Vikings win abbreviated match over Raiders
Northern Vance followed Tuesday’s season-opening loss to Kerr-Vance with a 6-0 win over Southern Vance Wednesday at Fox Pond Park.
The doubles matches were in progress when storms rolled into the area, forcing the teams to call it a day.
Rachel Riddle, Caroline Oakley, Immani Simmons, Jazman White, Blair Kimbrell, and Savanah Hester scored singles wins for Northern, which visits Person Friday.
“We are so young,” said Vikings’ coach Jeff Arthurs. “And all the new folks are really just working hard and getting better every day. I’ve been really pleased with that.”
Southern was playing its first match of the season after Monday’s contest against Bunn was postponed.
“It gave them a little practice,” said Raiders’ head coach Christine Francis. “I saw some good things, but we have a lot to work on still.”
Southern returns to action Tuesday against Bunn.
