The Union City girls had no troubles. UC’s boys made things a little more interesting.
Both had the same results, though, as the girls claimed a 7-0 decision and the boys win 4-3 in prep tennis action over Peabody at Trenton on Tuesday afternoon.
The Lady Tornadoes posted six 8-0 shutout wins in their seven wins with Maddie King, Tara Elam, Jenna Miller and Ellen Bearden all posting two wins on the day.
Union City’s boys split their two doubles matches and then picked up the team win with three relatively easy singles matches as Sam Critchlow, Devin King and Parker Dotson provided the slim margin.
King and Elam blanked Olivia Gibson and Chelsea Holley at the top doubles spot, while Bearden and Miller did the same to Haley Branum and Sable Estes at No. 2.
That 8-0 score then showed up in four singles matches as King knocked off Branum, Miller topped Gibson, Bearden beat Kennedi Morris and Alex Parks took out Holley.
Elam’s win over Hannah Bridges was just as quick, posting an 8-1 verdict.
King and Jacob Triplett topped Drew Butler and Noah Allen 8-4 at the No. 1 boys’ doubles spot, and King shut out Allen at the singles third seed.
Sam Critchlow stopped Eli King 8-0 at No. 2, and Dotson put away Garrett Lawson 8-1 at the No. 5 spot.
The Lady Twisters are now 9-1, having posted their seventh 7-0 win, while the boys are 8-2. Union City will host Westview on Thursday, play beginning at 3:30 p.m.
