Blue Devils put a dent into Bulldogs playoff hopes

Of all his team’s losses this season, Camden High tennis coach Roger Smoak said this one stung the most.After falling to Dreher, 4-3, in Columbia earlier this season, the Bulldogs saw the door to their AAA state playoffs hopes close a bit more as Dreher left the CHS courts with a 4-2 win on Thursday.The defeat dropped the Bulldogs to 6-7 overall and 1-7 in Region 4-AAA play.“This was probably the most disappointing loss of our season, especially since it’s the last match before spring vacation and we’ll have a long time to think about it,” Smoak said. “Plus, it came at home and we take pride in playing and winning on our home courts.”Camden collected its two wins in first and second singles. Nelson Semple was extended to a third set tie-breaker at first singles before getting past Evan Hamner, 3-6, 6-4, 11-9.
