Cameron Johnson still hasn’t been beaten on the tennis court.

The Nash Central senior won the Eastern Plains Conference singles championship on Wednesday, collecting three wins in straight-set fashion. Johnston entered the tournament with a 14-0 record, and the trio of wins at the North Johnston-hosted event brought his record to 17-0.

Johnson won his first two matches by 6-1, 6-0 scores, and wasn’t touched in the title match, winning 6-0, 6-0. He also has non-conference wins this season over 3-A schools and rivals Rocky Mount High, Southern Nash and Northern Nash.

Next up for Johnson is the May 3 Eastern Regional tournament.
