Lady Buc netters open season with losses to UHS and Lincoln

BUCKHANNON – As Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Jason Rock continues to rebuild the Lady Bucs tennis program, he was pleased with how they opened their season despite losses in their first two matches of the 2022 season.

They Lady Bucs opened their campaign Thursday at home with a 7-0 loss to University on the WVWC courts and then dropped a road outing to Lincoln on Friday by a 7-0 score.

“University’s girls are probably some of the best girls we will see all year but our girls put up a fight,” noted Rock. “I thought against Lincoln, our No. 2 doubles duo of Madelyn Frye and Alexa Davis started to play better. Madelyn and Alexa are just having fun and are starting to see results. They hit a few winners every game that they won. If they can work on their movement and hit a few important shots, they will be a force to be reckoned with.”

The Lady Bucs saw their Saturday outings with John Marshall and Brooke get postponed.

They were slated to play Wheeling Park on Monday and will visit Bridgeport on Wednesday.
