Fremont Ross coach Lisa Wolfe wants to see all five courts demonstrate the type of energy exhibited Thursday by Emmie Moyer and Bailey Druckenmiller at No. 2 doubles.

Druckenmiller and Moyer earned the Little Giants victory in straight sets, but the Little Giants fell to Port Clinton 4-1 in a non-conference matchup.

“They’re serves were working well and their net play was great,” Wolfe said.

“They showed energy and determination. We need to be consistent with that type of energy on all the courts. The season only gets tougher after (Thursday) with our league.”

Wolfe plans to focus upcoming practice time on footwork and enthusiasm.

“That’s all we’re going to work on (today),” she said of footwork.

“To be good players, their footwork has to improve. Some of the courts seemed lethargic.”

Moyer and Druckenmiller, however, caught Wolfe’s eye Thursday with their positioning and court coverage. They are 3-1 this season after playing at the junior varsity level last season and played their best match against the Redskins.

“The highlight was No. 2 doubles,” she said. “They played like a doubles team and looked like a doubles team should look.”

Lauren Emrich, who played No. 2 singles last season, was at No. 1 singles Thursday.

Taylor Paeth played singles and doubles last season, and was at No. 2 singles against Port Clinton.

Kelly Bondra played junior varsity last year and No. 3 singles Thursday while Emily Hamilton and Aubrey Fox were at No. 1 doubles.

Hamilton also played first doubles last season while Fox was at No. 2 doubles and junior varsity.

The Little Giants (3-4), who shut out Maumee on Wednesday, had a busy week with four matches.
