Mount Olive, N.C. --   North Greenville dropped its first Conference Carolinas match of the season on Friday as the Mount Olive Trojans snapped a five game league winning streak with a 5-4 win.

North Greenville escaped doubles play with a 2-0 lead. Fernanda Santos de Lucca and Graysen Elms earned an 8-3 win while Kylie Sandusky and Maria Vargas scored an 8-7 win.

The Crusaders will be back in action on Saturday afternoon as they head to Wilson, North Carolina to take on the Barton Bulldogs at 1pm.
