ROCKINGHAM — The Richmond girls tennis team made quick work of Seventy-First on Tuesday.

Greyson Way and Chloe Wiggins took care of business in the No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively, Taylor Parrish and Morgan Hooks earned a win in the No. 1 doubles, and the Lady Raiders rolled to a 9-0 victory — their ninth straight.

The other four singles matches, and the last two doubles, were forfeited due to the Falcons only having two players.

Way, a senior, played the No. 1 singles for the first time since late August and blanked Aaliyah Smith, 8-0, in an eight-game pro set. Wiggins, also a senior, defeated Seventy-First senior TyKariah Reyes-Harper, 8-1, in the No. 2 bout.

Parrish and Hooks, both seniors, fought for an 8-4 win in the lone doubles bout versus Reyes-Harper and Smith.

Richmond (9-3, 8-1 SAC) is scheduled to travel to rival Scotland on Thursday.
