GH tennis falls to Hudsonville

The Grand Haven tennis team hosted O-K Red Conference foe Hudsonville on Monday, losing a hard-fought match, 3-5.

Leading the Buccaneers were the No. 2 doubles pair of Cauryn Nowicki and Carley Schmidt and Felicity Alder at No. 4 singles, who took their flights to quick victories.

Nowicki and Schmidt took theirs in two sets, 6-4 and 6-1, while Alder finished off her competition, 6-2 and 6-2.

The No. 1 doubles pair of Audrey Reus and Lilja Plumert also grabbed a win for the Bucs, taking theirs after a tightly contested 7-6 and 6-4 sets.

“This match, along with the match against Grandville on Tuesday set the team up for the conference tournament on Saturday,” Grand Haven head coach Chris Wilton said. “If we had won today’s match, we would likely have been in third place going into the tournament. We hope to reverse this score on Saturday.”

The loss drops the Bucs’ conference record to 2-3. The Bucs face their final conference opponent today at Grandville.
