D.H. Conley posted tennis wins on three consecutive days last week, and the Vikings lost just one of the 27 matches played.

The Vikings started the run with consecutive victories over against South Central, 8-1 last Tuesday and 9-0 on Wednesday, and then they downed Eastern Wayne 9-0 on Thursday.

In that impressive span, Madison Cullipher, Brooke Sullivan, Mary Beth Cole and Meghan Jones were all a perfect 3-0 in singles play. The doubles tandems of Cole and Carey Woodward and Lexi Lenker and Jenna Lee also went undefeated. 

J.H. Rose 6, South Central 3

Pradnya Akula was the sole winner in singles play for the Falcons; she defeated Rose’s Ginger Evans 6-2, 6-4.

SC fought back in doubles play, winning two of three matchups. Akula and Woodley defeated Evans and Jones for the Falcons’ first doubles win, 9-7. At No. 2, Eagerton and Johnson defeated Goldman and Richardson, 8-6. Rose took the third matchup with Shah and Anna Vaughn defeating Hooks and Taryn Wall, 8-0.

Conley coasted to a sweep on the strength of 25-16 and 25-17 game victories on Saturday.
