Ottumwa girls tennis nets Metro win at Indianola

INDIANOLA — After having to miss out on her team's win in their CIML Metro Conference opener because of the flue on Monday, Ottumwa girls head coach Emily Phommachack was along for the ride on the Bulldogs' first road trip for a Metro dual at Indianola on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs made the trip well worth it with an 8-3 road win over Indianola to move to 2-0 in Metro play.

Doubles were again a big part of the story for the Bulldogs in the Metro win. Once again, Ottumwa won four out of five doubles matches to clinch the team victory with Jill Ardueser and Katie Zingg maintaining perfect Metro records by winning in both singles and doubles play.

"Jill had strong hits and powerful serves all day," Phommachack said. "Katie placed her shots well and really forced her opponent to move."

The Bulldogs also set the tone early on by scoring wins in the top two singles matches with Kelsey Granneman beating Anya Kim 6-3, 6-1 in the top singles match while Jennifer Klodt beat Monica Fonnolly 6-2, 6-1. The top Ottumwa duo then scored a 6-4, 6-2 win over Kim and Brittany Blanford to kick off the Bulldogs' doubles dominance.

"Kelsey played aggressively, moved her feet and had nice angle shots at the net in her singles match. Jennifer moved her opponent around and placed her shots very well," Phommachack said. "In doubles, ultimately they set their minds to win and followed through."

Ottumwa (3-2, 2-0) will look to finish off its dominant opening week of Metro play at home against Des Moines East Thursday afternoon at Dan Staggs Courts at 4 p.m. The Bulldogs will then host Hoover for Senior night next week on Monday.
