Tennis: Cartersville chasing region titles

By Score Atlanta

The Region 5-AAA tournament got underway Monday with No. 1 seed Cartersville cruising past the Ringgold girls 5-0 and No. 2 seed Adairsville blasting the Gordon Central girls 5-0. Cartersville will face Coahulla Creek while Adairsville will meet Sonoraville Tuesday morning for the right to advance to the region finals later today. … The Cartersville boys will meet Sonoraville in the semifinals of the Region 5-AAA tournament with Coahulla Creek meeting North Murray later Tuesday morning. Cartersville, also the No. 1 seed in the tournament, blanked Gordon Central yesterday 5-0 while Sonoraville beat Adairsville, Coahulla Creek downed Ringgold and North Murray whitewashing Lakeview- Fort Oglethorpe. … Excel Christian’s shot at making the state playoffs came to a close with a loss to Rome in the 6-A region tournament. … Lowndes will enter the Region 1-AAAAAA tournament this Thursday on fire after the boys bashed Brantley County 5-1 while the girls won 5-0. Each team finished the regular season 16-2 and the boys will enter the field as the No. 1 seed. Samuel Price won at No. 1 singles for Lowndes. The Vikings will play the winner of Colquitt County-Valdosta. The Lowndes girls will enter the tournament as the No. 2 seed and will face either Valdosta, Brunswick or Coffee. … Wesleyan and St. Pius split a pair of matches last week as the St. Pius boys handed Wesleyan a 4-1 defeat while the Wesleyan girls dominated St. Pius by a similar 4-1 score. Sophia and Savannah Strickland each won a singles match for Wesleyan as did Sarah Setplage while the doubles team of Kaitlin English-Leila Jordan picked up a win. … Hillgrove’s Matt Hill has signed to play tennis next year at UAB, but the senior still has unfinished business in the Region 4-AAAAAA tournament which continues Tuesday. Hillgrove will face Kennesaw Mountain with the winner earning the right to face either North Cobb, a Class AAAAA semifinalist one year ago, or Harrison on Thursday. North Cobb is 12-0 on the year, but Hill is undefeated on the season for 13-3 Hillgrove. Last year, the Hawks entered the AAAAA playoffs as the No. 3 seed out of Region 4-AAAAA but won a pair of matches on the road before falling to Region 2-AAAAA champion Westlake.

Cartersville usually a threat to go deep on the girls side of things undefeated year points to another possibility. For the boys Trevor Gotkowski is one of the top players in the southeast and is a senior. Should be a treat for any tennis fan to watch him at No. 1 singles.

Cartersville Hurricanes end up getting both region titles. The girls never cease to amaze me year after year. A little history note: The Cane Girls ended Westministers run of titles with one of their own in 08 or so. Very proud of that those that know the Wildcat’s domination on the girls side can understand why. Anyways way to finish undefeated for the girls and the boys holding up the trophy with them at Dellinger Park can’t ask for much more:)
