The Lady Wolverines continued their season by traveling to Winnsboro, SC to take on the Lady Griffins of Fairfield Central in what would turn out to be a very competitive match. The Lady Wolverines jumped out to the early lead taking wins at numbers 4 and 5 singles, but Fairfield Central would answer with a win at number one singles despite a great match by Aubrey. The Lady Wolverines would claim another point with a win at the number 2 doubles positions and were waiting on the results of the Kendrick sisters at 2 and 3. Raegan fought back hard in the first set to take it in the tiebreaker and Kimberly managed to take the one set lead after letting her opponent take 2 games in a row to make it 5-4 before losing the next game. The Kendrick sisters would put their opponents away in the second sets to give Whitmire the 5-1 team victory and to improve their record to 12-1 on the season. This was a tough match after clinching the region Tuesday night to get prepared for and I am very proud of the way the girls persevered and got the team victory! Hanna Wagner was also able to get in a singles match and had a really impressive 8-2 victory over their number 8 player! The results of the matches are as follows:
#1 Singles: C. Trapp (FC) d. Aubrey Brock (W) – 6-2, 6-2
#2 Singles: Kimberly Kendrick (W) d. K. Boyd (FC) – 6-4, 6-2
#3 Singles: Raegan Kendrick (W) d. J. Green (FC) – 7-6 (11-9), 6-4
