Girls tennis productive at Magna Vista / April 17, 2017
Halifax County High School girls tennis enjoyed a productive visit to Magna Vista, taking a 6-3 win.

Halifax showed its strength with a crisp performance in singles, and its depth in winning the doubles portion.

“We had a very good trip to Magna Vista, taking the win 6-3, with everybody that traveled with us getting a chance to play,” said Comet coach Donna Hudson.

“We dominated the singles, winning 8-0 at 1 with Alyssa Conde, 8-3 at two with Savannah Reaves, and 8-1 at three with Kassidy Irby. Conde and Irby played with finesse, hitting hard and accurately against their opponents. Reaves struggled a little in the early part of her match, but kept her focus and won,” said Hudson.

“We had a loss at four, where RaeAnn Winegar lost to a very patient, determined opponent, 5-8. At five and six, Kendall Foushee and Amber Roane won easily, 8-1 and 8-0,” said Hudson.

“With the score at 5-1, we substituted for doubles. We moved Roane and Ashley Day into one. These two had been very strong together at Randolph Henry earlier in the week, and should have been able to handle the MV girls. They didn’t play as well as they had on Tuesday though, and lost 3-8. For two doubles we had Yasmine Ferrell and Ashley Collins. They played well but did not get the win either, losing 5-8. We did have a doubles win at three, where Dejah Britton and Summer Martin won 8-2,” said Hudson.

Halifax has some tennis activity this week, followed by a break, and then the Comets will have a rush of tennis later.

“We will play over spring break, on Tuesday against Bassett. Then we will be off until the following week, where we will be in a marathon four-game stretch. We will play away on Monday, be home on Tuesday, away on Wednesday, and home on Thursday.”
