The Apache netters brought an end to the regular season with a 6-0 win, defeating the Prairie View Spartans.
"The tennis program at PVA is in the beginning stages. The coach is developing the players with the proper fundamentals; that is a slow-progressing occurence. For each of us who are members of the district, we have been fortunate to have moved past that stage. We are simply a more experienced team with seasoned players," commented coach Wayne Orr. "Nevertheless, our wins finalized a few positions for the upcoming North Tournament, which begins Monday in Cleveland, MS."
Girls' Singles - Amelia Christy completed an undefeated season at No. 1 with a 6-0, 6-0 defeat of Mykela Roberts. At the No. 2 position, Catherine Willis defeated Payton Simone 6-0, 6-0.
"Both of our singles players will be competing in the North Tournament. We will be an unknown factor in the AA ranks, having competed in Class A for the past two years," added Orr.
Girls' Doubles - Eleanor Gilbert and Madison Lemoine, playing the No. 1 position, defeated Taylor Book and Jeri Harper 6-2, 6-4.
"With the win there is a possibility of their qualifying for the North Tournament. Their record will be compared to those of our other district opponents," stated Orr. At the No. 2 position, the duo of Bridget Cone and Abigail Gilbert defeated Sheridan May and Rebekah Lenard 6-0, 6-0.
Mixed Doubles-Lexie Martin and Graham Lemoine defeated Harriot Adams and Ashton Lang by scores of 6-0, 6-0.
"I have been very pleased with the progress of this second-year duo. At times we execute well; it is those times that feed our desire to win. Having lost only two matches this season, they are poised to make a good showing in the North Tournament," noted Orr.
Boys' Doubles - Johnny Law Flournoy and John Curtis Brown won by forfeit; PVA did not field a doubles team.
"These two boys have won their last two matches and were eager for the chance for another win. Even though they did not play, the win was welcomed," stated Orr.
