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

Rose took all but one singles match in a match last Thursday as Ella Jones defeated Sam Eagarton 3-6, 6-2, 10-2; Jayme Goldman defeated Sam Woodley 6-1, 7-6 (6-3); Cecelia Richardson defeated Sarah Johnson 6-1,6-3; Mary Grace Smith beat Kim Hooks 6-1, 6-2 and Etka Shah topped Beatriz Duran-Magna 7-5, 6-4.

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.

Rose will travel to take on Southern Wayne today.

The Vikings (13-0, 5-0) will travel to face Wake Forest on Wednesday.

Zach Mitchell added an insurance goal just after Forrest to wrap up the win. Goalie Dandre Evan recorded the shutout.


D.H. Conley 2, Currituck 0

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