Sarah Pounds outlasted Northside-Warner Robins’ Cara Dunbar in a three-set marathon in the No. 3 singles match last Thursday to enable the Jones County girls to edge the Lady Eagles 3-2 to hold on to first place in the subregion.

The Lady Hounds had lost their other two singles matches but rebounded to win both doubles matches to even the score. Pounds lost her first set 4-6 to Dunbar but came back to take 7-5 and 7-6 victories in the final two sets to give Jones County the win.

The girls, who also beat Warner Robins 3-2 last week, went into spring break with a 10-1 record for the season. They are 6-1 in 2-AAAAA play.

The Jones County boys lost 2-3 to both Warner Robins and Northside to fall to 5-6 overall and 1-6 in the subregion, but Jacob Wills remains undefeated on the season at No. 2 singles for the Greyhounds.

Olivia Lane and Logan Bowden lost for the first time this season at No. 1 doubles for the Lady Hounds last week, falling to Warner Robins 2-3. With their streak snapped, coach Alisha Gordon split the pair for the match against Northside, giving both new partners, and the move paid off with two doubles victories against the Lady Eagles.
