No denying Cyclones tennis team its success
Neither Mother Nature nor Waubonsee College was any match for Moraine Valley College last Wednesday.
The former threatened to wash out a scheduled Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference tennis encounter between the Cyclones and Chiefs by unleashing torrential rains and lightning upon the Sugar Grove area. The inclement conditions did cause a 30-minute delay, but Moraine weathered the interruption just fine.
Much to Waubonsee players’ chagrin, their Cyclones counterparts quickly regained their groove and rolled to a 6-3 win. Half of the 18 sets Moraine captured were by 6-0 scores.
Singles players Alexa Armon (No. 3), Claudia Maki (No. 4), Lindsey Walker (No. 5) and Tricia Poremba (No. 6) all posted at least one 6-0 triumph, and three of the four also excelled in doubles play. Walker and Poremba did so by partnering with one another at second-doubles, while Maka teamed with Kelley Grzych to form the No. 3 duo.
