“They were really good,” Griffin High tennis coach Will Orbin said of the Region 1-AAAA fourth seeded Hardaway Lady Golden Hawks.
Amy Davis lost to Laura Chapman 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 singles, while Rebecca Hill lost to Michelle Nickerson 6-3, 6-1 at No. 2 singles and the No. 1 doubles team of Sarah Mallett and Bryoni Coggins lost 6-1, 6-1 to Jamillia Burges and Kyra Ellison.
Griffin’s No. 3 singles player, Emily Warwick, trailed Amber Thomas 6-2 when the overall team match was decided.
Region 4-AAAA champion Griffin, which is on spring break, forfeited a point at No. 2 doubles.
“We were strong in the No. 1 and No. 3 singles and No. 1 doubles all year and we were strong again today,” said Hardaway head coach Jonathan Gibson.
The match was delayed an hour because of rain.
“It was one heck of a season,” said Orbin, a long-time football coach who coached tennis for the first time ever. “It has been a pleasure to coach these girls.”
