Comets sail past Martinsville / March 25, 2019

Halifax also found considerable success in doubles, as Salley/Redd and Grayson Balance/J.T. Francis each won 8-0. Irby and McAbee won by forfeit. Halifax improved to 4-0l, 2-0, Piedmont District.

“Martinsville was without a few players today, so we were able to shift some people up in singles and doubles to get the experience. And the guys all played strong at all the positions. We looked really solid at placing our shots today,” said coach David Riddle.

“This was the windiest day that we have played or practiced all year. It’s always difficult to know what is going to happen in those situations, because players have to adjust their game, especially the slicers. But they all adjusted well. That should help for the future matches when we have similar situations.

“We are continuing to do the things that work for us as individuals and cutting down on the unforced errors each time we step on the court,” said Riddle.
