The Woodland girls tennis team had to fight and claw for every point Wednesday afternoon in a tough battle against Region 7-AAAAA foe Hiram.
Despite coming up short in a pair of three-setters on the singles play side, the Wildcats picked up a 3-2 win over the Hornets to stay perfect in region play.
Breanna Shook earned the only singles win for Woodland. The Line 2 player landed a 6-2, 6-4 victory, while Line 1’s Becky Wesley and Line 3’s Kayla Gayles each won the middle of three sets in hard-fought matches.
In doubles action, Line 1 produced another absolutely thrilling match. Emma Savage and Eryn Gentry won 6-2, 6-7 (2-7), 6-2 for a vital point. Monterya Morrow and Abby Spaulding didn’t have a straight-forward time, but the Line 2 pairing managed to grab a 6-4, 6-3 victory.
Woodland is now 4-0 in region, matching the unblemished mark for the boys, who had already faced Hiram this season. Both teams will be in action Tuesday against Cass at Hamilton Crossing.
