Green Hope women’s varsity tennis won their second round match in the 4A state playoffs with ease on Thursday, defeating New Bern high school on the road with a final score of 9-0.
Green Hope continues to dominate the competition after losing only two times in the regular season. The Falcons swept Jack Britt high school in the first round and then routed the New Bern Bears yesterday, who came into the matchup with an impressive 18-1 record.
Senior Captain Ellie Ackerson comments, “I think we played really well in our last two matches, and we’re looking forward to the next round.”
