DUBOIS — The DuBois Lady Beavers’ tennis team picked up its first win of the season Monday with a 6-1 victory over Johnsonburg.

“Players Grace Askey, Maddie Brantley and Kara Miller really had a great showing today,” DuBois coach Joshua Reed said.

DuBois took all singles matchups — which were played to just one set. The No. 1 matchup saw Grace Askey beat Kendal Mehalko 8-3.

“Grace and Kendal had many exciting rallies,” Reed said.

DuBois’ Cassie Lanzoni beat Maria Catalano 8-3, Jessica Hnat beat Olivia Barker 8-3 and Laken Lashinski capped off the singles sweep, taking down Alayna Notarianni 8-0.

For doubles, Johnsonburg’s lone victory on the day came in the first matchup, as Mehalko and Catalano beat Bri Quiariere and Jade Suhan 8-0. But for the final two matchups, DuBois took over as Maddie Brantley and Kara Miller beat Barker and Mariah Kennedy 8-4 and the duo of Liz Coleman and Lauren Kennedy beat Aliza Jackson and Ruby Miller in a hard-fought 9-7 contest.

Both teams are back in action today as DuBois hosts Bradford and Johnsonburg travels to Brockway.
