The Dawson County High School boys’ tennis team played Woody Gap last week and came away with a slim 3-2 win.
The match was a tune-up for the region tournament that is just around the corner.
The Tigers have three remaining region matches and must win all three of them to qualify.
Tiger Cameron Millholland won an exciting match over Andy Friesen, 8-7, for a 1-0 team lead.
Millholland played number one singles and had to fight back from a 7-4 deficit to pull out the victory.
“This was a big win for Cameron,” said Head Coach Chris Lundy.
“I was really proud of how he was able to get his head back into it. I’m very excited and he is only a freshman. When he is able to block out everything around him and focus on his match, he is going to be very good,” Lundy added.
At number two singles, Spencer Roper defeated Corey Fischer from Woody Gap, 8-2.
“Spencer is one of these super nice and quiet guys that takes a loss pretty hard and bottles it up. He played great and I’m sure that confidence will carry over into region play,” Lundy said.
Lane Venters, at number three singles, lost to Corey Fischer, 8-4, but ended up wining the match when Fischer had to forfeit because he had already played at number two singles.
Venters is also a freshman for Lundy’s team.
Dawson lost both doubles matches.
“All in all, it was a great team effort that I hope will carry us into next week with some confidence,” Lundy said.
