Chiddick, Spears shine for Lions girls' tennis at Parkrose
Pair defeats Monica Chin/Revekka Shiryayeva 6-1, 6-2
Kathleen Chiddick and Hannah Spears came through for the Lions on Tuesday at Parkrose High School in Portland.
The senior doubles pair started slowly but defeated the Broncos' Monica Chin and Revekka Shiryayeva 6-1, 6-2.
Parkrose took the afternoon 8-1.
"This was a very good result for an extremely young team," St. Helens coach Dave Geiger said. "We battled in just about every match. The dual meet went late into evening, and there were quite a few balls struck to win each point in singles. We remain very competive in doubles and will improve over the season. We are all looking forward to our district opener [at 2 p.m. on Tuesday at Sandy High School]."
