Roseburg girls take second in Roseburg Invitational
The Roseburg High girls tennis team placed second in the Roseburg Invitational at the Umpqua Valley Tennis Center on Saturday.
Summit defeated Roseburg 5-3 in the championship dual to earn the team title. Sheldon defeated Ashland to take third.
The Tribe held its own against a strong Summit team even without two of its strongest players as Samantha and Mackenzie Eichman didn’t play Saturday.
Jayda Pieske played as Roseburg’s No. 1 singles player in Eichman’s absence and defeated Summit’s Anika Groener 2-6, 7-6, 10-8. Hannah Root also won her singles match for Roseburg. In doubles, only Roseburg’s Leann Laws and Steffi Early earned a win, defeating Sasha Schottinaefer and Jasa Stella, 6-2, 6-1.
Roseburg will have a Southwest Conference dual with North Medford on Tuesday.
