Knights fight off Chiefs in CBC tennis matchup


Bellefontaine’s girls tennis team showed improvement Thursday, but suffered its third straight loss.

Visiting Greenon went home with a 5-0 victory following a Central Buckeye Conference matchup.

Greenon is now 2-1, while Bellefontaine drops to 0-3.

Kiersten Daum put up a good battle at first singles. She won the first set 7-6 over Shelby Marshall. Marshall then won the second set 7-5 and clinched the match with a 6-0 win in set three.

“I was so pleased with the effort Kiersten showed tonight,” said BHS head coach James Howell. “The senior captain played with determination, allowing her to grind out points and create scoring opportunities.”

Greenon’s Megan Reed prevailed 6-3, 6-4 over Kenzie Collinsworth at second singles and the Knights’ Shawn McMahn won 6-0, 6-0 over Hannah Weimer at third singles.

Bellefontaine’s first doubles team of Hannah Vance and Traysa Downing lost 6-3, 6-1 to Marissa Brown and Kirsten Diviak.

Greenon won the second doubles match by forfeit.

Bellefontaine is back in action Saturday in the CBC preseason tournament in Huber Heights.
