The Lady Tigers took on the Commandos of Hendersonville High School on Wednesday! This final non-district match of the season proved to be the perfect warm-up for the upcoming District 7L tournament!
The Commandos were an awesome team, top to bottom, however the Lady Tigers pulled out some good ones – third set tie breaks, come-from-behind victories, and just plain tight matches – and won 8-1 over the visiting Hendersonville team.
Macy & Molly Speight won 6 straight games at #1 doubles, down 2-6, to come back and win 8-6. Macy Speight again won 6 straight games to come back from being down 2-5 in the second set… winning her match at #2 singles 6-1, 7-5.
Molly Speight pulled out a 3rd set tiebreak at #4 singles for the win 6-3, 5-7 (10-8).

Next up for the Tigers is the final match of the season vs district opponent Stewarts Creek. That match has already been rescheduled twice, and it looks like a high probability that it won’t happen as scheduled on Thursday.
The Lady Tigers already secured the #1 seed in the District 7L team tournament that starts on Monday, April 30th! Looking to maintain momentum into the post season! Go Tigers!!
