Congratulations to the boys varsity tennis team, who is the 2021 Region champion!
In the semi-finals, the boys defeated Walker 3-1, with wins from B. Moultrie and B. Watson at singles. The match was clinched by doubles pair H. Jervey and A. Touma to send the boys to the championship match.
In the championship match, the boys took on Darlington. D. Santana battled through an injury to win the first point for the team. Then doubles team N. Roberts and M. Faucett dominated at one doubles to get the second point. B. Moultrie, playing line 2 singles, came back from being down 2-5 in the second set, forcing a third set. He was winning 3-0, and then his match was stopped because freshman B. Watson clinched the victory to give the boys the third point and claim the Region championship. After being down one set, B. Watson regrouped and won set two and three to seal the victory.
The boys team will host the first round of the State tournament beginning Monday against Mount Bethel Christian Academy. If the boys win their first match, they will host a second match at home as well.
