TC, Shelbyville advance to tennis sectional championship match

Triton Central rolled past Morristown and Shelbyville won all three singles matches to dispatch of Waldron to set up the Shelbyville Tennis Sectional championship match.


The Tigers improved to 15-0 this season with a 5-0 win over the Yellow Jackets Thursday at Shelbyville High School.


Brooklyn Schiffli (No. 1 singles), Julia Sanders (No. 2 singles) and Emma Hutchinson and Alyssa Wheatley (No. 2 doubles) did not lose a game in sweeping their opponents, 6-0, 6-0.


Schiffli defeated Emma Theobald while Sanders bested Beth Hodgin.


Hutchinson and Wheatley topped Briana Batton and McKinley Kile.


At No. 1 doubles, Ainsley Denton and Kelsey McGuire defeated Morristown’s Ryeland Brewer and Sarah Essex, 6-1, 6-0.


The only contested match came at No. 3 singles where Lelia Chougule overcame Aubrea Trattner, 6-2, 1-6, 10-2.


Shelbyville collected singles victories from Gabrielle Knox and Jaiden Tackett at No. 1 singles and No. 2 singles, respectively. Waldron did not have a No. 3 singles representative which gave the Golden Bears a forfeit victory and enough match wins to reach the sectional championship.


At No. 1 doubles, Waldron’s Megan Bogemann and Mackenzie Shaw (photo) defeated Shelbyville’s Emma Sandman and Adeline Haacker, 7-5, 6-1, to advance into next week’s doubles sectional tournament at Center Grove High School.


Waldron’s Amanda Brinson and Josee Larrison won at No. 2 doubles, 6-7 (3), 7-5, 10-4.
