Scoring points for the Lady Jags (15-2 overall, 8-0 region) were Garrett Mixon and Marge Copeland (8-1) at No. 1 doubles and Cora Pursley and Jessica Howell (8-2) at No. 2 doubles as well as Caroline Hearn (8-2) at No. 3 singles.
“This was a big match for us today,” said SHS head coach Greg Crawford.
The Spalding High boys team also scored a win, 5-0.
Scoring points for the Jags (14-3 overall, 8-0 region) were Brett Piland (8-5) at No. 1 singles, Hez Apperson (8-4) at No. 2 singles, and Colby Willis (8-0) at No. 3 singles. Spalding also swept doubles where Daniel Blake and Andrew Winter (8-0) won at No. 1 doubles and James Dunaway and Barrett Lavender (8-0) won at No. 2 doubles.
Spalding High continues its season with matches Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. SHS hosts Mary Persons in a non-region match on Monday before hitting the road for region matches Tuesday at Stockbridge and Wednesday at Riverdale.
The region tournament, originally scheduled for April 8-10, has been moved to April 16-17 at The Beach in Jonesboro because of the number of schools in the region that will be on spring break the week of April 8-10.
“Only Upson-Lee and us were not on break,” said Crawford.
