Boys Tennis Defeats Galloway

April 1st, 2011

The Mercy boys tennis team hosted Galloway yesterday in their last regular season match for 2011.  It was a great day for Bobcat Tennis as the boys took home the overall victory, winning several close matches, 3-2.

Singles players Lake McGuffie and Russell Goemaere played solid tennis, trading games with their opponents before finally taking their matches 8-5 and 9-7 respectively.  The doubles teams of Chris Donnay/Justin James and Robert Gould/Demetrious Dabadee played well but fell behind in their matches early, unable to climb all the way out for the win. 

The doubles team of Eric Morris & Bockarie Amara were able to adjust to fix early errors to overcome a 0-3 start and win their match 8-5.  Morris & Amara end the regular season  2-0 as a doubles team.

Both boys and girls teams will compete in the first round of the Region 9-A tournament the week of April 11th.  the girls will host First Presbyterian Day School at OLM while the boys will travel to Eagles Landing Christian Academy.

Congratulations to the tennis team on a great regular season and good luck in the post-season!
