’Jacks beat Takoma Park for 2-0 tennis start

Posted on Friday, April 30, 2004

WYE MILLS, April 9 – If this is how the Skipjacks play short-handed, just wait until they have their full team.

Chesapeake College’s co-ed tennis team beat visiting Montgomery College/Takoma Park, 4-1, Friday afternoon despite having to forfeit the men’s singles match. The Skipjacks improved to 2-0, following up nicely on their season-opening victory against Hagerstown Community College.

Chesapeake’s mixed doubles team of Bob Plackett and Deborah McAllister easily improved to 2-0, rolling to a 6-0 and 6-0 victory against Jennifer Clavell and Hosin Ali.

"They’re good," Chesapeake head coach Curtis Blouch said of his mixed tandem. "They completely dominated the match."

Becky Gleockler wore down Veronica Tetuh, 6-4 and 6-1, in the women’s singles match.

"Becky started off a little slow, but she really picked it up," said Blouch. "By the end she looked very good."

Blouch, whose team was missing several players Friday, was pleased with the Skipjacks’ effort.

"I thought we played well," said the first-year head coach.

Takoma Park forfeited the other two matches. Chesapeake’s father-son pairing of Donald and Curtis Blouch claimed a point in men’s doubles, while Stephanie Settle and Heather LaNeve picked up the win in women’s doubles.
