The Watauga High men's tennis team clinched a tie for the Northwestern 3A/4A Conference Wednesday afternoon on Senior Day at the Sports Complex.
Steve Lake, who will play for his father, Bob Lake, at Appalachian State University next season, Cody Snyder, Partick O'Neal and Ben Proffitt were all honored before the match. Following those ceremonies, the Pioneers (12-4 overall; 10-0 NW3A/4A) dismissed South Caldwell, 7-2. Lake, Michael Smith, Snyder, O'Neal and Chris Ludwig all won in singles play; Lake and Smith were victorious at No.1 doubles; Landon Taylor and O'Neal picked up a win at No.2 doubles. "Coach (Scott) Taylor has been great to work with the last four years," Lake said. "It's been a lot of fun playing for him, and I'm really looking forward to playing for my dad next season at ASU." The Pioneers can nail down the conference championship this afternoon at Hibriten.
The WHS track teams did not compete on Wednesday. According to head coach Randy McDonough, they will compete Satruday, weather permitting, at the ASU Invitational in Boone.
