This past week, the Windsor High School Lady Dukes tennis team improved to 10-3 on the season with wins against Surry and Southampton. The Dukes are undefeated in the TriRivers District, 10-0.

On Thursday, the Lady Indians played the Dukes closer than the 6-3 score would have suggested, as two of Windsor’s wins were by forfeit.

Waverli Taylor started the singles matches off right for Windsor, with a 6-3, 6-4 win against Marena Vick on the No. 1 court.

But Southampton’s Carrie Beale turned that around won the first set, 6-3, against Calli Barton. Barton turned that around and won the second one 6-4, but Beale picked up the tiebreaker 10-4.

Camryn Heikens of Southampton, after winning a tough first set, 6-4, defeated Hannah Seward readily in the second set 6-1.

TeQuila Williams and Lydia Hurst of Windsor easily won on the No. 4 and No. 5 courts, with Hurst defeating Crystal Picot in every game, 6-0, 6-0.

The No. 6 court was forfeited, as was No. 3 doubles.

Taylor and Barton were able to take Vick and Beale to 9-9, but the Southampton team earned the match during the tiebreaker 9-7.

Seward, teamed up with Hurst, got her revenge in doubles with an 8-5 win.

Windsor was in Surry and defeated the Lady Cougars 8-1, the only loss coming to a forfeit, on Wednesday.

The matches were by eight-game pro-set. The Doubles matches were readily won, including Taylor and Barton’s win on the No. 1 court. The Windsor pair didn’t yield a game to Vondala Saunders and Cierra Anthony, 8-0.

In Singles, Anthony played Barton as close as she could, but the Lady Dukes still picked up the No. 2 court win, 8-5.

On Monday, they hosted the Lady Indians, and the results were similar — a 6-3 win for the Lady Dukes.

The Lady Dukes travelled to Petersburg Friday to face the Appomattox Regional Governor’s School Lady Dragons (7-5, 7-2 TriRivers District). Results were not available before deadline.
