&uot;It was pretty even,&uot; Hunt said. &uot;I’m not used to playing singles, so I had to get into the groove. It took me a set to get into it.&uot;

Of the second-set comeback, she said, &uot;I was determined and was hitting more volleys.&uot;

In the number one boys doubles match, Tensas’ team of Thomas Crigler and Tyler White came from one set down to defeat Trinity’s Mark Hamelin and Sam Kirby, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

In the number two boys doubles match, Marshall Hardwick and Randall Borsch of Tensas had little problem in defeating Cory Vlyman and Alex Allain of Trinity, 6-1, 6-2.

Trinity next hosts Huntington at 3:30 p.m. Monday.
