The Lady Hawks split games last week earning a 7-2 win over Colleton County High School Thursday Oct. 4 and taking a 6-3 loss to Palmetto Christian at home. Colleton Prep was defeated 6-3 in a junior varsity match against Orangeburg Prep Wednesday Oct. 3.
Senior Meredith Ware was honored during a pre-game ceremony held prior to the win over Colleton County. Ware has played in the No. 1 slot and served as captain since her eighth-grade season. She was named All-Lowcountry Tennis and Most Valuable Player each of the past five years. She was selected All-Region in her 8-10th grade years and was named SCISA IV-AA Player of the Year for 2017.
“The girls played well against OP, but couldn’t pull out the team win,” said Coach Becky Hooker. “Rianna and Becca were strong in both their matches, and Gracie played a close, tough match as well that could have gone either way. We earned the win against CCHS on Senior Night, with everyone winning their singles matches. We were then able to let our younger players get some valuable match experience in doubles, and I was proud of all their efforts.
“We also recognized Meredith Ware in her last home match,” said Hooker. “She has been on the CPA tennis team for seven years and has been a great representative for CPA on the tennis court and a leader for the program. She will definitely be missed next year — both on and off the court.
“We have our final match next week and look to finish out our regular season strong and begin preparing for playoffs,” said Hooker.
