IC West Women take three straight

Rain delay and missing top two players didn’t hinder IC West
Rain delay and missing top two players didn’t hinder IC West North Liberty Leader DUBUQUE– Rain delayed the start of tennis matches by three-and-a-half hours Saturday, April 21, and the Iowa City West Women of Troy were short their top-two singles players, Emma and Audrey Koch, but nonetheless the team knocked off Wahlert and Hempstead to improve to 6-0 in the Mississippi Valley Conference (MVC). West High defeated Wahlert, 5-4, and Hempstead, 6-3. “Without our number one and two singles players in the lineup, the Women of Troy stepped up and came out victorious against last year’s co-conference champs (Wahlert) and a tough Hempstead team,” Coach Amie Villarini said. “Jessica Moonjely came up with some solid wins at the one position today. Confidence is rising! West High entertains Waterloo West on Thursday, April 26, at 5:30 p.m. and travels to Cedar Rapids on Saturday, April 28, for an 8 a.m. match with Cedar Rapids Washington at Washington High, and a noon match with Cedar Rapids Kennedy at Kennedy High. The Women of Troy will take on their crosstown rival, City High, Tuesday, May 1, at the University of Iowa’s Tennis Complex starting at 4 p.m.
