The DeForest girls tennis team opened its Badger North Conference dual schedule on Sept. 5 with a 7-0 shutout of host Portage.

“The girls did a nice job meeting their goals against Portage — moving the ball around, using angles and closing their matches effectively,” DeForest coach Kristin Pachal said. “I was very happy with how they played.”

The Norskies are off to a 7-4 start this season.

The Lady Norskies dominated the Warriors from start to finish. They won all seven matches in straight sets.

At No. 2 doubles, the Norskies’ Mikayla Beckman and Amber Fabian defeated Izzy Kruger and Molly Voigt 6-2, 6-2.

The Lady Norskies’ No. 3 duo of Ashley Hegarty and Annie Manzi completed the perfect night with a 6-0, 6-1 win over Ruby Atkinion and Allison Kallungi.
