North Central gave first-year boys’ tennis coach Miranda Brown her first win as a high school head coach as the Knights tripped up Eau Claire, 5-1, in a non-region match played last Thursday night in Columbia.

 Playing at first singles for the Knights is Josh Bowers, who played a tight first set but pulled it out for a 6-4 win before taking the second set, 6-0, to complete the sweep. In what was the toughest set of the evening, NC’s Jake Crosby lost a narrow, 7-5, 6-4, decision at second singles.

The visiting Knights then took the next three singles pairings starting with Nathan Catoe, who won at third singles by identical 6-2 scores. Michael Rogers followed at fourth singles and came away a 6-2, 6-3 winner, while Gavin Oliver took a fifth singles contest which was shortened in an effort to beat out the impending weather and darkness in an 8-0 pro set.

The NC second doubles duo of Miles Stukes and Loucas L’Elie won their match via forfeit. 

Brown said both she and assistant coach David Gardner were extremely proud of their team for all the hard work they have been putting in. 

Thursday, the Knights host in-county foe Lugoff-Elgin in a highly anticipated match which has a 5 p.m. start.
