BLUE RIDGE — The Blue Ridge boys doubles team of Cameron Armstrong and Chaice Weatherford qualified for the Class 2A state tennis tournament after winning a play-back in the Region II tournament on Thursday afternoon.


Armstrong and Weatherford beat teammates Nolan Henderson and Caleb Partridge, 6-3, 6-2, for the region’s second spot at state at Blue Ridge High School after rain altered the schedule earlier this week and forced the play-back to their home court due to UIL restrictions on the number of matches in a single day.


They join seven other area entries at the state tournament, which will be May 18-19 at Texas A&M.
