Stallions clinch, Whiteville takes big step in Boys Tennis


South Columbus defeated St. Pauls 8-1 to clinch the Three Rivers Conference Boys Tennis title Monday. The Stallions are undefeated, 12-0 overall and 10-0 in conference. St. Pauls drops to 6-4 and now trails Whiteville for second place by one match.

Whiteville took a huge step towards the #1 1A seed from the TRC by defeating East Columbus 5-4. The Gators defeated Whiteville by a 5-4 score March 15. Whiteville is 7-3 with two matches remaining (Red Springs and South Columbus). East Columbus is now 5-5 with two contests left (Fairmont and West Columbus). The Gators must win out and have Whiteville lose its remaining matches to force a tie. The first tiebreaker would be a one-match playoff prior to the TRC singles and doubles tournaments.

West Columbus evened their conference slate at 5-5 with a 6-3 win over Red Springs.

Wednesday, South Columbus swept Red Springs 9-0. East Columbus kept their mathematical chance of catching Whiteville alive with a 9-0 win over Fairmont. Hector Palacios, Devan Young and Nick Rogers swept #3, #4 and #5 singles by 6-0, 6-0 scores. West Columbus fell to St. Pauls 6-3.

Regular season play ends on April 24. The Three Rivers Conference singles and doubles tournament is scheduled for Thursday, April 27. The 1A will be held at Whiteville. The 2A will be played at St. Pauls.
