While it could have been considered a foregone conclusion, the Carson girls tennis team didn't look past its match on Tuesday against Hug.
That would have been easy to do since the Senators will host Douglas High on Thursday at Centennial Park in a match that figures to go a long way in determining seedings for the Northern Nevada playoffs.
But Carson took care of business against Hug first and beat the outmanned Hawks 18-4 1/2 at Centennial Park to even its record at 2-2.
"I thought they went out and played hard, which is what we needed," Carson coach Kincaid DeJoseph said.
"We don't take anything for granted. It's never a done deal. You have to go out there and play."
Carson's top doubles team of Polly Johnson and Natalie Rogers played just one match, winning 6-0. Rogers also teamed with Erica Eng for a 6-1 win.
Janae Jeppson and Christine Atchen won both of their matches 6-0, 6-1. In addition in doubles, Denise Rikalo and Lindsay Fonda won 6-0, 6-0 in the two matches, Michele VanEpps and Maura O'Neill won 6-1 and Miranda Mahe and Alex Jagner won 6-3.
In singles, Tara Haddon won 6-0, Kelsey Joyce won 6-0, 6-1, Katie Perdomo won 6-1, Juliana Balderson won 6-1 and Beth Ware won 6-2.
"They're always good," said DeJoseph about Douglas. "They're always competitive with us.
"If we win, great, if we lose, hey, they're a good team. I've been looking forward to this match all year."
CARSON BOYS WIN
The Carson boys tennis team shut out an outmanned Hug team 22 1/2 -0. Hug had just two doubles teams.
Winning both of their matches were the teams of Josh Brekken and Andy Araza, Ash Dauenhauer and Karl Schulz and Zach Caron and John McDonald.
