The South Laurel Cardinals continue to roll in tennis action, sweeping Bell Co. Thursday.

Both the boys and girls won by identical 9-0 scores.

“These players continue to impress me,” boys’ coach Jonathan Green said. “Every time they step on the court, they take care of business and today was no different. Even through a late game and continuing threat of rain, they were businesslike and won out completely. It was a great day for the team; you can’t ask for anything else.”

In singles action, every Cardinal player won their match without dropping a game as they rolled over the Bobcats.

Coach Carol Johnson was just as pleased with her team’s win.

“The girls are playing outstanding tennis right now,” Johnson said. “They’re so solid, 1 through 6, and they just keep rolling. The match of day was between Adrianna Turner and Devin Enix—they kept going back and forth an she really made Adrianna dig deep to come up with the win (8-6). Matches like that are so good for you because with tournament time right around the corner, you’re not going to get anything easy. I’m so proud of these girls for coming out and getting the win today.”
