Grafton High School’s tennis team managed to score two points in the difficult North Shore Conference Tennis Tournament last week at Cedarburg and Homestead.

Taylor Wenten at No. 2 singles went 3-1  and won the consolation title.

Wenten beat Port Washington’s Cassidy Yuhas, 6-2, 6-1, before losing to Homestead’s Jamie Gebhardt, 6-3, 6-1.

Wenten then beat Nicolet’s Kephely Igoni, 6-1, 6-2; and beat West Bend West’s Makayla Schlass, 7-6 (2), 6-1.

“She played very smart. She really employed some great strategy against the West Bend girl in the finals who she had lost to earlier in a duel,” coach John Kangas said.

Grafton had other entries advance to the second day: Sierra Loughlin at No. 3 singles beat Oliva Hartner of West Bend East, 6-3, 7-5; Kate Aleknavicius at No. 4 singles got a bye; and the No. 3 doubles team of Hunter Bault and Andrea Vanderloop beat West Bend East’s Sabrian Blommel and Desirea Wollner, 6-3, 6-1.

Homestead won the meet with 41 points, followed by Whitefish Bay’s 35.

Grafton and West Bend East tied for eight with two points each. Port Washington came in last with zero.

The Pirates advanced two entries to the second day of the tournament.

Their No. 1 doubles team of Chloe and Tess Schueller beat Lily Sabel and Thu Vo of Grafton, 6-1, 6-3; before losing to Hailey Haws and Willow Larson of Cedarburg, 6-1, 6-1; and then to Kacie O’Hearn and Jessi Lambo of Slinger, 3-6, 6-2, 10-6.

“Chloe and Tess Schueller played a competitive match against Slinger. The pair was able to use the wind to their advantage as their opponents struggled to adjust during the first set. Chloe and Tess also had consistency which helped to fight against the pace of Slinger’s No. 1 doubles team,” coach Melonie Zielinski said.

At No. 4 singles, Pirate Zaara Rehman beat Julia Michaelson of West Bend West, 4-6, 6-3, 10-3; before losing to Hayden Nelson of Whitefish Bay, 6-0, 6-0.

Rehman then lost to Anna Richardson of Slinger, 6-0 6-0.

The teams were to compete in subsectionals this week.
