Glynn Academy tennis wrapped up play at the Golden Isles Tennis Tournament Saturday afternoon. The Lady Terrors topped Lowndes 4-1 in Saturday afternoon’s consolation dual match to claim third place in the tournament. The Boys squad placed fourth after falling to Lowndes 4-1 in the consolation game.
“They played great,” head coach Burnett Rooks said. “Not as well as I had hoped, but we had the competition there.”
After beating Screven Friday afternoon, Cambridge swept the Lady Terrors 5-0 in Saturday’s 10:45 a.m. match.
Glynn Academy came through in its battle with Lowndes for third place. Sarah Murray won 6-2, 6-3 in No. 1 singles, Emma Hidalgo won 6-1, 6-2 in No. 2 singles, Eliana Paga and Ansley Moody were reunited as a tandem and won 6-2, 6-2 on No. 1 doubles court and Curray Hartman and Yanin Reinholz took their match 6-1, 6-1 on doubles court No. 2.
The Glynn Academy boys lost 4-1 to the eventual champion, Cambridge, and Lowndes swept the Terrors 5-0 later that afternoon.
Stephen Thompson was the lone winner for the boys Saturday, grinding out a 6-2, 1-6, 12-10 tiebreaker against Cambridge’s No. 3 singles player.
“(Thompson) played well for us, he was my grinder,” Rooks said.
Cambridge swept the tournament, beating Lakeside in both the boys and girls matches.
The Terrors continue their campaign with a varsity tri-match Thursday against Benedictin and St. Vincent at 4 p.m.
