UP tennis scores trump Raiders | Archives
The Union Pines tennis team won the best two singles matches of Tuesday’s showdown with Richmond County without breaking a sweat. However, the rest of the match was a different story as the Lady Vikings had to fend off the Lady Raiders to claim a 6-3 win.
Unusually for Sandhills Athletic Conference games not involving Pinecrest, Union Pines (9-1. 8-1 SAC) found themselves needing to win the double to earn the team victory. Richmond trailed just 4-2 after singles with two narrow wins in singles matches 4 and 6. The Lady Vikings won the best two doubles matches to win.
