The Bartlett Yancey girls tennis team kicked off its 2019 season with a match against perennial powerhouse and 2018 state finalist North Carolina School of Science & Math (Durham) Wednesday. 

The Unicorn hands the Bucs a 5-1 loss in the match. Sarah Kate Watlington picked up the lone win for BY against the annual state powerhouse. 

BY will have little time to regroup as it opens Mid-State Conference play with a road trip to Hillsborough for a match against Cedar Ridge. Time is set for 4:30 p.m.
