HOLLYWOOD CROSSROADS -- Eastern Wayne, despite a stellar outing from Dylan March, fell on the road to ECC 3A foe D.H. Conley by a 6-2 count on Wednesday.

March paired with Walker Davis to file an 8-4 doubles victory over Will Whitehurst and Drew Varnell, then defeated Whitehurst, 6-3, 6-4, at No. 1 singles.

Eastern Wayne(0-1) dropped one other doubles match, and five of six in singles.

"To play the three-time consecutive conference champ the first match at their place was no easy task," EW coach Craig Hassell said. "Conley has a great program and graduated many players from last year, but has reloaded... we just came up short in several matches that could have gone our way."

Individual match results are as follows:
