Placeholder Image
It was far from their best match of the season, but you won’t hear Roger Smoak complaining too much about Camden’s 5-1 tennis victory over host Sumter in a Wednesday match which was postponed from a day earlier due to rain.The victory was the fourth straight for the Bulldogs who improved to 5-3 on the season.“We really weren’t into this match the way we should have been,” Smoak said. “We’ve won four in a row, now, and we ought to be really confident and be excited about going out there and playing.“We didn’t play our best, by any means, but the bottom line is winning and we won this match.”The Dogs took four of five singles matches, starting at the top with junior Nelson Semple handing Nick Smith a 6-2, 6-1, loss. Ben Goodrich then swept past Brad Watkins, 6-3, 6-1 in second singles while Thomas Marshall breezed his way by Patrick Collins in fourth singles, 6-3, 6-1.
