Tiger tennis falls to Crawfordsville

The Crawfordsville tennis team traveled east to Lebanon Wednesday afternoon and left happy.

The Athenians topped the Tigers 5-0 in a Sagamore Conference match-up.

"There were a couple of matches that didn't go the way that I expected," Lebanon head coach Lisa Erwin said. "I was hoping to get a couple of wins, but that didn't happen. I knew they were going to be strong. They are deep enough that they can rotate some girls around, kind of like we could a couple of years ago. We haven't had time to get our doubles set at all. We have had kids out with sickness and travel and we haven't been able to get it straight yet."

Erwin said that because of when Lebanon's spring break fell, as well as the cold and rainy weather, the Tigers are still figuring things out lineup wise.

"It puts us a little behind," Erwin said. "Before our first match we were only on the court twice. Everybody is in the same situation, don't get me wrong, but it has been very frustrating. You can't get into the shape you need to. We had an all-day tourney on Saturday so that was 10 hours of playing and that is a long day of playing when you haven't been on the court as much."

Erwin said it is good to have long tournaments like the Mount Vernon Invite that they played on Saturday and tough opponents like Crawfordsville, which finished 19-2 last season, early in the season.
