DOBSON Surry Central picked up its first win of the season Tuesday, defeating West Stokes 8-1.
The Golden Eagles had little trouble with the Wildcats, sweeping each singles set, with senior Tara Dockery and Hunter Marion winning their respective matches 6-0, 6-0.
The Golden Eagles only loss of the day came in doubles, with Abby Samuels and Megan Gillespie losing 8-5 to Wests Madeline Shelton and Sabrina Webster.
I think they played great today, Central coach Dennis Miller of his teams effort Tuesday. Theyve played better at each match from our first match. We are concentrating much better on the ball and had much smoother strokes and I think tonight will help that a lot with our confidence.
Surry Central will next host Wilkes Central Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
