Polk County's Julia Griffith

Hendersonville’s girls tennis team showed Wednesday why it could make a run at a state 2A championship this season, handing Polk County a 9-0 setback at Polk.

The Wolverines opened their season with a loss, but head coach Richard Davis found much to like despite the defeat, noting a number of close matches throughout the lineup.

Polk County is currently playing with five players, one short of the minimum, and thus forfeited No. 6 singles and No. 3 doubles.

The Wolverines return to action on Tuesday, traveling to face East Rutherford.

1. McCollough Perry d. Tana Harris 10-2; 2. Lindsay Bull d. Julia Griffith 10-7; 3. Olivia Pursely d. Sara Muse 10-3; 4. Anna Trace d. Ava Marino 10-6; 5. Celia Donaldson d. Madi Pruette 10-0.

1. Perry-Bull d. Harris-Griffth 10-2; 2. Pursely-Donaldson d. Muse-Marino 10-1.
