Conditions were not favorable for tennis Wednesday, which proved to be a brisk afternoon.
Christ School varsity tennis made its own luck, winning for the fifth time in the team’s last six matches. The Greenies swept singles to clinch an 8-1 rout of Rabun Gap (Ga.) across the Betsy Harris McCullough Tennis Courts.
Christ School improves its record to 5-2 overall and 4-1 in the Carolinas Athletic Association ahead of Thursday’s 4 p.m. home match with Asheville Christian Academy.
