Tennis Lady Bucs still improving but fall to Patriots

WHEELING – The young Buckhannon-Upshur tennis Lady Bucs continue to get better under the watchful eye of head coach Jason Rock.

The Lady Bucs dropped a road rematch to Wheeling Park last Thursday by a 7-0 score, but Rock continues to see improvement from his young squad.

Madelyn Frye had the most competitive match for the Lady Bucs, taking Taylor Andrews to the wire before dropping an 8-6 decision at No. 3 singles.

“You can tell by our decision making, movement, and positioning on the court that our girls are all still very young,” noted Rock. “I tell the girls all the time though, aside from our lone senior Alexa Davis, they have all only been playing tennis for approximately one year. Aside from Alexa, none of the girls had ever held a racket in their hands before March 15, 2021. I think if they can keep from getting frustrated and continue to compete, be coachable, and have fun, we will see success.”

The loss dropped the Lady Bucs to 0-4 on the year.

Their matches with Washington on Saturday and Grafton on Monday were wiped out by the weather.

They will be back in action Tuesday hosting Liberty.
