Being well-rested paid off.
Playing its first tennis match in nearly two weeks against a team that had seen plenty of action in the previous several days, Greenfield’s girls squad claimed a 7-0 verdict over Westview at the UT Martin courts on Tuesday afternoon.
The Lady Yellowjackets finally got to play a tennis match after a two-week stretch with no matches. Westview, meanwhile, had played on Monday and the previous Thursday.
At the top seed, Lady ’Jacket Taylor Hatcher defeated Melissa Darroch 8-2.
No. 2 seed Kalee Kester-son of Greenfield beat Laura Ferrer by an 8-3 margin. At No. 3, Greenfield’s Kendal Cook won by a like margin over Westview’s Natalie Hurst, 8-3.
Lady Yellowjackets’ Callie Croom doubled Westview’s Jasmine Evans 8-4, while the fifth-seed match was a tight one with Greenfield’s Lauren Rush edging past Westview’s Madison Williams by a 9-7 score.
Other singles matches played that had no bearing on the overall match results had Ashton Pence beating Lady Chargers’ Jessica Evans 8-3 at No. 6, No. 7 Westview netter topping Greenfield’s Abby Huffstetler 8-3, and Savannah Ricketts of Greenfield victorious in her No. 8 singles match against Chelsea Thweatt 8-0.

Two more doubles matches were played for experience.
At No. 3, Rush and Pence stopped Williams and Evans 8-6, and at No. 4, the Westview duo of Cormia and Thweatt beat Darian Black and Shelby Smith 8-3.
