Lynx girls come up short vs. Nevada on the road

NEVADA — The Webster City girls tennis team dropped a tough 8-1 decision to Nevada here Tuesday night.

Kinzey Koestner picked up the lone victory, winning at No. 2 singles, 8-6.

Four of the matches, though, were decided by three games or less, including a pair of two-game setbacks for Webster City at No. 6 singles from Morgan Hackbarth and No. 3 doubles from Hackbarth and Hailey Brim.

Allie Severe, playing No. 1, fell 8-5 to Megan McGaffin.

“The team score looks lopsided, but it was much closer than that,” WCHS head coach Mark Fisher said. “There were a lot of great matches with a lot of great points. This is a very experienced and solid Nevada team, and I thought our girls played right with them.

“I thought we even outplayed them in many areas…we just couldn’t get that one last shot to finish a rally off, or had just too many self-inflicted errors.”

Severe and Alivia Burns fell at No. 2 doubles, 8-5, while Cyra Christensen, Burns and Gabbie Sebert all dropped 8-4 decisions in singles.

Next up for the Lynx will be their regular season finale at Ballard on Thursday.

The Webster City boys fell to Aplington-Parkersburg, 9-0, as Tyler Vasquez was the lone player to win games in singles. The Lynx face Nevada on Thursday and Clear Lake on Friday.
