The South Putnam Eagles gave Northview's tennis team all they could handle on Senior Night.

However, in the end the Knights came out on top by a 4-1 score.

Before the match, the Knights honored Freddy Karg, Andrea James, Jazmine Kellum, Kaley Huffman, Kirsten Hettwer, Mallory Heffner and Olivia Kumpf.

"We have a great group of seniors this year," commented coach Bethany Jones. "We have seven seniors, which include two foreign exchange students, and all are very hard workers. They have really stepped up as leaders this year. They will all be missed, but we know they will succeed in whatever directions they choose to go."

Kellum scored a win at No. 1 singles with a 6-2, 6-1 win over the Eagles' Chelsea Clark.

Allie Melega had a battle on her hands at No. 2 singles against Whitney Warren.

Melega outlasted Warren in the first set, 7-6 (8-6), before taking the match 6-1 with a second set victory.

The No. 1 doubles team of Bonnie Froderman and James lost the opening set, 5-7, before rebounding to take a 7-6 (8-6) in the second set and win the match with a third set 6-1 win.

In the No. 2 doubles match, Hannah Pond and Kumpf won a 6-3, 6-2 match.

In the JV matches, Lauren Reberger won 8-2 and Miranda Brossman won 8-3 for the Knights.

The JV doubles team of Kaci Khert and Chloe Burdette won 8-1 and Carli Coughanowr teamed with Conner Reinoehl for an 8-2 win.

The Knights (10-3) travel to Danville on Wednesday evening.
