Area prep roundup: Lady Indians still perfect on tennis court

Murray County High School’s girls tennis team dropped just two games while rolling to a 5-0 win over Dade County on Wednesday in Chatsworth.

The Lady Indians remained undefeated through five matches and also opened their Region 7-2A schedule with a win in the process.

Singles winners were No. 1 Greta Lazzarotto, 6-0, 6-2, No. 2 Gabbie Bordelon, 6-0, 6-0, and No. 3 Allison Jones, 6-0, 6-0. Doubles winners were No. 1 Chloe Brown and Kailey Webb, 6-0, 6-0, and No. 2 Emily Myers and Alyssa Jones, 6-0, 6-0.

Dade County boys 4, Murray County 1: The No. 1 doubles team of Carlos Gutierrez and Tristan Moore, who won 6-2, 6-7 (0-1), (10-8), generated the lone victory for the Indians (1-4, 0-1 Region 7-2A) in the home loss.

Dalton boys 7, Chattanooga Christian 2: The Catamounts (6-2) swept singles and won a doubles match as they rolled at Lakeshore Park in Dalton.

Singles winners for Dalton were No. 1 Jacob Johnson, 6-4, 6-2, No. 2 Shazman Ali, 6-2, 6-0, No. 3 Nathan Bryant, 7-5, 6-2, No. 4 Ryan Harper, 6-3, 6-2, No. 5 Will Alderman, 6-1, 6-0, and No. 6 Josh McCraven, 6-1, 6-3. In doubles, Alderman and Harper won 6-3, 3-6, (10-5) on the No. 1 court.

Chattanooga Christian girls 7, Dalton 2: The Lady Cats (5-3) got singles wins from No. 2 Anna Grace Wilson, 6-1, 6-4, and No. 4 Sydney Tankersley, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3, as they fell at Lakeshore Park in Dalton.


Mount Juliet (Tenn.) 15, Northwest Whitfield 9: The Bruins suffered their first loss in four games to start the season, dropping a marathon on the opening day of the Scenic City Classic.

The game, which was held at Chattanooga’s McCallie School, went 10 innings — three more than regulation — and lasted more than 3 1/2 hours.

Northwest, designated the home team, led 4-2 after four innings but Mount Juliet put together a five-run fifth to chase Bruins starter Logan Hilton and go ahead 7-4. The Bruins scored a run in the bottom half of the inning and added two more in the sixth to tie the game, and each team scored a run in the eighth and ninth to make it 9-9 going into the 10th.

Northwest was unable to answer a six-run statement by Mount Juliet in the final inning, with the Bruins going down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 10th.

Bruins coach Todd Middleton said the upside of the loss was the chance for players to see several different situations they hadn’t encountered before.

“Both teams the hit the ball,” Middleton said. “There were a lot of sloppy plays. We had so many chances to win it. ... It was not a good way to finish it, but it was a good experience overall.”

Will Brock’s 4-for-6 effort led the Bruins at the plate, while Edwin Hernandez was 3-for-6 with a double and an RBI, Diego Peralta was 3-for-6, Caleb Shiflett was 2-for-6 with four RBIs, Seth Pierce was 2-for-6 with a solo home run and Walker Maret was 2-for-6.

Hilton lasted 4 1/3 innings before giving way to Pierce, who worked 2 2/3 innings in relief, as did Andy Whisenant. The Bruins allowed eight earned runs, while Mount Juliet allowed seven.


Southeast Whitfield boys 194, Murray County 235: Southeast’s Trey Terry shot an 11-over-par 47 in windy conditions on the front nine at Indian Trace Golf Course in Chatsworth to lead the Raiders to a season-opening dual victory.

The Raiders’ other counting rounds came from Matt Cleary (48), Eric Sosebee (49) and Cole Shirah (50).

Individual scores for the host Indians were not reported by The Daily Citizen’s deadline.
