Westview takes wind out of Obion Central sails | Westview tennis

Westview’s Cara Burnham keeps her eye on the tennis ball during her team’s 4-3 victory over Obion Central.
Westview took the wind out of Obion Central’s sails on Tuesday.
With gusts doing bizarre things to tennis balls in flight, the Lady Chargers and their male counterparts battened down the hatches and came away victorious more times than not.
In the girls’ match, W’view claimed a 4-3 triumph.
On the boys’ side, the Chargers that took to the court (Ethan Plunk and Tanner Spencer) prevailed in their individual singles matches and in a doubles outing.
Obion Central only had three boys present for the match.
In other tennis action this week, the Westview ladies came up short in their bid to down Milan on Monday.
The Lady Chargers fell 7-0, but each match was decided by four or less games.
The Westview boys team, which has just two players on it, split in singles play and won its lone doubles match against the Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, the Green-field girls’ team claimed its 37th consecutive regular-season triumph — a 7-0 besting of Huntingdon — on Monday.
Westview hosts Trenton on Monday, while Green-field entertains Milan on Tuesday.
