“Deuce” was not kind to the Janesville Craig girls tennis team Thursday afternoon.

Madison West survived all the close matches and swept past the Cougars 7-0 in Big Eight Conference action.

“Actually, just about every single match was at deuce,” Craig coach Steve Mickelson said. “There were so many long points at deuce, but we couldn’t finish.”

Both Allison Grund, the Cougars’ No. 3 singles player, and Bethany Laatsch, the No. 4 singles player, suffered their first conference losses.

Grund lost 6-3, 6-3, while Laatsch lost 6-2, 7-5.

Craig is off until it plays Madison Memorial next Thursday.
