Hershey 5, Mifflin County 0

LEWISTOWN – Mifflin County struggled against Hershey during senior night as the Huskies fell to the Trojans 5-0 in a Mid-Penn Conference girls tennis match Wednesday.

Despite the struggles, the Huskies made the Trojans battle for every single point in each of their respective matches throughout the day.

Afterwards Mifflin County were honoring their four seniors Aija Binder, Ella Knepp, Mackenna Yoder and Lindsay Wolfley.

“Well I’m hoping that they had a good time while they were here,”Huskies coach Glenn Kyle said. “Two of them, this is the first year they’ve ever played so I’m hoping they had a good time. And the ones that have been here for three years I’m hoping they feel like they’ve invested in a good time with us.”

Senior Binder competed against Hershey’s Angelina Berg in the first singles matchup. Throughout the match, both Berg and Binder were trading shots after shots with one another having numerous vollies going on where one mistake could make all the difference.

But in the end, it was Berg who capitalized on her opportunities to score and managed to come out on top in both sets with the final of 6-1.

“I feel like I did pretty good compared to the opponent I had today from Hershey, she was pretty good and really experienced,” Binder said.

With it being her final season at Mifflin County, Binder looks back on her time and is extremely proud of her accomplishments with her tennis career with having started from the bottom and eventually found herself at the number one singles spot.

“I say I improved,” Binder said. “I went from being the fourteenth girl to the top player here and seeing my progression throughout the years is pretty impressive I think.”

Mifflin County will be back in action on Friday as the Huskies will travel to do battle with Chambersburg.
