Lady Knights tennis (1-3) got back on track with a win against Minooka on Thursday by a 5-2 dual score, but fell to IMSA (5-2) the following Tuesday.

“Our first win of the year … what I like about our team is that our girls at every position came off the courts with ideas of what shots are working for them, and what we need to work on in practice,” KHS coach Tim Larsen said about the action against Minooka.

In singles action, No. 1 entry Lindsay Jurcenko took care of Michelle Dominik by a 6-1, 6-1 tally. In the No. 2 singles matchup, Amelia Napiorkowski defeated Sarah Crowley, 6-0, 6-1.

Liz Webb/Olivia Emmanouil took care of Taylor Hartman/Sara Tredennick in the No. 1 clash by a 6-2, 6-4 margin.

No. 2 doubles tandem Randi Bader/Kelsey Lenhardt went the distance and won over Taylor and Tori Anians by a 7-5, 5-7, 7-4 result.

No. 3 doubles team Tessa Kuipers/Mel Mazuc won out over Paige Sandal/Chanteil Vlatowski 6-4,6-0.

Against the Titans in Aurora, Jurcenko’s 6-2, 6-0 win and Napiorkowski’s 6-0, 6-1 victory went in the Lady Knight’s favor.
