BCHS netters swing back into action

The Bryan County High tennis team swung back into action on March 9 when they traveled to Liberty County. Both BCHS teams lost, but the girls’ game was close.
The girls came home with a 2-3 record for the day. Taylor Stanfield won her singles match 8-3 playing in the No. 3 slot and the doubles duo of Jamie Lape and Chelsea Gallo won their match 8-5 from the No. 1 slot.  
The boys team didn’t fare quite as well as they were swept by the Liberty boys 0-5 on the day. Brandon Cannon and Taylor Foster came very close to victory, but lost in a tie breaker.
The following day, the Redskins faced an even tougher squad of tennis buffs as the formidable Savannah Christian Raiders came to Pembroke and made it a long afternoon for the Bryan County squads. Both the girls and boys went down 0-5.
“Both the boys and girls teams played hard, but Savannah Christian was just too strong for us,” said BCHS Coach Karen Lynn.
In spite of their overall record thus far this season, Coach Lynn sees some good things from her young netters.
“Of course, I would be happier if we had gotten better outcomes from the Liberty County and Savannah Christian matches. However, I am very pleased with the effort and good attitude that I continue to get from both the girls’ and boys’ squads. I am especially happy with the play of Taylor Stanfield, Chelsea Gallo and Jamie Lape on the girls’ side and Brandon Cannon and Taylor Foster have done well for the boys.”
Lynn commended Jeremy Ennis, Eric Morgan, Eric Sikes, Travis Herndon and Phillip Sapp for continuing “to work hard and give a great effort with each match. Alex Rud, Kayla Koskela, Lauren Martin and Megan Taylor have also impressed me with their desire to get better.”
Bryan County travelled to Claxton on Tuesday for a match and will host Jenkins County Thursday in Pembroke, 4 p.m. start.
