The Lady Vandals traveled to Effingham on Friday to compete in the IHSA Sectional Tournament. Kiersten Dossett made it through an epic first round, nearly 3 hour match defeating Effingham’s Skylar Shafer, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-2. An exhausted Dossett then fell to the 5th seed, Solene Jaspard of Salem, 0-6 0-6. Hannah Blythe, the first seed, won her first matches, defeating Megan Hodge of Effingham-St.Anthony, 6-1, 6-1 and Anna Talley of Hillsboro, 6-2, 6-0. Those victories qualified Hannah for the state finals next week and put her into the sectional semi-final round Saturday morning in Effingham.
