Spring Lake coach Cathy Layson’s girls’ tennis team fell short of its goal of making it to the state tournament Saturday, managing just six of the required 18 points needed to advance.  At the Division 3 Regional meet, which was won by the host school, Grand Rapids Christian, Spring Lake played well but could not amass the points needed for state.

Number 1 singles player, Meryn Campbell, easily defeated her first opponent, Maddy Bent of Comstock Park, 6-1, 6-1, but later fell to Catholic Central’s Liz Pniewski, 6-4, 6-1.  The loss brings to an end the fine career of Campbell, who will graduate next month.  Campbell told the Grand Haven Tribune that playing tennis, being a part of this team, was the best part of high school for her.

Spring Lake’s no. 1 doubles team, Kenzie Regualos and Carina Schubert, defeated South Christian, 6-3, 6-0, but fell in the second round to Forest Hills Eastern, 6-2, 6-2. The no. 2 doubles team, Annie Brechting and Taylor Hoffman, also advanced  beyond the first round, quickly dispatching the team from Comstock Park, 6-1, 6-1, before falling to GR Christian, 6-1, 6-2.  

Also winning in their opening rounds were number 3 doubles, Hannah Jones and Anna Kramer, who defeated Unity Christian, 6-1, 6-3, and number 4 doubles, Sydney Prescott and Hannah Cabala, who trounced Coopersville, 6-1, 6-0.  
The Lakers will lose the talented Campbell and Jones to graduation, but a young core returns, including no. 2 singles, Francie Bailey, who lost 6-1, 6-1 to Grand Rapids Christian; no. 3 singles, Erin Henderson, who fell to South Christian, 6-2, 6-3; and no. 4 singles, Chloe Babinski, who dropped a tough 6-2, 6-2 match.
