Red Devils sweep Pisgah in opening round

May 3, 2011

Opening its state title defense, the Newton-Conover tennis team made a statement Tuesday.

The Red Devils (21-2) swept visiting Pisgah and only dropped seven of a combined 109 points in those matches. Newton-Conover won 72 of 78 points in its singles matches and 30 of 31 points in doubles matches.

“Pisgah was a wild card team,” said Red Devils’ coach Brian Tate. “We know what is coming up next. That is Salisbury, a team we play in the western finals last year. I’m just trying to get these guys a little more focused. Matches like this don’t feel like a playoff match sometimes.”

The Hunter found his prey on Monday.

The Bandys baseball team, led by pitcher Hunter Harvey, denied Bunker Hill a second consecutive undefeated regular season.

Harvey pitched a complete seven innings, striking out 10 batters, allowing five hits and two walks in the victory.

“Hunter threw great tonight,” said Bandys coach Frank Porter. “He is a young kid, only a sophomore. He was the difference.”

Bears coach Marty Curtis gave credit to Harvey after the game was over.
