Circleville Girls Tennis Beat Hillsborough In A Nail Biting Match!

The girls’ tennis team from Circleville High School went to Hillsboro High School on Monday, and the Lady Tigers defeated the Indians 4-1.

Senior Gracie Riddick, who played first singles, won her sets 6-3, 6-7 (3-7), and 6-1.

Coach Clint Marcum of the Lady Tigers remarked, “Gracie played a well-balanced match and came out on top in three hard-fought sets.” “She worked the ball around the court nicely and hit a few aces serves.”

Kaylah Huggins, a sophomore, won the second singles match with set scores of 5-7, 7-6, (7-3), and 2-6.

“Kaylah played extremely well and was aggressive throughout the match with her groundstrokes and service game,” said Marcum. She had a wonderful match and hopes to build on her newfound confidence.

Senior Sydney Huffer won the third singles match with 6-4 and 6-1 set scores.

Sydney is participating in tennis for the first time and has advanced significantly in the first two weeks of the season, according to Marcum. “She really covered the court well and answered nearly everything that was directed at her. She keeps getting better every day.

Senior Carley Hinton and junior Madison Jarrell won the first doubles match with set scores of 6-1 and 6-0. Marcum praised the dynamic pair of Hinton-Jarrell highly.

Carley and Madison won in straight sets, conceding just one game, “continuing their excellent doubles play,” he said. They work well together and their playing styles are quite complementary. Any opponent will find them difficult to deal with.

Seniors Alexis Bachman and Lillianna Stafford finished second doubles with set scores of 6-0 and 6-4.

It was evident in the match that Alexis and Lillianna had a lot of experience, according to Marcum. When the second set became too tight, they found another gear and communicated very well. Excellent work from my two seniors.

The Lady Tigers’ next opponent was Bloom-Carroll High School, and they lost a tough road game 1-4.

Gracie Riddick played first singles, Kaylah Huggins played second singles, and Sydney Huffer played third singles. Carley Hinton and Madison Jarrell played first doubles, and Alexis Bachman and Lillianna Stafford played second doubles.

Madison and Carley prevailed in both sets, 7-5 and 6-2.

After trailing for most of the match, “our first doubles dug deep to squeeze out a tight first set,” he remarked. Then, into the second set, [they] carried the momentum to win our only match of the evening.

Following the game, Marcum stated that the team, currently down 2-1, is learning and improving with each serve over the net.

We were able to gauge how well we compare to a prestigious program like Bloom-Carroll through this experience, he added. We’ll refocus, resume our work, and resume our efforts on Thursday when we host Chillicothe High School.

The doubles pair fought fiercely and determinedly, according to Marcum’s account of Carley-Madison, which was necessary to win the match.
