Bears dominate tennis with South Stokes

   Mount Airy dominated
the first four matches on
its way to a commanding
8-1 tennis victory over
South Stokes Tuesday.
   The Bears won all six
singles matches and two
of three doubles matches.
   In the first four seeds,
the Bears won all eight
sets by a combined score
of 48-7.
   Top seed Matt Kessler
blanked Brent Morse 6-0,
6-0. Mitch Kessler won 6-
2, 6-2 over Matt Childers.
   Third-seed Eric Belton
won 6-1, 6-0, while
fourth-seed Jordan Law-
son won 6-0, 6-2.
   While      those    four
matches were important,
Coach Jim Reeves said he
was most pleased with the
wins posted by the other
two     starters.   Robert
Blizard and Blake Hens-
ley have worked hard the
past few weeks to im-
prove their games, he
   Blizard won the fifth-
seed match with a strong
