WABASH - Huntington North’s girls’ tennis picked up its second win in as many days on Wednesday. In much warmer conditions than Tuesday’s showdown against Peru, the Vikings traveled to Southwood where they came away winners by a 5-0.

All five matches went to Huntington North in straight sets on the night as the visitors took the win in convincing fashion.

Jessica Henline earned a 6-2, 6-1 win for her first victory of the season at No. 1 singles. Kassidy Thompson picked up a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 2 singles for the Vikings while Tarah Zumbrun earned a 6-0, 6-1 win at No. 3 singles.

In doubles action, the team of Macy Wohlford and Julie Nogaj won 6-3, 6-3 at No. 1 doubles while the duo of Braxtyn Maroney and Leann Ringenberg won 6-1, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles.

The varsity team moves to 2-0 on the season with the win. The Vikings were back in action on Thursday night against sectional foe Adams Central, but results were unavailable as of deadline on Thursday.

In JV action on Wednesday, the Vikings picked a 9-2 win to move to 2-0 as well on the season.

In singles play, Katie Paolillo, Maisy Kesler and Emma Bickel all earned victories.

Doubles play saw the teams of Emily Daas and Emily Bokel, Crosley Stanley and Sydney SMekens, Mary Young and Lindsey Hunt, Gabi Haneline and Julia Crist, Chloe Hart and Haileigh Nissley and Kadi El-Hussein and Mandi Lippe all earn victories.
