The Chesterton girls tennis team improved to 2-2 on the season with a 5-0 victory at Kankakee Valley on Monday night.

The Trojans cruised to easy early victories at No. 2 and No. 3 singles. At No. 2, Margaret Shinn blanked Amanda DeRolf 6-0, 6-0. J.J. Lee swept Hayley Hoffman 6-0, 6-0 at No. 3 singles.

“Margaret and J.J. blanking their opponent in singles was nice,” Chesterton coach Gretchen Shinn said.

Chesterton also picked up relatively easy victories in doubles as the No. 1 team of Sunny Lee and Rachel McCrum beat Kayla Fieldhouse and Abbie Wilder 6-2, 6-3.

Amanda Susnak and Brittny Stephan beat Jen Anderson and Kaylyn Banaszak 6-2, 6-2 at No. 2 doubles.

“We got solid performances out of our No. 1 and 2 doubles today,” Shinn said. “That was awesome to see.”

The only match in doubt came at No. 1 singles where Kankakee Valley’s Abby Hamstra won the opening set 6-1 over Chesterton’s Bobbi Modesto. Modesto battled back to complete the sweep with a 6-2, 6-4 victory in the final two sets.
