Oak Ridge Tennis On a Roll, Takes Down Conroe

The War Eagle tennis team romped again Tuesday night as they declawed the Conroe Tigers eleven matches to six. This puts winning-happy Oak Ridge at 4-1 overall and 2-1 in 14-5A competition.

Two matches were called because of darkness as the festivities ran late. Tim Mack was ready to take the second set from Conroe’s Emmanuel Sanchez 2-6, 4-3 when their match was suspended and Oak Ridge’s Dalton Dueitt was up on Brandon Masga 6-2, 3-4 before night fell on them.

Overall, Oak Ridge won the tilt 11-6 as Coach Justin Williams was happy with his charges. “This was a long, enjoyable day of tennis because Conroe has a solid team and there were some real good matches tonight.”

Oak Ridge is on the road Friday in College Station as they take on A & M Consolidated in hopes of continuing their winning ways. Matches begin at 3:30pm.
