Tennis: Myrtle Beach beats county rivals CF, Conway

mbtennis-doublesThe Myrtle Beach High School boys tennis team scored back-to-back victories over county rivals Conway and Carolina Forest on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Seahawks swept the Tigers 6-0, then beat Carolina Forest 4-2 in a tight contest. Up 3-2, the Seahawks needed a win at #2 doubles for the match winning fourth point. The doubles team of Grant Singleton and David Truluck cruised to a 6-2 first-set win. As the last several matches wrapped up, the crowd gathered around the remaining court seeing action.

Carolina Forest’s Kyle Gabriel and Shrayon Shetty turned up the heat with aggressive net play during the 2nd set, and just as the sun was setting, the Seahawks broke serve to bring it to 6-6 and force the tiebreaker.

After losing the lead earlier in the set, Singleton and Truluck swung the momentum back in their favor as the tiebreaker began. Singleton’s speed and court coverage along with the senior Truluck’s steady, consistent play made quick work of the Panther duo, taking the tiebreaker 7-1 and sealing the win for the Seahawks.
