While the North Posey Lady Vikings were busy putting away the field in the North Posey Invitational on Saturday, down in the southern end of the county, the Mount Vernon Lady Wildcats were doing the same in their own invitational.
The end results of these tournaments could make this year’s sectional a very interesting one for Posey County schools.
This week alone, the Lady Vikings dominated potential sectional foe Evansville Central while easily outslugging Evansville Reitz at the Viking Invite. That leaves Mount Vernon, who the Lady Vikings fell to due to an injury earlier this month. Liz Watlavik is out of the season after injuring her knee in one of the first points of the match. In tennis, there is no substituting once the match has begun. Mount Vernon won that match 3-2.
The only ‘unknown quantity’ left in the sectional field is Mater Dei, who the Vikings will be facing this week, before heading into the meat of the Pocket Athletic Conference schedule.
The results of this weekend’s North Posey Girls Tennis Invitational were North Posey 23, South Knox 14, Evansville Reitz 11, South Spencer 7.
