The first-year Gering girls’ tennis team got off to a solid start by scoring a split, including a victory over Scottsbluff, in the Bulldogs’ first varsity action Tuesday at a triangular in Alliance.

Gering edged the Bearcats 5-4 after falling to host Alliance 7-2 under coach Justin Reinmuth.

Savannah Walker scored two wins at No. 4 singles in pacing Gering. She edged Scottsbluff’s Stacae Pauli in helping the Bulldogs capture their first dual win. Walker also downed Alliance’s Bailey O’Connor, 8-3.

Gering‘s other singles victories in defeating Scottsbluff came from Samantha Gutherless at No. 2, Jessica Helt at No. 5 and Katlyn Wagoner at No. 6. Gutherless shut out Scottsbluff’s Christina Vilareal 8-0, while Helt downed Aubrey Straub 8-1 and Wagoner held off Paige Corr, 8-6.

The Bulldogs’ No. 2 doubles team of Marlee Lupher and Katie Collins scored two victories on the day, including an 8-2 win over Scottsbluff’s Sarah Cloud and Anna Wiebe.

In addition to Walker’s No. 4 singles win against Alliance, Lupher and Collins teamed to defeat O’Connor and Cayla Tritle 8-2.

The Bulldogs have until next Wednesday to prepare for a pair of road duals. Gering will play at Kearney Catholic on Wednesday and then at Lexington on Thursday. Gering then has its first home action on April 16 in another triangular against Scottsbluff and Alliance.
