Hornets continue to sting D-10 tennis teams

Hickory continues to be the best District 10 Class AA girls tennis team not named Mercyhurst Prep.

The Hornets improved to 8-1 overall with Tuesday’s 5-0 victory against Sharon. The shutout also left them 8-0 atop the Region 1 standings.

Marissa Works and Rachel Mettee won 8-0 pro sets as Hickory’s No. 1 and 2 starters in singles. Lauren McGonigle completed its sweep of singles with an 8-3 victory over the Tigers’ Lauren Wood.

The tandems of Nikki Marone and Anna Derloni, and Bailey McLaughlin and Annalise Bianco, were victorious in doubles for the Hornets, whose only loss was to Class AAA McDowell on Aug. 26. They resume play Thursday against Kennedy Catholic.
