WCHS falls at Hendersonville -
HENDERSONVILLE -- Wilson Central's tennis teams dropped a pair of matches Monday at Hendersonville High as boys lost 6-1, and the girls dropped a 5-2 decision to the Lady Commandos.
The Wildcats (5-1 in District 9-AAA, 9-1 overall), looked to start out hot out of the gates, but the duo of Akbar Rahmani and Houston Wood never got on track as the top ranked Wildcat team lost an 8-1 decision to Jackson Kinsler and Brady Rucks.
Looking to salvage a split in doubles, Andrew Denning and Michael Mercante held a 5-4 lead at number two doubles, but lost four of the next five games to drop an 8-6 decision to Jared Burns and Garrett Franklin.
At number two singles, Wood battled and held a 5-4 lead in the first set, but missed opportunities on crucial points led to a 7-5 first set loss to Rucks before dropping the second set 6-0.
Mercante did give Wilson Central its lone win as he claimed a 6-2, 6-2 win at number one singles over Kinsler.
However, the match remained in a slide for the Wildcats as Rahmani lost a hard-fought 7-5 first set before dropping the next 6-0 to Burns at number three singles.
Denning fell 6-1, 6-2 at number four singles to Franklin, and junior Braden Hammer faltered late to Ben Darr at number five singles 6-4, 7-6 (4).
The Lady Wildcats managed to work themselves into favorable opportunities, but missed out on chances to win several matches.
Wilson Central (4-2, 7-4) managed to get on the board first as the tandem of Jacey Staggs and Savannah Westbrook battled from 5-1 down to claim an 8-6 win at number two doubles against Lucky Sims and Audrey Spurlock.
However, the Lady Wildcats could only manage a split in doubles play as the duo of Jennifer Beckham and Lani Lee lost a tight 8-6 battle at one doubles to Grace Phillips and Caroline Miller.
Beckham and Lee lost five deuce (deciding point) points that proved to be a big difference.
Hendersonville gained the lead as Sims defeated Staggs at one singles 6-0, 6-4.
Cassie Joslin tied the match up at two with a 6-1, 6-3 triumph over Spurlock at four singles, but the Lady Commandos reclaimed the lead as Phillips defeated Lee 6-1, 6-4 at two singles.
Hendersonville clinched the match with Miller defeating Westbrook 6-4, 6-3 at number three singles.
Once again, the deuce points proved to be a nemesis for Wilson Central as Miller claimed all six of the deuce points.
Katie Lee finished off the match for Hendersonville as she defeated Beckham 6-0, 0-6, 10-4 at number five singles.
Wilson Central will finish the regular season Wednesday, April 26 as they host Father Ryan.
