LYNCHBURG (WSLS 10 SPORTS) -

The Boys 3A Team Tennis championship will feature two teams from the River Ridge as Hidden Valley and Blacksburg will face each other for the third straight year.

The Bruins will go for back-to-back titles while the Titans look to get back to their winning ways, after taking the championship in 2014. They'll go into Saturday's matchup undefeated at 21-0 but based on past meetings between these two teams, that record doesn't say much. Matty Ducker and James Barron who faced off in the singles championship Thursday talked about that rivalry.

"I know it'll be a challenge but you know I'm going to give it my all. I really want to win so I have to give it my all", said Barron.

"We've really been putting in a lot of work we did a lot out of season training. I'm sure they did too and it's been 3 years in a row even before that we were good so it's almost turning into a dynasty for both of us," said Ducker.

Believe it or not, before this championship weekend is over it's possible that Blacksburg and Hidden Valley could meet up three times. Of course they met in the singles championship, they could possibly meet up in the doubles championship Friday morning and also as a team Friday afternoon.
