 trip to the capital city proved beneficial for the Camden High girls’ tennis team which evened its Region 4-AAA mark at 1-1 following Tuesday’s 6-0 win over host Lower Richland.
The Lady Bulldogs started fast and never let up in route to the shutout victory.
Junior Helen Koutroulakis, playing at number four singles, was the first player off the court earning a 6-0, 6-1 win over Leah McRant. She was quickly joined by Camden's top two players, Katie Tiller and Madison Hudson, who both earned 6-0, 6-0 wins in the first and second singles, respectively.
 “Helen’s been working hard and it was nice for her to go out and set the tone early to set the pace for our team,” said CHS head coach Stephen Sutusky. Hudson and Tiller's wins helped ensure at least a tie for the Lady Dogs. 
“We, obviously, count on Katie and Madison to win a bunch of matches for us. They went out and did that again in this match," said Sutusky. 
Third singles player Kelsey Williams clinched the victory when she stepped off the court with a 6-0, 6-0 win.  “Having our top three players win without dropping a game was a great way to start the match.  Our girls challenged themselves to dominate and they did just that,” Sutusky said. 
With senior Virginia Beth Ariail out of the match with a knee injury, CHS  junior Kensey Stephens saw her first action of the year and came away with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Ayanna Bolton at number five singles. 
“It was great for Kensey to go out and get a match in,” Sutusky said. “Not only was she competitive, but she really controlled the entire match.  Our girls were just so excited for Kensey to go out and get a win.”
The first-year Camden second doubles tandem of Clarke Allen and Virginia Lackey notched their first win together as they dominated the first set , winning 6-0, before etching out a 6-4 win in the second set. 
“It was a great win for doubles and they really got off to a solid start, they need to finish strong though,” Sutusky said. “They are getting better every time out and are really starting to play well together.”
Following Thursday’s home region pairing with Dreher, the Lady Bulldogs host Westwood next Tuesday in a 4:30 p.m. start.
