Prep Sports: The Rundown
September 3, 2010
The Park City High School girls’ tennis team looks to be on somewhat of a roll.
A week after winning the Ogden Invitational in dramatic fashion, the Miners went up to Bear River to face the 3A Bears on Tuesday and handled them quite handily.
Park City swept all five varsity matches, with singles No. 1 Stormy Dvorak besting Bear River’s Krissy Nichols, 6-4, 6-4. No. 2 Solveig Karlsen followed suit by beating Courtney Comstock, 6-2, 6-2. Lastly, No. 3 singles player Alex Oriente beat Caitlin Johnson, 6-1, 6-0.
The doubles duo of Dani Lecher and Kara Johnson defeated Bear River’s Darcie Christensen and Celeste Hancock, 6-3, 7-5. No. 2 doubles team of Katherine Davis and Julie Patterson beat Tyree Haromoto and Kathryn Christensen, 6-3, 6-3.
The junior varsity Miner doubles teams also swept the Bears, finishing up the day, 10-0.
The Miners next take the court Tuesday, Sept. 7, at rival Wasatch. Matches start at 3:30 in Heber.
Volleyball team struggles on road at Kearns
Katie McLintock was not pleased with her team’s last performance.
The Park City High School girls’ volleyball head coach did not mince words when asked what went wrong Tuesday against 5A Kearns.
"It was not the prettiest game," she said. "I don’t think we were in the right mindset."
The Miners lost to the Cougars in straight games, 3-0.
While Park City has a quick turnaround against 4A Westlake next Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Saratoga Springs, and Coach McLintock thinks that her team has the ability to bounce back and will do so.
"It was disappointing, but bodies get tired, teams get tired. Stuff like that will happen," she said. "I expect them to do much better. We had a good talk."
The Miners will open region play at home next Thursday against Carbon at 6:30 p.m.
