For more than three hours Friday night, Seymour’s Marley Vehslage and Austin’s Jessie Davidson battled it out on the tennis court.
Even though the No. 2 singles players were the last ones standing in the Seymour Sectional championship match, Vehslage was playing without pressure. Her team had already clinched the match with three wins, while Austin had one point.
Davidson won the first set 6-2 before Vehslage forced a third set with a 7-5 win. Vehslage then lost a 4-1 lead in the third set, and the best she could do was tie it at 5 as Davidson won the final two games. That made the final score 3-2 in favor of Seymour.
“There was nothing on the line with that match except for really pride at that point,” Owls coach Nathan Otte said. “(Vehslage) just stayed with it mentally, and that Austin girl was very, very strong. It was just a good test for Marley.
