Rocky Mount's girls tennis tops Fike, Hunt

From staff reports

ROCKY MOUNT – The Fike girls tennis team continued to battle through injuries Thursday afternoon against the 3-A Big East Conference’s No. 2 squad Rocky Mount.

The day before, Rocky Mount eased past Wilson Hunt 6-3 in Big East play.

And while the Golden Demons played tough, they couldn’t topple the Gryphons in falling 8-1.

“It would be nice to go a whole week with everyone healthy,” Fike coach Lee Matthews said. “Right now we have a player with an injured back, one with a hurt shoulder, another with a hurt knee and wrist. When four of your top six are suffering, it makes it real tough.”

Liz Short nearly pulled out a victory at No. 2 singles, holding a match point in the second set at 5-4, but ending up falling to Rocky Mount’s Tanner Brice 2-6, 7-5, 10-4.

“Liz played a great match,” Matthews said. “It was a heart-breaking loss for her. She’s continued to play better and we can build on that.”

The Demons (6-10 overall, 2-6 Big East) got their lone win at No. 2 doubles as Parker Daniel and Bryson Schmidt teamed up to beat Alison Binkley and Katie Mizelle 9-8 (7-4). Rocky Mount improved to 11-2 overall and 6-2 within the Big East.

Fike will be back in action at home on Tuesday against Northern Nash. Rocky Mount (12-2, 6-2) travels Southern Nash.
