Hillsboro No. 2 doubles tennis team takes 2nd at Sterling

The Hillsboro girls’ No. 2 doubles tennis team of Mary Leihy and Anna Glanzer went 3-1 in five-team round-robin play to take second Thursday in Sterling.

“Mary and Anna continue to play well together,” coach Bob Woelk said. “Their only loss (at the meet) was to Sterling, the top finisher.”

Leihy and Glanzer are 5-2 this season.

The Trojans’ No. 1 doubles team of Hanna Funk and Ellian Weisbeck placed third. Woelk said their lack of consistency hurt them.

“Ellian is a first-year player and the two are just learning to play together as a team,” he said.

Allison Gray showed promise in No. 1 singles play finishing in fourth place. Woelk said she played well against good players, some of whom were state qualifiers last year.

Woelk was also pleased with new player Shelby Johnson’s effort as she competed against veteran players.

The Trojans play next at 10 a.m. Thursday in Smoky Valley.
