TECUMSEH — The North Daviess tennis team defeated Tecumseh on Saturday

At No. 1, Max Toy was a 4 and 4 winner, Blake Huff won in three at No. 2, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 and Rex Freed won 1 and 1.

In JV, wins came from Nate Ressler, Collin Lengacher and Braylin Pridemore, along with Grady Callison and Will Murrie all had multiple wins.

"The Cougars take down the previously undefeated Tecumseh Braves 4-1. Freed and two doubles (Loheider/Graber) had little trouble knocking off their opponents. Toy and Huff had to work a little harder at one and two singles, but both came away victorious. The match of the day was at No.1 doubles where Sassano and Aiden Pridemore weren't quite able to come away with the victory in a hard fought tough three set bout with Montilla and Oxley. The match was a huge building point for the season as there are only two weeks remaining in regular season. Likewise the Cougars JV took care of business as Resler knocked off two Brave opponents as well as Murrie and Callison at two JV doubles. The other JV victories were from Lengacher and Braylin Pridemore in singles action.

Lady Hatchets shutout NP

The Washington Lady Hatchets soccer team posted a 3-0 win over North Posey on Saturday at the Sports Complex.

Hatchet goals came from Alison Hill, Ava Babrick and Cassie Dillon.

"We held possession of the ball 90 percent of the game today. We came out hard and stayed consistent playing calm and controlled our movement to the ball and continuous passing was strong. We controlled the middle of the field today with three key players, Alison Hill, Lexi Nalin, and Ayla Owens. Our back line consisting of Strange, Johnson, Cox, and Hayleigh in goal definitely communicated well to keep feeding it forward. Several players rotated as strikers and wing mids and stepped to ball consistent. Very proud of the effort today," said WHS coach Madi Lee. Lions take tourney
