Tennis: Gore, Houghton lift Lady Saints to perfect 10-0

cambgtennis-forehandThe Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach girls tennis team improved to a perfect 10-0 on Wednesday with a 9-0 sweep over visiting Marlboro County.

Moving their final home match to the Grande Dunes tennis center due to recent heavy rains, the Lady Saints also paid tribute to its two seniors – Caroline Gore and Grace Houghton – who are the founding members of the CAMB girls tennis program. The two were on the school’s original team in 2009 and hope to go out with the program’s first SCISA state title.

Gore and Houghton easily won their final home matches. Gore won her No. 2 singles match in straight sets and joined teammate Chloe Parker to win No. 2 doubles. Houghton cruised in her No. 5 singles match and teamed up with Tatianna Harrelson to win No. 1 doubles.

No. 1 singles Harrelson, No. 3 Parker, No. 4 San Fanning and No. 6 Ashley Bass also won their singles matches in straight sets, and Bass and Greer Houghton and sailed at No. 3 doubles.

The Lady Saints (10-0 overall, 5-0 region) have one final regular-season and region match still to be made up from last week’s rain before entering the playoffs.

* Socastee 4, West Florence 3: The Lady Braves battled to a narrow victory over the Lady Knights in a makeup region match.

Socastee’s No. 1 doubles team of Anna Brice Cox and Joy Renfrow came from behind to win the decisive match that broke the tie.
