So far, the freshman member of the Holscher household has done a pretty good job of keeping the name strong in opponents’ minds this season.

Zoey Holscher, whose sister Maddie graduated last year after finishing at state in the quarterfinals, led the Bearcats with two victories at No. 1 singles Tuesday in a triangular at Alliance that included Gering.

Unfortunately for the Bearcats, they dropped both duals, 7-2 to Alliance and 5-4 to Gering. Nevertheless, early-season experience never hurts, especially when the sometimes unpredictable weather this spring finally cooperated like it did Tuesday.

Holscher dropped just one game in the two matches, scoring an 8-1 win over Caitlin Tritle of Alliance and shutting out Gering’s Marlee Lupher 8-0.

Scottsbluff’s No. 2 doubles team of Sarah Cloud and Anna Wiebe scored an 8-6 victory over Tritle and Bailey O’Connor for the Bearcats’ only other win against Alliance.

In the dual against Gering, Scottsbluff also had victories by Akacia Kraus at No. 3 singles, Kraus and Rachel Madden at No. 1 doubles and Stacae Pauli and Christina Villarreal at No. 3 doubles.

Kraus and Madden qualified for state last year on separate doubles teams and lead the young Bearcats under coach Cassie Behnke.

Scottsbluff’s next action will be a pair of duals in Kearney on Wednesday, with the Bearcats facing Kearney High and Kearney Catholic. They then will be in the Lexington tourney on Thursday.
