BCHS tennis season begins

Last Tuesday the Burke County tennis team traveled to Wayne County for its first match of the year. Because it was a region match, it had big implications on the future of both the Bears’ and Lady Bears’ seasons.

Unfortunately for the girls, they lost 0-5, losing all three singles and two doubles matches. The boys lost 1-4 as Elliott Corbit was the only boy to win his match. The tennis team has a lot of new faces this year, and many players are still finding their groove–especially those playing doubles.

On Wednesday they traveled to Augusta to play against Davidson and both the boys and girls teams lost 2-3. Ashlee Ray won her singles match and Malaysia Styles and Aaliyah Walker won their doubles match. For the boys, Ryan Morris and Elliott Corbit won their singles matches.

The Bears also traveled to Screven County on Monday, March 6. Stats for that match will be available next week. Also, the boys hosted Benedictine yesterday, March 7. Both the Bears and Lady Bears tennis teams will travel to Swainsboro tomorrow for a non-region matchup against the Tigers.
