Back To Front Page


Taylor Nemtuda and Eliza Tumbas just kept battling.

The duo battled back from one set down to get the match-clinching third point as the Chesterton girls tennis team beat Michigan City 3-2 on Tuesday.

“It was so nice to see Taylor and Eliza come back from a set down and win in three sets,” Chesterton coach Tom Bour said. “Especially to win a match for us.”

Nemtuda and Tumbas dropped the first set 6-3, but battled back to win the second set 7-6 (7-1 in the tiebreak). In the third set, the Trojan duo won 6-4 over Jennifer Justus and Brianne Norman.

The other point in doubles came from the team of Rachel Fredenburg and Megan Hill at No. 1. The duo beat Katie Bildhauser and Madison Laux 6-4, 6-3.

The Trojans first point of the night came at No. 3 singles as Paige Donovan had little trouble in beating Rachel Krentz 6-0, 6-0.

“With Paige and both doubles teams coming up big for us, it shows them that we can pull off some matches even when our top two positions don’t come out on top,” Bour said.

Chesterton returns to the court tonight as they host Andrean beginning at 4:30 p.m.
