SAN ANGELO — The Brownwood High tennis team stretched its win streak to four matches as it squeaked past Midland Greenwood for a 10-9 victory Saturday.
“Greenwood was ready to play,” said Brownwood tennis head coach Mark Davis. “The match was really as close it looked on paper. It was a great match for our team.”
Brownwood (8-3) swept all three boys doubles matches and was able to withstand a late charge from Greenwood.
Notching doubles victories for the Lions were the No. 1 team of Matthew Thompson and Josh Dean (8-5 over Landon Day and William Chappel), the No. 2 team of Gabe Hinojosa and Jeremy Roberson (8-4 over Mason Elkins and Ben Hawley) and the No. 3 team of Michael Gomez and Tyler Langley (8-4 over Joaquin Sotelo and Tucker Bales).
The Lions also split their six singles matches with victories belonging to No. 3 Roberson (6-2, 6-2 over Sotelo), No. 4 Hinojosa (6-3, 6-3 over Elkins) and No. 5 Langley (6-3, 6-1 over Bales).
On the girls side, the No. 1 doubles team of Piper Barberie and Maritza Pargas tallied a victory (8-4 over Giselle Monterrosa and Katie Ross).
Meanwhile, Lady Lions singles players in the win column included No. 1 Kendra Renfroe (6-3, 6-0 over Veronica Palomino), No. 3 Barberie (6-2, 6-2 over Lexi Knapp) and No. 5 McKenzie Atkins (6-1, 6-3 over Kelsey Robbins).
“McKenzie, a freshman, was moved up to the No. 5 spot and came through big with the 10th point,” Davis said. “It was a good day for Brownwood tennis.”
The Lions and Lady Lions return to action at 4 p.m. Thursday when they host Killeen High.
