Tioga County Sports Report
OWEGO / BINGHAMTON — The young and understaffed Owego girls tennis team christened its refurbished courts on Friday, falling to Chenango Valley, 7-0.

The River Hawks also dropped a 7-0 decision at Seton Catholic Monday.

Against CV, Elaina Anschutz dropped a tough battle to Alexis Sands, 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) in singles action.

In doubles, Meredith Westcott and Morgan Carrigg lost a pair of 6-3 verdicts to Ashland Craig and Natalia Dithrich.

In the match with Seton, Anschutz fell to the Saints’ Annie Sarra in singles, 6-1, 6-2.

Carrigg and Westcott lost to Seton’s Sylvia Porcari and Annabella Leonard, 6-0, 6-1.

With a roster of just three players, Owego is in a tough spot in matches against teams which can fill the majority of the four singles spots and three doubles slots, but the Hawks continue to learn and grow.

The refurbished courts offer an impressive home venue for the River Hawks. In addition to resurfaced courts and new fencing, two bump outs have been constructed for home and away teams, and two of the six courts will be set up for pickleball. There are still lights for community members who wish to play at night.

Owego (0-5) plays its next four matches at home, including Windsor on Wednesday.

NOTE: Owego is planning an event to introduce the community to the refurbished courts.
