Comets open district play





Lady Comets score district tennis win / April 14, 2010
The Halifax County High School girls tennis team scored a win over district opponent William Fleming on Monday with a perfect 9-0 score. Jessica Palmer led the team at the number one position with a 6-0, 6-0 shutout. Monica Puckett playing at number six also scored a shutout. No Comets lost more than three games as they won all six singles and three doubles in straight sets.

The win improves the teams record in district play to 2-1 and makes the upcoming match with Patrick Henry more important as the teams will be battling for second place in the district standings. Coach Greg Donner was pleased with the outing and is hopeful of keeping up the teams winning ways. “ We were a little off our games because of the spring break and it was nice to get back to hitting again,” Donner said.

The Comets are in Lynchburg this weekend for the Heritage invitational tournament and that the competition should be a good opportunity to tune up the teams gage for the remainder of the district season.
