CHAMPAIGN -- The Gibson City-Melvin-Sibley tennis team lost 8-1 to St. Thomas More.
"We had a much better showing than the first time they played us when we went 0-9," GCMS head coach Cindy Petersen said.
The Falcons' lone winner was Payton Beach, who defeated Audrey Horn 6-3, 6-0 in the No. 6 singles match.
"Payton did a great job of getting her serves in and moving her opponent around on the court," Petersen said.
Jessica Mueller lost 1-6, 6-2, 10-7 to Makayla Horn in the No. 3 singles match and Summer Roesch lost 2-6, 6-3, 10-7 to Nora Kelley in the No. 4 singles match.
"(Assistant) coach (Cortney) Davis and I were pleased to see how much closer our matches were against St. Thomas More from just two weeks ago," Petersen said. "The girls are starting to get in sync with their games and playing very well right now. Their effort last night was 100 percent. Our goal is turn it around in our next match against Watseka on Thursday and come home with a team win."
