TENNIS: Chalfant, Lampman fuel WCHS girls to dual win over St. Edmond

WEBSTER CITY – Anchored by its top two singles players, who also happen to form the No. 1 doubles team, the Webster City girls’ tennis team took care of Fort Dodge St. Edmond to sweep the regular season duals at the WCHS Courts.

Lynne Chalfant and Courtney Lampman cruised in singles and then wasted very little time when they joined forces. Chalfant thumped Lily Peterson, 8-3, while Lampman disposed of Rachel Willerth 8-2. They then clocked Peterson and Willerth 8-2 on the doubles court.

“Lynne and Courtney are playing the best tennis I’ve seen them play all season,” WCHS head coach Heather Kierzek said.

Sierra Anderson was an 8-2 singles winner over Iris Baek for the Lynx, and Olinca Padierna had no trouble with Madison Tarbox, 8-3.

Megan Carpenter and Jordann Nagel finished it off with an 8-5 doubles victory.

WCHS will travel to Clear Lake today for a make-up dual with the Lions at 4:30 p.m. Then it’s on to Thursday’s Class 1A singles/doubles district tournament in Waterloo.
