Westview closed out its 2013 regular season in tennis on Thursday with some mixed results against Milan and then closed their postseason on the opening day of the District 14A-AA Tournament.
The Lady Chargers fared a little better than the Chargers did against Milan with the girls earning a 4-3 team win, while the boys dropped the match by that same score in last week’s regular season finale.
Then, in the league tourney action at Union City, no Charger player managed to get into the quarterfinals in Monday’s play.
Greenfield took on Camden for the second time in less than week with better results as the Lady Yellowjackets blanked the Lady Lions 7-0.
At the league tournament, Dan McDonough had the only win for the Charger boys with an 8-0 verdict over Gibsin County’s Houston Cunningham in the opening round.
The second round saw McDonough drop an 8-3 decision to No. 6 seed Gunner McRae of Crockett County and Ethan Plunk drop an 8-0 outcome to top-seeded James Vaughn of Ripley.
Ethan Batchelor and Mason Capps suffered an 8-0 setback to No. 2 seed Jacob Triplett and Devin King of Union City in the second round of the boys’ doubles bracket.
Natalie Hurst and Laura Ferrer moved past the first round in the girls’ singles tourney, Hurst beating Jessamy Moore of Gibson County 8-2 and Ferrer knocking out Haley Branum of Trenton 8-3.
The second round saw Ferrer drop an 8-6 decision to Maddie Hutcherson of Halls and Hurst lose 8-2 to Rachel Clift of Dyersburg.
In doubles play, Westview’s teams advanced one round before losing.
Anabelle Cormia and Chelsea Thweatt downed Olivia Gibson and Chelsea Holley of Trenton 8-0 before dropping an 8-2 decision to Lydia Hubbard and Holly Johnson of Covington.
Jasmine Evans and Jessica Evans claimed an 8-1 win over Sable Estes and Kennedi Morris of Trenton but then fell 8-3 to Shelbie Hurt and Haley Hurt of Halls in the quarterfinals.
