KENLY— The No. 1 team out of the Eastern Plains Conference dismantled the visiting West Bladen girls tennis team on Wednesday in the first round of the state’s Class 2-A dual team playoffs, sending the Lady Knights home with a 5-1 loss.

West Bladen completed its team season with an overall record of 16-3 under the first season for coach Mary White. The Lady Panthers improved to 18-2.

Wednesday’s match was decided after the six singles matches were played, with Savannah Lee giving the Lady Knights their only point of the day with a win over Abby Morris in the No. 2 singles match.

North Johnson sealed the match by taking the other five singles contests, making doubles competition moot.

West Bladen’s No. 1 doubles team of Conner Brisson and Lee will compete on Friday in the first round of the state’s Class 2-A Mid-East Regionals in Goldsboro.

Brisson and Lee have put together a 7-4 record this season and were crowned the Three Rivers Conference Tournament champions earlier in the month.
