Those matches came on the heels of another impressive showing at the Cobb County Invitational, which Pope won for the fifth consecutive year and is seeking a fourth straight state championship.
Since falling to Woodstock on Sept. 13, the Pope girls haven't even conceded a game during their winning streak, which how has them at 33-7 on the season.
Coach Bryan Jones, who earlier this season won his 400th match with Pope, but his revamped roster to the test early, as the Lady Greyhounds lost three in a row to powerhouses Walton, Whitewater and Harrison.
Thursday's tri-meet at Pope includes a match against The Walker School, ranked No. 1 in Class A, at 5 p.m., followed by a match against Dalton at 7 p.m.
