Roseburg girls take second in Roseburg Invitational

April 14, 2019

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.
