Cards roll over Phoenix

By Jackson Fuller -

WINSTON-SALEM — After suffering its first loss of the season, the East Surry tennis team bounced back in style on Wednesday with a dominating 9-0 win over Winston-Salem Prep.

All singles’ matches finished at 6-0, 6-0 for the Cardinals, with Haley Janelle receiving a forfeit win from the Phoenix.

East Surry coach Ashley Powell called upon some players outside her normal top six in the doubles’ portion of the match. Haley Gilley and Carson Payne won 8-1, while a team of Kaitlin Koons and Daphne Dodson rolled with an 8-0 victory.

The third-seeded doubles match was also a forfeit win for the Cardinals. East Surry improved to 7-1 and 3-1 in the conference with the win, and its next match will be at home against Atkins on Monday.
