Union Pines played three men’s tennis matches in two days this week, sweeping a doubleheader from Hoke County on Tuesday before falling to Richmond on Wednesday for the Vikings’ first conference setback.

The Vikings hosted Hoke and the teams played an uncommon format, playing both their conference matches at once. After Union Pines won five of the six singles matches in the first showdown, the teams mutually agreed to dispense with the doubles and just begin the second team match. Both singles and doubles were played in the nightcap, with Union Pines winning 8-1.
