Jumbled Bobcats blank Eau Claire

By By DAN WEISS / Niles Daily Star
NILES -- A number of factors could have deterred the Brandywine varsity tennis team Wednesday afternoon, but the Bobcats held together for an 8-0 non-conference victory over Eau Claire.
The Bobcats, now 8-3 on the year, played with a new lineup due to the school's powderpuff football game. When Eau Claire arrived late, the meet was switched from three-set matches to eight-game pro sets.
Jenny Zellman, Jenny Cowen, Bethany Daniel and Amy Konopinski each won singles matches for Brandywine.
The Bobcat doubles teams of Christine Dvorak and Amanda Hancock, Kristin Peters and Courtney Schlutt, Amy Sipocz and Melissa Buzzard and Samantha Quartuccio and Erin Fuson were also flawless.
Brandywine….8
Eau Claire……0
Singles: 1. Jenny Zellman beat Annaka Kretshmer 9-8; 2. Jenny Cowen beat Meg Reed 9-7; 3. Bethany Daniel beat Jessica Lopez 8-2; 4. Amy Konopinski beat Tracy Collard 8-2
Doubles: 1. Christine Dvorak/Amanda Hancock beat Chrissie Whaley/Angela Kichno 8-2; 2. Kristin Peters/Courtney Schlutt beat Tammie Glowackie/Amber Statler 8-1; 3. Amy Sipocz/Melissa Buzzard beat Heather Feletten/Bev Whaley 8-3; 4. Samantha Quartuccio/Erin Fuson beat Lynn Lee/Cate Reed 8-2
