The Ankeny Centennial girls’ tennis team extended its winning streak to four matches with a 9-2 victory over visiting Waukee in a non-conference meet on Tuesday.
The fourth-ranked Jaguars won five of the six singles matches and four of the five doubles matches. They improved to 4-1 on the season, while No. 6 Waukee’s record dropped to 2-3.
“That was a very tough Waukee team,” said Centennial coach Armando Espinosa. “We had some very tough matches at certain spots, but we were able to capitalize in a few third-set tiebreakers.”
Centennial’s Abbie Peterson posted a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Allie Roeth at No. 1 singles. She raised her record to 7-1.
Jordyn Gustafson, Esther Guan, Taylor Kruse and Sara Truong also won their singles matches for the Jaguars. Truong won in three sets at the No. 6 position.
Guan then teamed up with her sister, Claudia, for another three-set victory at No. 2 doubles.
“We competed well and we hope to be ready for Ames Thursday and honor our seniors,” Espinosa said.
