Posted: Friday, April 26, 2013 12:00 pm
Greenfield’s tennis team continued its rebound after suffering its first defeat in 55 regular season matches last week with a pair of wins to begin the week.
The Lady Yellowjackets beat Sacred Heart out of Jackson 5-2 on Tuesday and won at Camden 5-2 on Monday.
Greenfield is one step closer to winning the District 13 A-AA regular season title once again after beating Camden. The Lady ’Jackets can still lose one of their two remaining matches and have a chance at winning the district.
Greenfield has a 3:30 match at Bethel today against Camden and a 4 p.m. match on Monday at Bethel against Huntingdon.
The Lady ’Jackets are the only team to beat Huntingdon this season.
Westview girls got back on the winning track with a 6-1 win over Trenton, while the boys went winless against the Golden Tide with a 7-0 decision.
The 13A-AA Tourna-ment will be May 4, and the 14A-AA will be May 4 and 6 at Union City.

Greenfield vs Camden
The Lady ’Jackets are hoping a 5-2 win over Camden will be the beginning of a new winning streak after seeing their 55-match win streak snapped by Haywood last week.
Head coach Bill McCall knows how hard it is to win week in and week out.
“With so many good tennis teams out there, it is hard to go undefeated in a season,” McCall said. “We are honored and are proud to have won so many matches for so long. To have a winning streak go from 2008 to 2013 is very unusual and may never happen again, so I am glad we were able to keep it going that long.”
Greenfield won three out of five singles matches and both doubles matches to get back in the winning column.
Allen won her singles match in the first spot 8-3, while Cook won 8-2 in the second spot. Kesterson came out on the winning side with an 8-2 score in the third spot. Croom and Rush both lost 8-5 in the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.
