Unbeaten Bears blank Rams

The Mount Airy Granite Bears mauled four opponents in three days to improve to 15-0 on the season.

Three of Mount Airy’s victories between Sept. 18-21 came against Northwest 1A Conference opponents, moving the two-time defending conference champions to 8-0 in league play.

The Bears also took down a previously unbeaten team in nonconference action.

Sept. 18 at Atkins

Mount Airy went on the road and took down previously undefeated Atkins 7-1.

With the Bears’ victory over the Camels, only 20 undefeated tennis teams remain in the entire N.C. High School Athletic Association.

Mount Airy clinched the overall match with five wins in singles, then won No. 1 and No. 3 doubles. The No. 2 doubles match started but did not finish due to no lights at the courts.

Sept. 19 at South Stokes (double header)

Mount Airy and South Stokes’ first meeting on Aug. 24 was cut short by rain, so the teams played a double header on Sept. 19. The Granite Bears and Sauras picked up the first match where it left off, then began the second soon after.

The double header was possible because South Stokes only had three players. Each overall match consisted of three singles contests and one doubles match.
