Camanche slides past

BETTENDORF — All Kylie Vogel had to do was shake off the cobwebs.

Vogel won her match, 11-9, after falling behind 6-0 to Bettendorf’s Katie Melbourne in a dual that Camanche won, 6-3.

It was Vogel’s very first singles match of the season as she’s had to take care of some final touches from the basketball season that went to the regional final, and playing in some all-star games.

“Melbourne was playing harder than me, and I just started out slow,” Vogel said. “I wasn’t moving very well in the beginning.”

Vogel had some motivation throughout the match from coach Erin Montgomery.

“She kept telling me that I was good enough to hang in there and come back, and I just motivated myself that I could do the same,” Vogel said.

“It took her a little while to figure Katie out and once she did, you could tell the match was her,” Montgomery said. “I very happy with how hard she fought and never gave up.”

Vogel said she can be a hard hitter, but Montgomery had the firmer play starting out.

“She was hitting the ball extremely hard,” Vogel said. “I wasn’t hitting the ball hard when I know that I could.”

Vogel was the No. 1 golfer for the Indians on Thursday.

In the other singles matches, No. 2 Lindsey Grams won her match against Allison Miller 10-7. Brett Hilgendorf and Lexie Cundiff lost their matches 10-2, 10-0; Maddie Parker and Alexa Devries won their matches in the No. 4 and No. 5 slots 10-5 and 10-6.

Vogel returned in the doubles matches as she was paired with Grams, and they took care of business by winning over Melbourne and Miller 9-7.

“I feel like I have a really good connection with Lindsey,” Vogel said. “We’ve been playing together since fifth grade and the team chemistry on our team is great.”
