SWEETWATER — The Brownwood High tennis team improved to 2-0 in District 5-4A action, and 12-5 for the fall campaign, with a 15-4 victory over Big Spring here Thursday.
The Lions swept all nine matches — six singles and three doubles — to lead the charge.
In singles competition, victories belonged to No. 1 Josh Dean (6-0, 6-1 over Brandon Hilario), No. 2 Jeremy Roberson (6-1, 6-0 over Blake Marshall), No. 3 Gabe Hinojosa (6-1, 6-0 over Sean Rios), No. 4 Tyler Langley (6-0, 6-1 over Casey Shubert), No. 5 Michael Gomez (6-4, 6-3 over Ed Urias) and No. 6 James Bautista (6-1, 6-2 over Blade Franks).
Collecting wins in doubles action were the No. 1 team of Roberson and Dean (6-0, 6-2 over Hilario and Marshall), the No. 2 team of Hinjosa and Matthew Thompson (6-0, 6-2 over Rios and Shubert) and the No. 3 team of Langley and Gomez (6-1, 6-1 over Urias and Piloto).
“This was one of our better efforts of the year on the boys side and we took care of business tonight,” said Brownwood tennis head coach Mark Davis.
For the Lady Lions, doubles victories were earned by the tandems of No. 1 Piper Barberie and Kendra Renfroe (6-2, 6-2 over Morgan Parnell and Daisi Salazar) and No. 3 Maritza Pargas and McKinzie Adkins (6-2, 6-2 over Robbie Downing and Fabi Medina).
Picking up girls singles wins were No. 2 Barberie (6-2, 6-4 over Downing), No. 4 Adkins (6-1, 6-0 over Braylee Cantu) and No. 6 Cameron Hill (6-4, 6-4 over Medina).
“The Big Spring girls team was tough,” Davis said. “We could have easily lost all three of the girls doubles matches, but they stepped up and had a little more fight in them than Big Spring did tonight.”
Brownwood also won the mixed doubles contest, as the win was claimed by Cade Rector and Heather Williams (6-3, 7-5 over Franks and Rogers).
