Five days after his team lost to Bluffton in the second round of the AAA state tennis playoffs, Camden head coach Roger Smoak took a Sunday afternoon drive. While passing by the Rectory Square tennis courts, he saw five of his players (including four returnees) out on the court playing doubles. That, said the state’s all-time winningest tennis coach, spoke volumes as to the character of his 2001 squad which turned in a 19-1 record in a season in which the Bulldogs played with the bare minimum seven players, at times.
