In doubles play, Marlow teamed up with junior Cooper Garrett (Gate City, Va.) for another trio of victories. They duo went 1-0 at No. 1 in their two matches at the second flight. An 8-0 win over the Pacers started the week off right, as Marlow and Garrett moved up the ladder to No. 1 for an 8-2 win over Ohio Christian.
