Wave tennis team is still in the hunt

  • Friday, April 25, 2014

The Green Wave boys’ tennis team avenged a prior loss to Bluffton to stay alive in the chase for the Region 8-AAAA championship.

Summerville earned a 4-1 victory Tuesday in Bluffton. The Wave won the first four singles matches, eliminating the need for doubles play.

“It all came together today on the singles courts,” Summerville coach David Long said. “I am so proud of Adam Seith, he played his best match of the year to beat a strong player, only losing 3 games. He has struggled some this season but our team benefited today from all the work he put in over spring break. Adam was the difference.”

Summerville improved to 8-6 on the season and 5-2 in region matches. Bluffton fell to 6-3, 6-2. Beaufort defeated Ashley Ridge 7-0 Tuesday to improve to 7-5, 7-1 so the remaining region games will determine the region championship and playoff seeding for the region leaders.

“We still have a chance to win the region and that was a major goal for this team,” Long said. “We will play out the region and prepare for playoffs and see what happens. I am excited for my kids because this is a big win. Our coaching staff is very encouraged. Hopefully we are getting hot at the right time.”

Summerville is scheduled to close its schedule at Fort Dorchester April 29. The Class AAAA playoffs begin May 6.
