From staff reports

John Paul II’s girls tennis team pulled off an impressive region victory against Hilton Head Christian Academy on Thursday, winning 5-4 after battling for more than four hours. 

The bottom of the lineup came up big for the Golden Warriors, as Samantha Reilly won the day’s only three-set thriller at No. 4, while No. 5 Breanna Frank and No. 6 Alexa Eaddy sailed through in straight sets. JPII’s Bela Crespo also delivered a victory at No. 2, while HHCA got wins from No. 1 Caitlin Jackson and No. 3 Elizabeth Drozd.

The Eagles took the first two doubles matches, though, hinging everything on the No. 3 doubles court, where Frank and Eaddy held on for an 8-5 win to seal the match.

JPII (1-1, 1-0) travels to Hilton Head Prep for a region match Monday. HHCA (0-1) is back in action Sept. 7 against Heritage Academy.
