Tennis match postponed

ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond Senior-Purnell Swett Southeastern Conference boys tennis match set for Tuesday was pushed back a day because of the threat of rain in the area.

The teams will now take the courts 4 p.m. today in Pembroke. The Raiders blanked the Rams 9-0 Friday after the first two dates were postponed because of rain.

Richmond is 6-1 overall and 4-1 in the SEC.
