Mississinewa swept by Delta in regional round

The Mississinewa Indians’ historic 2018 campaign came to an end on Tuesday in the Marion Regional, as they were swept by the Delta Eagles, 5-0.

The Eagles won four of the five matches with relative ease. Haleigh Rowley, Heidi Rowley, and the doubles pair of Abigail Tignor and Maggie Herring each lost 6-2, 6-1 at No. 1 singles, No. 2 singles, and No. 2 doubles, respectively, while Gabby Stephenson and Heavyn Miller won just one game in a 6-0, 6-1 defeat at No. 1 doubles.

Tyra Stanley put forth a valiant effort at No. 3 singles, but lost her first match of the season in a 6-3, 7-5 defeat.

The Indians accomplished quite a bit in the 2018 campaign. Along with a first place finish in the Homestead Invitational and a conference championship, Mississinewa won their first sectional title in program history.

The Indians finish their season with a 15-3 record, with all three losses coming against ranked opponents.
