The Lawrence High girls tennis team won two of three matches at its home quad on Monday.

The Lions defeated both Topeka West and Topeka High, 3-1, while dropping a 4-0 decision to Washburn Rural.

“We’re striving to get better,” LHS coach Chris Marshall said. “As long as we’re doing that, I’m happy.”

Against Topeka West, LHS No. 2 singles player Zoe Schneider (8-0) came up with a victory, along with the No. 1 doubles team of Taylor Eubanks-Abby Gillam (8-2) and the No. 2 doubles team of Haley Ryan-Katie Gaches (8-7, 7-3).

No. 1 singles player Chloe Clement (8-4) posted a win against Topeka High, along with Schneider (6-1) at No. 2 singles and Eubanks-Gillam (8-7, 7-3) at No. 1 doubles.

“We could have played better,” Marshall said, “but we held together and fought, and the girls won some close matches against them.”

LHS will travel to a Topeka High tournament on Wednesday.
