Richmond junior Bailey Busse captured the lone Lady Spartan victory Thursday afternoon at Grain Valley. However, it was a milestone win for Richmond’s No. 1 singles player as she chalked up career win No. 86 to set the new school mark for singles victories.
Busse set the new standard by defeating Nathalia Barr 8-1 in a rematch of last fall’s MRVC Tournament finals – also won by Busse.
Grain Valley owned the rest of the afternoon as the Lady Spartans fell to 4-3 overall. Kalynn Persell lost at No. 2 singles to Kayelee Smith 3-8, and Grain Valley won the next three by shutouts. Lauren Barger lost to Darby Scharfenkamp at No. 3, Cora List fell to Hannah Wiechmann at No. 4 and Sami Miller lost to Chelsea Gabriel all by 0-8 finals.
