Apr. 15—CHARLESTOWN — Host Charlestown swept the singles matches en route to a 3-2 victory over visiting Clarksville in a Mid-Southern Conference match Wednesday.
Senior Skylar Cochran led the way for the Pirates, winning 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 singles. Also for Charlestown, Maci Vaughn triumphed 6-0, 6-4 at No. 2 and Amanda Upton won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 3.
In doubles, Skylar King and Aaliyah Taylor won 6-4, 6-2 at No. 1. At No. 2 doubles, Summer Neal and Emily Kaiser rallied to outlast Kassi Propes and Leah Walden 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.
“We lost a close match to Charlestown, but our doubles played well,” Clarksville coach Stephen Welcher said. “Both doubles teams fought hard, got better since the last match and were very aggressive. Our No. 1 doubles of Skylar King and Aaliyah Taylor came out aggressive and won in straight sets. The No. 2 doubles of Emily Kaiser and Summer Neal started slowly but never gave up. They got better as they won a hard-fought, three-setter. I’m excited for the next three days of practice to continue improving.”
