Cowley Handles Seward Tennis
04/08/2014

The good news for the #16 Seward County Lady Saints is, their top two players, Paula Lopez and Paula Coyos didn't lose a match on Monday in a big regional matchup with #9 Cowley.  The bad news for Seward is, nobody else was able to follow their lead as the Lady Saints lost the other six matches in the dual to fall to the Tigers 6-3.

On paper it looked to be a dynamite matchup at #1 doubles between Seward's 5th ranked duo of Lopez and Coyos and Cowley's 11th ranked pair of Hannah Brown and Ana Ruzir, but Cowley decided to switch up their lineup and instead of Ruzir the Lady Saints got unranked Shali Schopflin and took advantage, winning rather easily 8-3 to give Seward its first point of the match.  Ruzir would play at #2 doubles and paired with Erianne Adams for the Tigers to bounce the Lady Saints Jackie Arnold and Kathryn Roohan 8-2 to tie the match at 1. In #3 doubles it was again Cowley earning the point with an 8-3 win to give them a 2-1 lead into singles play.

In singles action it was a great matchup between 14th ranked Lopez and 8th ranked Ruzir at the top spot.  Lopez took the first with ease 6-1 before Ruzir answered with a 6-4 win in the second set to force a tiebreak.  In the tiebreak it was all Lopez as the Lady Saints freshman won a 10-2 decision to take the match.  In #2 singles 27th ranked Coyos had her way with 32nd ranked Sarah Giraldo, winning 6-2, 6-2 to give Seward a 3-2 lead.  But, it was Cowley who dominated the final four spots, winning 6-0, 6-0 at #4 and #6 singles and 6-3, 6-1 at #3 and #5 to take home the match 6-3.

Seward drops their third match in four outs as they fall to 6-5 on the year and 1-1 in Jayhawk Conference action.

In a much anticipated Jayhawk Conference rivalry matchup with the Cowley Tigers Monday afternoon in Wichita, the Seward County Saints were only able to collect two points in a lopsided 7-2 loss to the their Region VI rivals.

Cowley took the early advantage in doubles play as they picked up a forfeit win at #3 and got an 8-1 win in #2 doubles to go up 2-0.  The Saints were able to pick up a point in pairs play when Ronzai Saurombe and Alejandro Gonzalez defeated Josh Coleman and Seth Moore 8-4 to make it 2-1.

In singles action it was Cowley picking up the point at #1 singles, despite missing their top player, as 19th ranked Erik Eldgasen took down 41st ranked Gonzalez 6-2, 5-7, 10-6 to seal the match for the Tigers.  Saurombe got the Saints lone win in singles action as the knocked off Coleman 7-6 (5), 6-3 while Moore won at #3 singles 6-3, 6-3, handing Seward's Trevor Kipping his first loss of the season.  Cowley won 6-1, 6-1 at #4 singles and picked up two forfeits at #5 and #6 to win 7-2.
