Avery Schu, who stepped up from second singles to fill in for Ashley Nelson, took two sets from Mia Coma. This was not a new experience for Schu, who played at number one singles all of last year and twice beat the #1 Hornet in the spring of 2016. Her record, from what I was sent was 3-8. This is a new venture for Coma. Last year she was part of a doubles team with Greta Deutsch and together they had an 11-6 record.

Schu was able to get runs on three straight serves to get her separation from Coma. On her fourth service she had a run of five which included four smashes, two that were nine strokers. That pushed the score to 12-6. While Schu  made use of the power game, Coma garnered her points at the net with seven drops. She had her own run of four to close the gap to 12-11, three points in the run of five (counting the side out) came on drops. The first set was notable in that both players avoided giving away points. There were only five points on errors in that set. Coma put up a run of five early in the second set to go up 7-3. The smash game was not available often in the second set, so Schu made use of the clear. The Eagle scored on four clears in a run of six to take a 13-10 lead. Coma’s third run gave her the lead 14-13 for the last time in the match. Schu bounced back with a run of six and never relinquished the lead after that (19-14). Unlike the first set, errors were a bigger part of the second set with Coma doubling her totals to eight. Coma actually came out ahead on winners in that set 15-13.

On Saturday, Nelson beat Coma.
