Hornets Play Doubles With SPC Spring Tennis Championships

Ruling the SPC tennis courts is nothing new for Greenhill, which has won several conference titles in recent years.

However, the Hornets set a new standard by sweeping the boys and girls crowns for the first time in school history at the recent SPC spring meet in Fort Worth.

The Greenhill boys claimed their third straight championship and fifth in the past six years. The girls reclaimed the top spot for the first time since 2009.

On the boys side, Greenhill’s win over Houston Kinkaid in the title match was its 52nd victory in its last 55 matches, capping a 12-0 season. The girls edged ESD for the title and finished the year with a 14-3 mark.

The Hornets also successfully defended their SPC title in girls track and field. Jernaya Sharp won the 100 meters, 100 hurdles, and long jump, while Amelia Jones took the pole vault crown. Sharp also teamed with Ellen Margaret Andrews, Emily Richmond, and Kelli Banks to win the 4×400 relay.

In other action, ESD earned its second consecutive boys lacrosse title with a 10-4 win over Houston St. John’s, with St. Mark’s coming in third.
