CONIFER — Katherine Hardy didn’t want to play a third set. Up in sets 1-0, but facing double set point in a tiebreak of the second set, it looked like she might have to.
Hardy, though, survived the two set points and came back to win the tiebreak 9-7, securing her match 6-2, 7-6 over Conifer’s Kirstin Hafeman in the No. 1 singles battle. The win helped propel the Lady Cougars to the team victory over host Conifer by a score of 6-1 on April 4.
