Comet boys remain perfect in tennis / April 15, 2019
Halifax County High School boys’ tennis is 10-0 after a 9-0 defeat of Prince Edward County High School.

“This was the first time this year that we got the entire varsity squad into one of the ladder matches, and they certainly did not let us down. The whole group played impressive tennis today and actually played better than we did the first time against Prince Edward. We always stress playing better the second time we meet a team so we were happy to see that,” said Comet coach David Riddle.

“The guys are continuing to do what works well for them. If they drop a few games, they rebound strongly after that. We are going to use spring break to continue to get work in and come back strong to finish out the last two weeks of the regular season and carry some momentum into the postseason,” said Riddle.

This was a non-district match. Halifax is 6-0 in the Piedmont District.
