CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial tennis teams swept a pair of district matches with Rockwood last Friday and Kingston Monday at Roane State Community College in Harriman.

The SMHS Lady Panthers won their district match on SMHS courts Friday, April 12, against Rockwood by a score of 6-3. 

Ali Harris defeated Alex Patterson 8-1 in No. 1 singles.

The Panther boys tennis team posted a 4-3 win over district opponent Rockwood. Number 1 seed Mark Brown and No. 2 seed Tyler Yoder were unavailable to play in this match, so the remaining three players moved up two positions and elevated their play to win the match.

The Lady Panthers defeated the Lady Blue Devils 9-0. Ali Harris defeated Jill Goldston 8-1 in No. 1 singles. Peyton Franklin posted an 8-1 victory over Kristen Arden at No. 2 singles.  Tori Harris again easily won her No. 3 singles match 8-0 against Leketta Asbury.

The Lady Panthers pair of Harris and Harris easily defeated Goldston and Arden 8-0 at No. 1 doubles. Franklin and Myslinski easily defeated Fost and Moore 8-2 at No. 2 doubles. Alexandra Anthony and Yen Riddle won by forfeit.

The SMHS Panthers won their match 7-2 at Roane State over the Harriman Blue Devils. Mark Brown easily defeated Deran Franklin 8-0 at No. 1 singles.  Tyler Yoder continued the domination at No. 2 singles with an 8-0 win, as well. Trent Campbell also turned in a perfect match score of 8-0 at No. 3 singles over Matt Snow. Parker Hill won convincingly over Chane Goldston 8-1 at No. 4 singles, and Stephen Tung battled to a 9-8 win in a 7-5 tie-breaker game.

Mark Brown and Tyler Yoder teamed up for an 8-0 win at No. 1 doubles over Henry Thorne and Daryl Farmer. Trent Campbell and Parker Hill turned in a perfect match score of 8-0 at No. 2 doubles over Matt Snow and Bubba Pressley.  Number 6 singles and number 3 doubles were forfeited due to only 5 players for the Panthers.

The Panthers and Lady Panthers are both now 4-1 in district play and 4-2 overall. The SMHS tennis team traveled to Loudon County Tuesday to take on the Redskins in district action.
