The local tennis teams were on opposite ends of play Tuesday afternoon as the Golden Tornadoes took a pair of 7-0 wins over visiting Dyersburg while Central suffered a pair of 7-0 losses at Halls.
The two teams will come together Thursday at the Middle School courts on Thursday as UC will play host to the Rebels.

The top doubles twosome of Anna Moore and Tara Elam handled Madison Vaughn and Catherine Moore 8-1. The two also won their singles matches as UC’s Moore earned an 8-2 decision over Dyersburg’s Moore, while Elam battled back for an 8-5 win over Vaughn.
Miller was an 8-3 winner over Northcutt on the No. 3 singles court.
Jacob Triplett and Devin King had relatively easy days for the Twister boys, each winning in singles and then teaming in doubles.
