The Madison County girls’ tennis team hopes the region tournament goes much like the regular season did.
The Lady Raiders (12-2, 10-0) finished with an unblemished mark in 8A-AAAA play, beating Habersham Central 4-1 Tuesday.
Madison County now carries a no. 1 seed into the region tournament, which starts today at Madison County High School.
“The girls wrapped up a great subregion going 10-0,” coach Keith Strickland said.
Before beating Habersham Central, Madison County routed both Winder-Barrow and Clarke Central.
Madison County proved more dominant in its rematch with Winder-Barrow April 9 than in the initial meeting.
Winder-Barrow altered its lineup, but it mattered little as the Lady Raiders coasted to a 5-0 win. The Lady Bulldoggs moved their no. 2 singles player to bolster its no. 2 doubles team, but Alexia Supakorndej and Kaitlyn Hale responded with a 6-4, 7-5 win.
At no. 3 singles, Audra Minish won in straight sets (6-3, 6-2) to avenge a loss to Crystal Powell earlier this season.
Smith and Bowen won easily at no. 1 and 2 singles and Powers and LaZear prevailed in straight sets at no. 1 doubles.
“Molly, Jeannie and Sarah and Sam continued their great play,” Strickland said.
The Madison County girls notched another 5-0 victory a day earlier, blanking Clarke Central.
