On an afternoon when their two seniors were given the day off, the Camden High tennis team had more than enough talent on hand to upend Lower Richland, 5-1, last Wednesday in a Region 4-AAA match played in Columbia.
The win evened the Lady Bulldogs’ conference mark at 3-3 and boosted their post-season possibilities as four teams from each region will advance to the AAA state tournament which begins on Oct. 31.
Kelsey Williams was moved into Madison Hudson’s spot at first singles and the junior got the visitors off on the right foot with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Aryanna Bolton. The match was Williams’ first at the top singles position as Camden held out both Hudson and Maggie Wehunt. 
“Kelsey has been playing well this year and she set the tone for us in this match,” said CHS head coach Stephen Sutusky. 
At second singles, Katrinia Harrison gave LR its lone victory as she defeated Virginia Lackey, who moved up two spots in the rotation. Camden’s Clarke Allen was the second player off the court as she downed Erica Scriven, 6-2, 6-0. 
“Clarke played well in the match and actually played better as the match played on, which is always a bonus,” said Sutusky. 
Senior Miranda Brown saw her first singles action, playing at number four singles, as she upended Alaysia Washington in convincing fashion, 6-2, 6-1. At the fifth singles spot, eighth- grader Mackenzie Pendleton cruised by Leah McRant , 6-2, 6-4 to earn her first singles victory. 
Playing second doubles for the first time, the Lady Bulldog pairing of sophomores Larkin Kelly and Margaret Guy rallied to defeat Destiny Muldrow and Kendra Harris. After Kelly and Guy dropped the first set, 6-2, they eaked out a 7-5 victory and then, earned a 10-8 tiebreaker win to win the match. 
“I couldn't be more proud of those two for bouncing back after dropping the first set and winning the match,” said Sutusky of his second doubles tandem. 
“Overall, we competed well and got a ton of experience for some of our girls that haven't played as much.”
