Without Player of the Year Sona Hussian at No. 1 singles, Pennsbury tennis coach Lindsay Gebeau has been forced to scramble the Lady Falcons lineup.
Junior Steph Woloshin is now playing No. 1 singles while seniors Emily Zygmunt is playing No. 2 singles and Hana Mujkovic is playing third singles.
Still, the Falcons haven't lost a lot without Hussian, going 9-1 overall, 5-0 in the Suburban One National League. Pennsbury's primary competition in the National League is Council Rock North and Abington.
On Sept. 12, Pennsbury nipped North, 4-3 and was tied 3-3 with the Galloping Ghosts on Sept. 20 when the match was called on account of darkness. The first doubles match involving junior Julia Gambell and senior Chloe Philip was headed to a third-set tiebreaker when the bout was suspended. The SONL duel with Abington is scheduled to be completed Friday, Sept. 27.
Gambell and Philip are 6-3 on the season while the second doubles team of sophomores Samantha Purdy and Megan Berard are 8-3 thus far.
Seniors Emily Doron and Shelby Hawk are 10-1 at third doubles while seniors Jess Lee and Valerie Belov are 7-1 at fourth doubles.
Hussian sustained a season-ending knee injury in an early season matchup with non-league Central Bucks West.
