longhorns’ team of senior Angelie Niebla and sophomore Emma Garrigus. The Glenwood team would win the second set 6-0 to set up the first-to-10 tiebreaker.

In another close one, Glenwood’s No. 2 doubles team of juniors Ella Tripp and Rilyn Goluba managed to fend off a tough Basalt duo of senior Lacey Lindberg and sophomore Harper Stone, 7-5, 6-3.

The Demons’ No. 1 single, senior Siri Henderson, won her match on a walkover (forfeit), and in the No. 2 singles match, junior Tess Goscha defeated Basalt senior Ella Lahey 6-1, 6-0. In the No. 3 singles match, Glenwood sophomore Amanda Madden defeated Basalt junior Georgia Searles 6-0, 6-0.

Also cruising to match wins were the No. 1 doubles team of freshman Grace Simms and junior Amanda Dehm, who defeated the Basalt duo of senior Frida Rojo and senior Kimberly Sosa, 6-2, 6-0; and the No. 4 doubles team of sophomore Rose Corcoran and junior Sera Dehm, who won 6-0, 6-0 over Basalt freshmen Karen Gonzalez Machuca and Jamie Rivas.
