NCCS beats Lake Placid, 4-1, 3-2, in CVAC tennis | Sports

CHAMPLAIN – Northeastern Clinton took both sides of a Champlain Valley Athletic Conference tennis match against Lake Placid, Thursday.

Maggie Sample led the night for the girls side, with a win over Reagan Levitt of Lake Placid after taking the first set in a tiebreaker.

Cougars coach Harry McManus said that the match of the day was the No. 2 singles, when Dalila Purisic came back to win against Elsie Fitzsimmons, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.

“She showed great resilience bouncing back after losing the first set to pull a comeback win against a great opponent,” he said.

The Blue Bombers then got on the board with the No. 3 singles match, when Melanie Megliorie defeated Jenna Pennington.

The Cougars then swept the girls doubles, with Laci Roberts and Callie Racine winning the No. 1 slot and Sydney Lemieux and Brynn Hite taking the No. 2.

For the boys, the first two singles matches went to Lake Placid, with Sonja Toishi and Tristan Spotts winning the No. 1 and 2, respectively.

Haven Dragoon then got the Cougars a win on Senior Night, in the No. 3 singles, after falling in the first set to Kenneth Lawless, then coming back to win the final two.

“Our experience paid off to pull out a nail-biter,” McManus said. “We were led by a comeback win, from senior Dragoon. He leaned on his experience of him, and it was awesome having the team stay with him late into the evening to secure the win when the match score was 2-2. “

Owen Roberts and Darren Dubois continued their hot streak in the No. 1 doubles, winning over Nash and Harrison Carlisto. The duo of Marcus Bedard and Blake Chevalier secured the No. 2 doubles spot for the Cougars.
