Titan senior reaches 100th win

Hopewell tennis player John David Curlis reached his 100th career win Wednesday at the I-Meck Conference tournament. Curlis, who's playing doubles in the tournament, is a four-year varsity starter and state qualifier for the Titans. The senior's record is 100-44.

Curlis, Hopewell's No. 1 player, led his team to an undefeated 7-0 I-Meck season and another conference regular season title. The Titans are ranked 10th in this week's N.C. High School Tennis Coaches Association 4A poll.

Curlis and doubles partner Brian Andersen will play teammates Tyler Roberts and John Armato in the I-Meck tournament finals today.

On the singles bracket, Hough freshman Ryan Wydra will face Mooresville junior Jake Combs for the title.
