Girls face tough foes

Taking the measure of a defending region champion and a state quarterfinalist March 28, the SCHS Lady Gamecocks fell to a pair of defending region champions March 29 in the extremely intense play of the Coastal Empire Tennis Classic at the Bacon Park Courts in Savannah.
With their regular season done Wednesday with a trip to Swainsboro, the Red and White will not be back in action until the 3AA tournament April 15 at the Mill Creek Complex in Statesboro.
SCHS stood at 14-3 as it headed into Wednesday.
In the opening round of the region tourney, the Lady Gamecocks will face the Lady Falcons of East Laurens. ELHS is the runners-up of 3AA-A. Dublin is the top seed from that side.
Competing in what is fast becoming the toughest tournament in Southeast Georgia, the Lady Gamecocks defeated St. Vincent’s (2013 Region 2AA champions) by a 4-1 margin as well as 1AAA Brantley County (third place in 1AAA in 2013, but a state quarterfinalist) 3-2 on Friday night. The pair of wins moved the locals into the championship round on Saturday.
Paired with 2013 Region 1AAA champion Savannah Arts Academy and 2013 Region 1AA champion Berrien County, the results for SCHS were disappointing.
Facing Savannah Arts for the first time ever, the Red and White fell 3-2 before falling to Berrien County 4-1. The victory for the Lady Rebels was their first-ever over the Lady Gamecocks. All previous meetings had been in either the Golden Isles Classic or the state playoffs.
Savannah Arts’ Lady Panthers claimed the tourney title with a 3-2 win over Berrien. SCHS claimed third place from the nine teams participating.
On Friday, the key to the SCHS success was the middle part of the lineup.
Going 2-0 were Mallorie Boswell, Jancy Durrence, and the team of Pamela Wooten/Haley Jackson. Boswell claimed 6-2, 6-3 and 6-2, 6-2 wins over St. Vincent’s and Brantley, respectively; Durrence went 6-2, 6-3 and 7-5, 6-3 in the same order and Wooten/Jackson went 6-2, 6-4 and 4-6, 7-6(1), 10-7.
At No. 2 doubles, Michaela Iwinski and Allie Bazemore defeated St. Vincent’s 6-3, 6-3 and fell to Brantley 5-7, 6-3. At No 1 singles, Rebekah Woods lost a pair of tight third set tiebreakers to St. Vincent’s 2-6, 6-3, 5-10 and to Brantley 2-6, 6-2, 9-11.
In all matches there were no third sets, only 10-point tiebreakers. The scoring also featured no-add.
Saturday the team opened with a total unknown quantity in Savannah Arts.
Up 2-0 as their opponents had no doubles teams, SCHS could not pull out another win, falling at all singles. Savannah Arts won all of its matches in the tourney 3-2, forfeiting the doubles in each match, but with its singles players each going 4-0.
Scores from the match saw Woods (2-6, 2-6), Boswell (3-6, 2-6), and Durrence (4-6, 2-6) fall.
With second place on the line, the Lady Gamecocks then faced Berrien County.
SCHS got but one win from Durrence 6-3, 6-3. The other contests saw Woods at 2-6, 3-6, Boswell at 6-2, 4-6, 6-10; Wooten/Jackson at 4-6, 3-6; and Kristin Thomas and Hannah Kumjian at 2-6, 3-6.
All of the matches were competitive enough that should the teams meet again in state competition it could easily swing in the favor of SCHS.
