The Woodland boys and girls tennis teams kept their undefeated starts to the Region 7-AAAAA schedule with convincing 5-0 wins over East Paulding Tuesday at home.
There were only two boys matches due to East Paulding forfeiting the remaining three lines. But the Wildcats didn’t need a technicality to help them, as Bryce VanOrder and Connor Gunnell decisively beat their Line 1 and 2 singles opponents with neither dropping a single game.
East Paulding fielded a full girls lineup and made Woodland earn its identical 5-0 victory. Becky Wesley emerged with a 6-2, 7-5 win on Line 1 singles; Breanna Shook posted a 6-1, 6-0 rout at Line 2; and Kayla Gayles picked up a 6-0, 6-4 triumph on Line 3.
In doubles play, Emma Savage and Eryn Gentry teamed up for a 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 win on Line 1, while Abigail Spaulding and Monterya Morrow cruised to a 6-0, 6-0 victory.
Woodland is now 4-0 in boys region contests, and the girls will get a chance to match that mark, when they host Hiram Wednesday. (The boys defeated Hiram to open the season.) Both teams will face Cass next Tuesday at Hamilton Crossing.
