The Mathews High School tennis team won three more matches in recent action to improve to 12-1 overall. The team picked up victories over Rappahannock (7-2) on May 3, Middlesex (9-0) on Thursday, and West Point.

Friday’s game against West Point was still considered a win, although the contest was called for rain after five matches were completed, because Mathews had swept them all. The Devils and Pointers will resume this contest later to help determine the district’s singles and doubles champions.

Morgan Sears, the Lady Devils top-seeded singles player, won all three of her matches this past week, dominating her Rappahannock and Middlesex opponents and posted an exciting 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win against the top-seeded Lady Pointer.

Amy and Aly Collins, the #2 and #3 seeds for Mathews, had singles wins against Middlesex and West Point. Both were sidelined for the Rappahannock contest in singles play, although they did team up at #1 seed doubles for a win. They also won as a duo against Middlesex.
