WIAA Girls Tennis Roundup: Plymouth's Raeder splits on Day 1

By

After making two previous WIAA State Girls Tennis Tournament appearances without a victory, Plymouth senior Elizabeth Raeder entered Thursday’s Day 1 of Division 1 competition hoping to walk away with a win.

She did just that.

Raeder (23-8) split a pair of matches at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium in Madison as she opened on a high note with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Pulaski freshman Molly Plummer (20-10).

In her second match, Raeder fell behind after a first-set loss of 6-0 to Wauwatosa West junior Nicole Meylor. Raeder rebounded, though to win Set 2 7-5.

In the decisive Set 3, Raeder fell to Meylor (29-4) 6-2.

Also in Division 1, Sheboygan North senior Lindsay Gosse (9-8), a three-time qualifier, fell 6-1, 6-1 in her opening singles match to Sun Prairie sophomore Dao Sysouvanh (25-4).

The Golden Raiders were also represented by the doubles team of junior Savannah Pond and sophomore Alison Gress (16-12). Making their first state appearance, the duo was defeated 7-6(6), 6-2 by sophomores Bella Auger and Hannah Lein (9-7), of Brookfield East.

DIVISION 2

Kohler senior singles player Elyse Gutschow (21-7), making her second straight state appearance, fell in her opening match to Regis senior Amy Sacia 6-3, 6-4.

The Blue Bombers will get a chance at some redemption, though, as Sacia will now face Kohler junior and No. 4 seed Audra Hoffmann (25-5) today at 11 a.m. as Hoffmann had a first-round bye.

Kohler additionally was represented by the doubles team of sophomore Allie Bryce and junior Katie Lindow (13-18). Making their first state appearance, the pair fell in their opening match to Edgewood Sacred Heart freshman Abby Foxx and sophomore JoJo Munns (23-2) 6-2, 6-2.
