Green Hope moves on, ends Clayton’s unbeaten run

Clayton is starting to climb the ranks of the 4A boys tennis world. The Comets won their first dual team playoff match at the 4A level in school history last week and have a state individual qualifier in Klein Evans. But beating one of the state’s best teams is a taller net. Tuesday, Southwest Wake Athletic Conference champion Green Hope downed Clayton 5-1 in the second round of the state playoffs. The Falcons (16-2) await the winner between East Chapel Hill and Wakefield in the third round next week.
