It was a hectic 48 hours for the Brevard Lady Blue Devil tennis team this week, as Brevard played four matches in two days to make up for rainouts.

However, Brevard came away with an impressive 3-1 record, defeating Franklin twice on Monday and splitting a pair of matches against Smoky Mountain on Tuesday.

Not only was it a tight schedule, the matches were all condensed to 8-game pro sets to speed things up.

In the first match on Monday, Brevard beat Franklin 5-2.

Winners included Sadie Tynch (8-6), Eliza Graham (8-3), Chayse Chandler (9-7) and Morgan Nelkie (8-1).

The doubles pair of Eda Riemann-Royer and Nelkie gave Brevard the victory with their 8-4 win in the number two doubles spot.

The two teams turned around and played again, with the Lady Blue Devils earning a 5-1 win.
