Laurens District 55 High School
J L Mann High School
In their first playoff appearance in several years, the Raider ladie’s tennis team was forced to face off against #1 seed J.L. Mann in the 1st round playoff match.
Kathleen Horner, Ella Orcutt and Abby Davis all took their matches to three sets. Only Orcutt was able to win her match on the tiebreaker. This was the first win in post season play for any Raider tennis player. Both Horner and Davis, however, were not able to get the win. Both players lost in a tiebreaker at the end of the 3rd match. In other singles matches, Kathryn Tribble and Julianne Turner were defeated in straight sets.
Only one doubles match was played. In that contest, the team of Tiffany Huffman and Anna Jenkins fell 1 – 8 in a proset.
We are all proud of the effort these young ladies put into their season and we know that they will continue to improve as a result of those efforts. Go Raiders!
