Gus Allen
GUS ALLEN TEAMED with Mac Lindsay to win at second doubles as Camden upended Blythewood on Wednesday.
It was a long six days for the Camden High tennis team.That was the length of time the Bulldogs had to wait before they returned to the courts for a match following last Thursday’s 4-2 conference loss to Dreher.On Wednesday, Roger Smoak and company showed no lasting effects from the setback to the Blue Devils by pummeling visiting Blythewood, 5-1, in a non-region match. The victory raised Camden’s record to 9-3 on the season and gave the Dogs a dose of confidence heading into Thursday’s pairing versus three-time defending state AAA champion Chapin.“This was really an important match for us,” said Smoak after career win number 582. “Anytime you lose, you want to try and get back on track with a win and get your confidence back.“I thought that this match would be close,” Smoak added.
