Comet boys tennis down Prince Edward

SoVaNow.com / March 18, 2009
The HCHS boys’ varsity tennis team downed Prince Edward, 6-3, in non-district action Tuesday.

Here are the singles’ results:

1. Chris Moore (HC) def. Jarid Steward 6-2, 6-1

2. Jacob Trent (HC) d. Lamont Redd 6-1, 6-3

3. Pat Barnes (HC) d. Aritz Aidecoa 6-1, 6-0

4. Ralph Tuck (HC) d. Zach Toone 6-4, 4-6, (10-6)

5. Robert Garcia d. John Michael Parnell (HC) 7-5, 6-7 (2-7), (10-8)

6. Ryan Steward d. Tayler Tepper (HC) 6-1, 6-0

Here are the doubles results:

1. Moore/Barnes (HC) d. J. Steward/Redd 6-1, 6-1

2. Trent/Tuck (HC) d. Artiz/Toone 8-3

3. Garcia/Steward d. Ryan Dixon/Stephen Talbott (HC) 8-1

Exhibition action:

Taylor Elliott (HC) d. Keiston France 7-6 (10-6), 6-2

Parnell/Tepper (HC) d. Matt Breckenridge/Matt Covington 8-2

“We were glad to go out and pick up that first win of the regular season. Overall, Coach Taylor and I were strongly impressed with the effort. The top of the ladder played as solid as they did in the exhibition, and Ralph really helped us by picking up that win in singles to make the score 4-2 going into doubles. He lost both matches to Toone last season, so it was good to see him get over that hump.

“We looked a little rusty at times, but much of that was due to the lack of outdoor practice the last few days due the weather. Hopefully we will learn from our errors today and play more solid in our next two matches this week,” said coach David Riddle.

The Comets are 1-0 and had a match at home with Martinsville yesterday.
