Gamecocks head into Elite Eight

Avenging their second early season loss in barely a week, the SCHS Gamecock tennis team of Suzanna Kirkland hosted and defeated 2AA runner-up Benedictine Friday afternoon to earn their first trip to the Elite Eight since 2005.
The Roosters are scheduled to face 1AA champion Thomasville on the SCHS courts Friday at 2 p.m. The match was initially scheduled for Wednesday, but the day was switched because of the forecasted inclement weather. The home team was decided by a GHSA coin flip.
The Thomasville match will represent the team’s first in the quarterfinals since 2005.
Having fallen to the Cadets 3-2 on March 28 as one of their contests in the Coastal Empire Tennis Classic, the Gamecocks reversed a loss at No. 2 doubles to claim the win.
Claiming victories in the first sets of four of the five individual matches, the Red and White quickly established that they meant business on this day.
First off was that No. 2 doubles team of seniors Zachary Anderson and Bobby Hodges who were 6-2, 6-2 winners.
At that point, the remainder of the lineup had to do no worse than they did on March 28.
Next off was Ryan Bazemore at 6-0, 6-3. Jacob Lariscy fell 0-6, 4-6 to give the Cadets some sort of hope, but the other doubles team of Zachary Weaver and James Woods took a hard-earned second set to secure a 6-3, 6-4 victory.
At that point, Mason Oglesby was pulled after splitting sets at 6-2, 4-6.
The BC win was actually the team’s second state win in just three days following a surprisingly easy 3-0 victory over 1AA No. 4 Fitzgerald April 23.
Starting ahead 1-0 by virtue of the fact that the Hurricane brought only six players, forfeiting at No. 3 singles, the Roosters quickly picked up wins by Anderson/Matthew Thomas (6-1, 6-0) and Lariscy (6-0, 6-2) rolling to wins.
Fitzgerald then pulled the remaining matches even though Bazemore (6-2, 5-2) was one game away from completion.
Far and away the most competitive match of the day was at No. 1 doubles were Weaver/Woods were up a set after a 7-6 (9) win. They did not start the second set.
