In a lengthy, but thrilling match, the Camden girls’ tennis team needed better than three hours before coming away with a hard-fought 4-3 win over Hartsville last Thursday night in a pairing contested at the CHS Athletic Complex.
 The Lady Bulldogs got off to a quick 2-0 lead as seniors Katie Tiller and Virginia Beth Ariail both earned straight-set wins, each only dropping one game in the two sets. 
“Those two were off the court pretty quick and really put us in contention to win the match outright,” said CHS head coach Stephen Sutusky. 
Camden’s second doubles team of Virginia Lackey and Clarke Allen split a pair of sets before dropping the third set tie-breaker 10-7. “Doubles lost the first set, but came roaring back,” Sutusky said of the first-year team.  “Virginia and Clarke get better every week and nearly pulled out a bit of an upset.”
Number two singles player Madison Hudson then found herself in a nail-biter with the Red Foxes’ Ashley Light.  Hudson won the first set, 6-4, coming from behind to do so, while Light earned a 7-5 come-from-behind second set win.  Hudson would prevail in a back-and-forth tie-breaker, taking an  11-9 decision. 
“Madison really fought hard with her back against the wall to set up a first doubles match,” said Sutusky.  “Anytime we can push a match to our top doubles team we feel pretty comfortable.”
Tiller and Hudson would give Camden the victory with a straight set win over Hartsville’s Carley Phillips and Ashley Light. 
The Bulldogs will host West Florence, in a non-region match,  today at 4:30 p.m. as part of Senior Night before ending the regular season with three consecutive road matches beginning with a Thursday pairing with Dreher.
