LOGAN, W.Va. — A streak ended … but not the important one.

The Point Pleasant girls tennis team extended its winning streak to five consecutive matches on Saturday following a 6-1 victory over Logan in a non-conference contest at Chief Logan State Park.

The Lady Knights — who had previously won four consecutive matches by 7-0 counts — surrendered its only head-to-head contest in the past week as RaeAnn Reed claimed an 8-0 decision over Olivia Pyles in first singles.

PPHS, however, gave up only seven games in the remaining six contests — and half of those victories came by 8-0 counts.

Bailey Barnett posted an 8-3 win over Candy Kazee in second singles and Danielle Marcum earned an 8-1 decision over Kenna Jeffrey in third singles. Sarah Deem also won her fourth singles match against Keazie Scott by an 8-0 margin.

Pyles and Barnett claimed an 8-3 victory over Reed and Kazee in first doubles, whiles Marcum and Deem earned an 8-0 win over Jeffrey and Natasha Fowler in second doubles.

Kenlee Bonecutter and Caroline Foreman wrapped up the team tally with an 8-0 win over Scott and Blaklei Watts in third doubles.
