Southwestern girls tennis closed out the regular season by dropping just its third match of the season Monday in a disappointing 3-2 road loss to Lawrenceburg.

The Rebels lost both doubles matches and the No. 1 singles to give the Tigers enough wins to pull out the match win. However, the No. 2 doubles match between Southwestern’s Audrey Bare and Ally Voorhies and Lawrenceburg’s Ryleigh Offutt and Ellie McAndrew couldn’t have been any closer as the Rebel duo fell in a 6-7, (7-5) 7-6 (7-5), 11-9 marathon to tip the outcome to the Tigers.

“Disappointing loss on the road tonight,” Southwestern coach Kenny Garrett said. “We are very young and just have not figured out yet that you have to be ready to play every single match. You just can’t continue to make the same mistakes and expect a different outcome. Tennis is a sport where you must make the opponent make the mistakes to have a chance to win and be successful.”

Southwestern’s wins were by Elle Ford over Jasmyn Blackborn 6-2, 7-5 at No. 2 singles and Autumn Harmon over Evelyn McAndrew 6-1, 6-3 at No. 3 singles.

Julia Worcester lost to Lawrenceburg’s Grace Safaviyan 6-1, 7-5 at No. 1 singles and the Rebels’ No. 1 doubles team of Ashlyn Cloud and Trinity Stoner lost 6-1, 6-1 to the Tigers’ Sheridan Houze and Calli Pope.

Southwestern (13-3) will get a chance to avenge one of its three losses Wednesday when the Rebels play Greensburg at 5 p.m. in the opening round of the IHSAA Greensburg Sectional.
