The Union County tennis team came up short against Clinton on Thursday, 5-1. With the win, the Red Devils advance to first in the region.
“We changed some things around to try to get the win against an experienced Clinton team,” said Union County Coach Kelly Jenkins. “Abby Allen got a big win in singles. She went to a third set with Gambrell last time they played, but Abby really took it to her tonight. We played well in other spots, but we couldn’t get the wins tonight. Caroline Moss played her best match of the season and Reid Bailey continues to improve each time out as well.”
