Rams down Demons

SNOW HILL -- The Greene Central women's tennis team triumphed at Nos. 2 and 3 doubles, and shocked state-ranked Wilson Fike 5-4 on Monday afternoon.

The second-seeded tandem of Elizabeth McLawhorn-Lauren Carraway edged the Demons' Mallory Short-Meredith Pruden 8-5. The No. 3 duo of Abby Sugg-Samantha Taylor doubled up Kate Woodard-Katelyn Suggs 8-4.

"Lauren was a key player for us today again in singles and doubles," said Greene Central head coach Donald Clark. "She is fast becoming a leader on this team despite being our youngest player. She goes out and does what she is asked every for the good of the team."

Fike, ranked No. 5 in the N.C. High School Tennis Coaches Association Class 3-A poll, suffered its first regular-season defeat in the last two years. The Golden Demons exited 9-1 overall.

The Rams' Puja Patel rose to 4-0 in singles play with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Mary Catherine Prince. Teammates Sugg and Carraway also posted straight-set victories to create a 3-3 deadlock in singles.

"Puja turned in a fantastic performance today against one of the state's premier 3-A players," said Clark. "She dominated the first set with her groundstrokes, but I was more pleased with her comeback in the second set; particularly the changes she made in her game late in the second set."

Greene Central (8-2) entertains unbeaten Rocky Mount, ranked No. 8 in the NCHSTCA 3-A poll, on Wednesday.
