Prep roundup for Wednesday, May 22

May 22—Kokomo's girls tennis season ended Tuesday in the opening round of the Kokomo Regional when No. 8 Harrison topped the Wildkats 4-1.

Ellen Callane picked up Kokomo's point when she won the No. 2 singles match 6-4, 6-4. In other matches for the Kats, Raigan Heflin fell 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 singles, Claire Callane lost 6-1, 6-0 at No. 3 singles, Avi Pollard and Mia Federspill lost 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 doubles, and Helen Qiu and Allie Cothern fell 6-2, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles.

"All of the ladies played really well," Kokomo coach Sarah Hemmerich said. "Since we had faced them twice before I was kind of afraid we might play scared, and we did not do that at all. We came out and went at them. A lot of points had a lot of rallies that went a lot of shots, so we were able to extend points where maybe earlier in the season we were not able. We went to deuce a lot, which is a great place to be. Just Harrison is at a different level than we are right now."

The Kats finish their season 18-5 with three of their losses coming to the Raiders. Ellen Callane, Federspill, Cothern and Qui are seniors.

"I'm really proud of these girls," Hemmerich said. "We've made a lot of progress over the last couple of years and we don't have anything to hang our heads about. 18-5 is a great record to end on. I wish it hadn't ended [Tuesday] night, but it's going to be a season to remember."
