Daily Staff Report - firstname.lastname@example.org
Central's Molly Barb advanced to the Group A state individual singles tournament on Tuesday, by winning the Region B tournament held at Wilson Memorial High School.
"She played so well," Central girls tennis coach Mallory Skarupa said. "[In the final] she was just in the zone. She was feeling it. She played very well."
Barb beat Goochland's Mackenzie Nunnally, 6-1, 6-3, in the semifinals. The final was moved indoors to the Augusta Medical Center, which Skarupa said helped Barb.
The Falcons will host Wilson Memorial on Friday at 2 p.m. in the Region B semifinals. Barb and teammate Katelyn Foltz will play in the Region B doubles semifinals on May 29 at Wilson Memorial. They will play Goochland's Nunnally and Brett Alvis in the semis.
"All the credit in the world goes to her," Skarupa said. "No one deserves it more than she does. I couldn't ask for a better person or player to coach."
