Duncan tennis takes first, sweeps competition

DUNCAN — Following the lead of their varsity counterparts, the boys and girls junior varsity Duncan Demons tennis teams made the most of the Duncan Junior Varsity Tennis Tournament Tuesday.

Both the Demons and Lady Demons took care of business, winning their tournaments with 3-0 records.

“It’s good for the young kids to get out and play,” Demons coach Phil Barnes said. “It’s a chance for them to play someone besides themselves in practice. They got to feel the pressure of competing in a match and I think they responded really well.”

Demons

From start to finish, Duncan stayed in control, sweeping matches against Chickasha, Deer Creek and Atlus.

Cameron McCasland led the way in singles, beating Noel Avila of Chickasha 6-2, 6-4, Deer Creek’s Doris 6-2, 6-7, 7-6 and Paulino Ortiz from Atlus 6-0, 6-2.

It was more of the same for Hayden Pettigrew, who finished his day in No. 2 singles with a 6-0, 6-1 victory against Atlus’ Ricardo Hernandez.

Each doubles team kept the winning for Duncan going. The Demons’ Jones and Barton duo swept their No. 1 matches, beating Chickasha’s Charlson and Woodard 6-4, 6-1, Deer Creek’s team 7-5, 6-1 and finishing the day with a 6-2, 6-3 win against Atlus’ Torres and Buddenhagen.

 In No.2 doubles, Sean Brady and Roger Pipkin won their match aainst Chickasha’s Hillbolt and Ho 6-4, 6-2. Jackson Moffatt then took over for Brady and he and Pipkin swept the final two matches with a 6-0, 6-1 win against Deer Creek and a 6-1, 6-2 victory against Atlus’ Carson/Sanders pairing.

Lady Demons

Not to be outdone, Duncan also took first with a 3-0 record.

In No. 1 singles, Carly Kirland won all three of her matches, beating out Chickasha’s Outhaithouy 6-0, 6-1, Deer Creek’s Taylor Holland 6-0, 6-0 and Atlus’ Kelli Doyle 6-0, 6-0.

The duo of Aubrey Mouser and Jordan Clausson dropped just one set all day. They started the day with a 6-0, 6-0 defeat of Chickasha’s Madlonado/Reyes team, continued on with a 6-0, 6-0 Le/King pairing and finished with a 6-0, 6-1 victory against Atlus’ Warington/Warington team.

Abby Brady and Peyton Bower carried the torch with three wins of their own in No. 2 doubles play. Brady and Bower first defeated Chickasha’s Fletcher/Medina pairing 6-0, 6-0, won their match against Deer Creek’s Shah and Asisolaiya 6-1, 6-1 and concluded with a 6-1, 6-2 victory against Atlus’ Maahs/Wolduford group 6-1, 6-2.
