West drops conference tennis opener

In Dublin on Wednesday, the visiting Dark Horses of Clinton defeated West Bladen 8-1 in the Four County Conference opener for both teams.

The loss drops the Knights to 7-4 overall and 0-1 in conference, while Clinton remains spotless at 8-0, 1-0.

In singles action, West Bladen’s Victor Jacome was handed his first loss of the season in a tough match at No. 1. Jacome fell by a 1-6, 6-4 and 10-7 verdict as Clinton swept all six singles matches.

But Jacome got some measure of revenge, teaming with Matthew Bobby to win the No. 1 doubles match, 8-4, for the Knights lone point of the day.
