Aaron Cox got the win for Southmont at No. 1 singles over North Montgomery Tuesday night.
NEW MARKET-It was as close as expected. But Southmont edged North Montgomery 3-2 in county tennis Tuesday night.

The Mounties won all three singles spots in straight sets. Aaron Cox, Nathan Truncone and Wyatt Waddell did the work there.

"The guys were ready to play," Southmont head coach Nathan Poynter said. "We still have things to work on."

For the Chargers, the doubles teams got it done. Tyler Swick and Mitch Merica took care of business in straight sets at No. 1 doubles. Seniors Collin Denham and Zach Walke dropped the first set, but battled back to win in three at No. 2.
