FORTVILLE — In a span of 11 minutes, Mt. Vernon’s tennis season went from on life support to eyes wide open.

With three straight victories, the Marauders erased a 2-0 deficit against New Palestine to claim a sectional championship Friday.

The title battle began at 5 p.m. and, by 6:15, the Dragons were in control. Following straight-set wins by the No. 1 doubles team of Kylar Litteral and Kara Miller and Emily Kiefer at No. 3 singles, a victory at any of the other three positions would have given NP a second straight sectional crown.

But, MV’s Allie Schafer turned back Nicole Beaty at No. 1 singles, 6-1, 7-5, after Beaty jumped ahead 5-4 in the second set, threatening to extend the fight in their personal rubber match.
