The Upson-Lee tennis teams remained undefeated Tuesday as both the Knights and Lady Knights knocked off region foe Shaw.
The Lady Knights extended their winning streak as they were able to defeat the Raiders 4-1.
Kay Vaughn and Mallorie Edenfield captured two singles wins for the Lady Knights as Vaughn won the No. 2 singles 10-2 and Edenfield won 10-8. Both U-L doubles teams defeated Shaw to give the Lady Knights the win.
But it wasn't as easy as it has been, especially for the duo of Katie Wise and Caroline Payne.
With a two-year winning streak in jeopardy, Wise and Payne fell down 0-6 to start the match, they were able to show exactly why they haven't lost a match in over a two years as they rallied back for a 10-7 win.
Carlin Reddick and Lisa Sisterson finished off the Lady Knights' wins with an easy 10-1 win in the No. 2 doubles.
The Lady Knights' lone loss of the match was in the No. 1 singles where Hayley Edenfield lost a 10-7 decision.
"Hayley played an exchange student from Spain and she was good," Upson-Lee tennis coach Cathy Bickley said. "She could put the ball on a dime from anywhere on the court. I was proud of Hayley for being able to hang in there with her."
"Katie and Caroline were in a struggle match, but they probably shouldn't have been," Coach Bickley continued. "It was just one of those days where nothing they did worked, but they showed a lot of character as they fought back and got the win. I was also very proud of Carlin and Lisa for coming up with a big win for us."
The Knights used two clutch double wins to knock off Shaw 3-2 Tuesday.
After dropping the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, the Knights were in a must-win situation, and win they did.
John Oxford helped the Knights' cause with a 10-6 win in the No. 3 singles match and both doubles teams came up with clutch wins as the Knights were able to remain undefeated.
Drew Schug and Ansley Fowler won the No. 1 doubles match 10-3 and Drew McDaniel and Seth Smith captured a 10-3 win to seal the match for the Knights.
"Their boys' singles were very strong," Coach Bickley said. "David Bramlett played their No. 1 player very well but was unable to get the win. John Oxford played what was probably his best match of the season. He got an important win for us in the No. 3 singles. And I am very pleased with both boys doubles teams and the way they are coming together as a team.
