Tennis Wrapup: Lady Braves, Seahawks stay undefeated

The Myrtle Beach and Socastee girls tennis teams remained undefeated on the season with wins over region foes on Thursday.

The Lady Braves (8-0 overall, 1-0 Region VIII-AAA) rolled to a 6-1 win over Georgetown, while the Lady Seahawks (7-0) swept North Myrtle Beach 7-0 in a match that did not count toward the region standings.

Socastee’s No. 1 singles Rachel Gresko and No. 2 Anna Brice-Cox failed to lose a game all day, winning their singles matches 6-0, 6-0 and then teaming up at No. 1 doubles to win by the same score.

No. 3 Jordan Wesel defeated Taylor Graham 6-1,6-0, No. 4 Olivia Patton downed Addie Crawford 6-0, 6-1, and No. 5 Ashlynn Burns beat Caitlyn Goodwin 6-3, 6-2.

Socastee’s lone loss, Georgetown’s No. 2 doubles partners Katie Glenn and Abby Siau over Haley Duvall and Sydney Presley, was just the second lost set of the season for the Lady Braves.

Myrtle Beach scored its third straight sweep, led by 6-0, 6-0 shutouts by No. 1 Jessie Dumas over Amber Mincey, No. 3 Emma Springs over Anna Coggshall, No. 5 Elisabeth Spielvogel over Kimarria Veren, and No. 2 doubles Catherine Truluck and Katharine Woodard over Jessie Ella and Jeica Beasley.

No. 2 Rachel Berkey defeated Caitlyn Wolf 6-3, 6-1, then joined Dumas in No. 1 doubles for an 8-1 win. No. 4 Carolyn Gore defeated Makala Gore 6-2, 6-0 to complete the sweep. Myrtle Beach officially opens region play Tuesday at Wilson.
