Receiving three wins from the second half of the ladder, the Camden High girls’ tennis team improved to 4-2 on the season with a 4-2 win over host Sumter last Thursday.

The non-conference pairing capped a three matches in as many days week for Pamela Smoak’s troops which finished 2-1 for the week with wins over 5A rivals Lufoff-Elgin and Sumter sandwiching a Wednesday loss to 4A Hartsville.

Against the Lady Gamecocks on Thursday, Anne Margaret Hutto downed Sumter’s Jordan Shupping in a pair of 6-1 wins at second singles. In fourth singles, Camden’s Emily Guy won, 6-3, 6-1, while teammate Eliza Reames closed out singles action by knocking off Carmen Carrigan at fifth singles, 6-3, 6-4.

In second doubles, the Lady Bulldog tandem of Mary Dawson Lindsay and Madison Montgomery defeated Madelyn Jordan and Andrea Clark, 6-3, 6-0.

Sumter won at first and third singles with Whitney Crawford stopping Imani Wyatt, 6-0, 6-4, while Lexi Setzer was tripped up by Burgess Dubose at third singles, 6-4, 6-4.

Smoak, who is in her first season as the Lady Bulldogs’ head coach, said she could not have asked for anything more from what she received from her girls last week.

“We had three matches in a row after the Labor Day holiday and the temperature was extremely hot,” she said. “I’m so proud of our team for so many reasons. They are competitors, work hard in practice and matches and try to apply the coaching we give them. They never give up no matter what the score is or no matter how hot it is. And, they support each other; cheering and encouraging each other. 

“They are improving as the season goes on. And it is a privilege to coach this team.”
