Polk County girls tennis coach Richard Davis thinks Hendersonville could win the state 2A team title this season.
The Bearcats showed why Thursday.
Hendersonville posted a 7-1 win over the Wolverines in a non-conference match at Polk County.
The Bearcats won five of the day’s six singles matches, including a thriller at No. 1 singles, where McCollough Perry, last year’s runner-up in the state 2A singles tournament, rallied from an early deficit to nip Polk County’s Hannah Jennne 11-10 (7-1).
Polk County’s Julia Griffin won a hard-fought match with Hendersonville’s Hamrick Perry 10-5 for the Wolverines’ only point.
Polk County (1-1) is back in action Wednesday, traveling to T.C. Roberson.
