The middle school tennis Warriors dropped a 5-4 decision to North Raleigh Christian Academy Thursday at the Satellite Athletic Complex. St. David’s had to forfeit one singles and one doubles match because of absent players and couldn’t overcome the deficit. “It’s too bad, but our sixth graders were on their class trip,” said coach Emily Nelson. “The rest of the team competed hard and tried their best.” Sibley Hash (8-1), Margaret Scoggin (8-4) and Madison George (8-0) won singles, while Hash/Scoggin (8-4) took doubles.
