Wildcat duos split at states

BALTIMORE - Williamsport's two mixed doubles teams in the Maryland State Tennis Tournament both won their first matches, but fell in the second round to the top two seeds in the tournament.


Katie Spoonire and Mike Stambaugh defeated Patuxent's Jen Ragusa and Charlie Evans, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, in the first round, but lost to top-seeded Leslie Price and Chris Jacob of Roosevelt, 6-3, 6-2.

Meggie Miller and Jarod Spessard, making their second trip to states, also needed three sets to win in the opening round. They beat Northern of Calvert's Melissa Barry and Brendan McCarthy, 7-6 (5), 2-6, 7-5, but couldn't hang on against Poolesville's second-seeded team of Meredith Frye and Kenny Sholes, losing 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.

"Our kids could have beaten them on any given day, they just couldn't do it today," Williamsport coach Charlotte Trout said. "In the second match, Meggie just couldn't get them to hit away. You can only return so many balls when they keep hitting it at you."

Miller and Spessard matched last season's trip to the round of 16; Spoonire and Stambaugh made their first trip to states.

"They did better than last year," Trout said. "They did a much better job of staying in the matches, they just lost a few points here and there. I was real proud of them."

n In boys singles, Smithsburg's David Seifarth was eliminated in the first round by No. 2 seed Jamon Clayton of Oxon Hill, 6-1, 6-1.
