Cardinal girls sweep Pella at home
The Newton girls tennis team squared off against its Little Hawkeye Conference rival Pella in Newton on Tuesday and came away with a clean sweep of the Dutch. Despite several contentious matches, the Cardinals only managed to drop two sets on the day, and those occurred in doubles play.
Representing the Cardinals in the top spot of the singles ladder was Katelyn Camp. Camp defeated Pella’s Morgan Ernst in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4. Jennifer Ventling had her first match this year in the No. 2 spot for the Cards, and she was able to win convincingly over Zoe Vermeer, 6-3, 6-0.
“Katelyn's serve was very effective today, as she won 80 percent of her first serve points. She combined that with five breaks of Ernst's serve to convincingly win,” coach Erick Zehr said. “Jennifer played her first match at No. 2 singles and played very well. She controlled the tempo of the points and attacked Vermeer's second serve to cruise in the second set.”
