BROOKINGS – The Aberdeen Central girls’ tennis team swept through a trio of opponents Friday at the Brookings Jamboree. The Golden Eagles began the day with a 9-0 sweep of the host Bobcats, then earned a pair of 6-3 wins over Harrisburg and Yankton to cap the day.
Central coach John Vogel noted different players stepped up in different matches throughout the day.
Laney Gonsor highlighted the Golden Eagles’ opening win over Brookings, claiming a 10-5 win over Anika Hooda at No. 3 singles. That match marked the closest contest of the entire dual.
“Laney played well against a tough opponent,” Vogel said.
Against Harrisburg, it was Livia Douglas who pulled off a 10-8 thriller at No. 4 singles, defeating Maddie Von Wald in a marathon match.
“Livia Douglas played some fantastic, mentally tough points at the end of her singles match,” Vogel said. “It was good to see her playing so confidently.”
Vogel also pointed out the strength of the Tigers in the lower flights, something Yankton was able to reverse in Central’s third match of the day.
The Gazelles won the top two singles flights and No. 1 doubles, while the Golden Eagles were victorious in the lower flights.
“Avery Tennant (No. 2 singles) played very well in that loss,” Vogel said.
Central did catch a bit of a break, as Yankton’s third-flight singles player fell ill earlier in the day and was unable to play either her singles or doubles matches against the Golden Eagles, who won those flights by default.
“Laney Gonsor appreciated the break,” Vogel quipped.
Central will face Huron and Watertown today at the Jamboree.
