Hot Dogs sweep Twin Lakes

The Hot Dogs earned a 5-0 win over the Twin Lakes Indians on Monday at Frankfort.

Frankfort won in straight sets in No. 3 singles and both doubles matches but junior Emily Michael at No. 1 singles and senior Annie Giebel at No. 2 singles came back from first-set losses to beat their Twin Lakes counterparts and facilitate the sweep.

Frankfort’s reserves also earned a 5-0 win.

In the singles matches, Madison Toney beat Yuli Espino (8-1), Rebeca Perez beat Megan Achor (8-2), and Ashlyn Harshbarger beat Jenna Contreras (8-3). In reserve doubles, the Frankfort No. 1 team of Marilu Perez and Katherine Barrera defeated Lauren Hardebeck and Jerika Schroeder (8-1) while the No. 2 team of Maddie Swinford and Raelyn Mitchell defeated Montana Wolfe and Sheyla Covarrubias (8-2).

“Coach Kelli VanDuyne and I are pleased with both the varsity and reserve varsity squads going 5-0 tonight,” Frankfort head coach Scott Rohrabaugh said. “Everyone played well. The weather conditions weren’t the greatest, but we played through it. Kelli and I feel the team is dialing it in. I feel that, after a few more matches, the team will be firing on all cylinders. With the nasty weather, the Lady Hot Dogs stayed focused on the task at hand and came home with not only another victory, but a shutout at that. The team has every right to be proud of their effort – I am.”
