Seward Tennis Continues to Struggle Against Good Teams
04/09/2014
 

The #20 Seward County Saints are in a bit of a rut right now and they picked the wrong time in the season for it.  The Saints dropped their third straight match and fifth in their last six outings Tuesday in Wichita as Region VI rival Johnson County took it to the guys in green 7-2 in a match that only saw four matches played.

After winning an ITA National Championship in the fall and being ranked #1 in the ITA rankings, Seward’s Ronzai Saurombe and Alejandro’s spring troubles continued on Tuesday as they fell 8-5 to Spartak Rahachou and Kevin Koschersperger of Johnson County for their fourth loss in nine chances this season.  The Cavaliers picked up another win at #2 doubles with an 8-4 decision and a Seward forfeit gave Johnson a 3-0 lead after doubles action.

Only two singles matches were played in the dual.  At the top spot it was 8th ranked Rahachou taking down 41st ranked Gonzalez 6-1, 6-2 and at #3 singles the Saints Trevor Kipping kept his big freshman year going with a come from behind 4-6, 6-3, 10-6 win over Taylor Smith to give Seward their first point of the match.  Saurombe got a forfeit win at #2 singles, while Seward gave up points at #4, #5, and #6 singles to give Johnson County a 7-2 win.

Seward’s slow spring continues as they fall to 2-7 on the year.  The Saints also fall to 1-3 in Jayhawk Conference action.

The Saints will play their regular season finale on April 19th when they travel to Winfield, Kansas where they will take on McPherson in a dual.

It was much closer than the previous two, but the Seward County Lady Saints fell for the third straight outing Tuesday in Wichita as Region VI rival Johnson County clipped them 5-4 to drop them back to .500 at 6-6 on the year.

Play started with doubles action and as usual, the Lady Saints took a 1-0 lead as 5th ranked Paula Lopez and Paula Coyos took care of business at #1 doubles, this time against Yazmine El Ghazi and Jessi Houman in an 8-2 decision.  Johnson bounced back to take a 2-1 lead though as the Cavaliers picked up an 8-4 win at #2 doubles and the swing match of the dual in an 8-6 win in #3 doubles.

Seward played well at the top of their singles lineup as Lopez picked up an easy win at #1 as El Ghazi was forced to retire due to injury after Lopez took an early 3-0 lead in the match.  Coyos had no trouble at #2 singles, downing Kara Hoegerl 6-1, 6-0 to give the Lady Saints the lead back and Kathryn Roohan picked up a big win for Seward at #3 singles, beating Jessi Houman 7-5, 6-2 to put Seward up 4-2.  But once again, the bottom of the Seward lineup struggled to score points and Johnson County was able to close the match by winning the final three spots on the singles side to come from behind to win the match 5-4.

Seward drops their third straight match to fall to 6-6 on the year and the Lady Saints finish their Jayhawk West regular season schedule at 1-2.

The Lady Saints will continue a busy schedule on Saturday when they travel to Hillsboro to take on Bethany and Tabor in a pair of duals.
