Seniors honored in season home finale versus Pacelli
space
Tonight we honored our seniors, Sydney Lenzner, Isabelle Matuszewski, Pia Spychalla, and French foreign exchange student, Emeline Palenciano Widart before hosting a non conference match against Pacelli, Antigo Coach Aimee Hein stated.

As the match got underway, Antigo could quickly see that it would be a tough night. Each match was going point-for-point, game-for-game, raising tensions high early on. Ultimately is was the visitors who took the night 4-3.

The first match to finish up was Avery Nicholson at No. 4 singles. Her quick and instinctive style was too much for her opponent to overcome giving Antigo its first win.

No. 2 doubles team of Spychalla and Lenzner didn’t look like themselves in the first set; they allowed small mistakes to come at big moments. The girls fought back in the second set, taking the match to a super-set tie breaker. Unfortunately, the win slipped away.

A similar pattern happened with Ellie Kelly at No. 3 singles.

After losing the first set, Kelly pulled ahead on a mission in a blowout second set. For some reason, her momentum came to a halt in the super-set tie breaker.

On the next court over No. 3 doubles duo, Samantha Belling and Jenna Lenzner built off of their first set lead, widening the gap in the second set and then finishing with a solid win. Antigo’s second of the evening.

Things didn’t go so smoothly for the Robins No. 1 doubles team of Taylor Arrowood and Abby Robrecht who started strong with a first set win.

Pacelli made the necessary adjustments and outplayed Antigo’s, usually unstoppable, duo. Another super-set tie breaker came and went with a loss in our book.

Maya Gaedtke played some phenomenal tennis at No. 1 singles.

She hit hard, played aggressively, and played strategically. Even more impressive, was Maya’s ability to chase down the most challenging shots to keep rallies going and going, Hein added.

Gaedtke’s persistence and resiliency paid off with a win.

The last varsity match on the courts was Izzy Matuszewski at No. 2 singles.

The first set seemed to be slipping away, but Izzy clawed her way to a set tiebreaker and a hard earned first set win by moving her opponent around the court and hitting low and hard shots, the coach explained.

The second set was another tough start, as Matuszewski was down three games; again, she fought back with a vengeance but couldn’t quite claim the second set. The fourth super-set tie breaker of the night had to be played.

Matuszewski continued to fight like crazy, but her opponent edged out with the win.

A tough 3-4 loss gave us something to think about the rest of the week as we prepare to host our conference tournament on Saturday, Hein stated.

Some of the junior varsity players saw much better luck.

Adie Smith shut out Johanna Hall, 6-0, and doubles team Ellie Proboski and Noelle Tischendorf shut out Pacelli’s team, Stephanie Nack and Maya Horgan, 6-0.

The Great Northern Conference tournament gets underway Saturday at 9 a.m. Looking to claim its first conference title ever, Antigo will have Rhinelander nipping at their heels as the Hodags are tied at 9-1 in conference wins with the Lady Robins. Antigo holds the points total edge at 124 to 120.

Medford sits in third at 5-4 with 70 points; Lakeland is fourth at 2-5, 28; Columbus Catholic in fifth at 1-8, 18; and Phillips is sixth at 0-7, 4.
