Redhawk tennis put on a show against the Reedy Lions on Tuesday night at The Nest, winning 12-7 with girls’ singles and doubles going undefeated. This marks the second consecutive victory for the tennis team, which is currently sitting in a good position to make the playoffs.

Sitting with a 3-1 record, head coach Erica Dopson is still looking for improvement among her players.

“Going undefeated is really hard to do in this district,” she said. “I’m looking for our players to just step up and fight in doubles and make sure that they’re closing points.”

The current emphasis of the team seems to be placed on finishing once ahead and for junior Jimmy Cheung, that means one thing.

“Tiebreakers, easy,” he said. “We just need to be consistent and chase that dub.”
