The Chiefs did not win a set en route to a 5-0 loss to visiting Northwestern in a Central Buckeye Conference matchup.
“I don’t know what it was, but we just didn’t have it,” said Stein. “We didn’t get off to a good start in any of our matches and just could not get on track.”
Bellefontaine drops to 1-2 overall and 0-1 in the CBC.
The Warriors’ Chelsie Brandyberry took a 6-0, 6-0 win over Kenzie Collinsworth at first singles, Northwestern’s Chloe Dabrowski prevailed 6-1, 7-6 over Kiersten Daum at second singles and the Warriors’ Gracyn Leep won 6-4, 6-4 over Madeline Houser at third singles.
In doubles play, Ellen Snyder and Brittany Hart won 6-2, 6-4 over the Chiefs’ Hannah Vance and Kylee Jenkins at first doubles and Megan Wilson and Taylor Horner prevailed 6-3, 6-1 over Bellefontaine’s Hannah Weimer and Michelle Frantz at second doubles.
In reserve action, Bellefontaine’s Traysa Downing lost 6-1 in a singles match and Ashley Enderle and Brandy Cole were defeated 6-2 in doubles play.
