KERNERSVILLE — Bishop McGuinness beat a short-handed Eagle tennis team 9-0 Thursday.
The Lady Villains came into the match with a 5-1 Northwest mark with their only loss coming to conference leader Mount Airy.
Surry Central was missing two of its six starters: Megan Gillespie and Abby Samuels. That made two players move up a step in competition and brought two others in off the bench.
The Lady Eagles were the same at the top two spots with Savannah Wilson and Marlee Wilmoth.
Wilson fell to Kyndall Cortes 6-0, 6-1. Wilmoth lost to Morgan Auger 6-2, 6-0.
Kennedy Dockery took Gillespie’s third spot and lost to Adaire Hudson 6-1, 6-1.
Mikayla Cox moved up to Dockery’s seed and fell to Anna Owen 6-1, 6-2.
Sommer Chilton stepped into the starting lineup and lost to Megan McDowell 6-0, 6-0.
Cassie Hoge played in the sixth spot against Anna Petrangeli and fell 6-1, 6-2.
Coach Dennis Miller went a little deeper into his squad for doubles play.
Chilton and Hoge lost to Cortes and Owen 8-0.
Marlory Wilmoth and Oliva Fowler played the second spot against Petrangeli and Nicole Saia and lost 8-2.
Madison White and Stephanie Boone fell 8-2 to Lauren Andrysick and Rebekah Barrett.
Surry Central has three matches scheduled for next week. The Golden Eagles face the other Eagles when they travel to Wilkes Central Monday. Then they travel to North Surry on Tuesday and West Stokes on Thursday.
Bishop hosts East Surry on Tuesday, then gets a rematch with the Lady Bears in Mount Airy Thursday.
