By on September 15, 2011

KANELAND—Was the loss of a week ago to IMSA a blessing in disguise for Kaneland High School tennis?

The Lady Knights were too busy rattling off three dual punchouts in a row to consider the question.

Monday featured KHS (7-2) knocking over Rosary for the first time in coach Tim Larsen’s tenure. The prior Thursday had KHS going to Rochelle and taking the day, while Sept. 7 had another sweep, this of LaSalle-Peru out on the Kaneland courts.

In the 5-2 win over the Royals, the three singles entries of Sammie Schrepferman, Jelly Emmanouil and Maddy McMullen won their matches, while the Amelia Napiorkowski/Madi Jurcenko (6-4, 7-5) and Madi Limbrick/Stephanie Rosenwinkel tandems took doubles matchups.

In the 5-0 sweep of the Lady Hubs, Schrepferman took a straight 6-0, 6-0 win, while Emmanouil took a 6-0, 6-1 win in the No. 2 singles clash.

Against the Lady Cavaliers, the singles matches went Kaneland’s way in the 5-0 sweep, while No. 2 doubles team Jenna Bicos and Jess Woodward pulled out a 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 win.
