Tennis State Tournament – Elite 8 Results
We had a total of 15 local teams – boys and girls – take the court for the GHSA State Tournament. After one round of play, there remained 10 teams in the hunt. Only two remained in the Quarterfinals, with Commerce and Stephens girls staying alive. Here are the Elite 8 results.
COMMERCE 1, IRWIN CO 3 (GIRLS)
#1 Commerce girls, like the boys, automatically advanced to the Sweet 16 with a first round bye, and took on Trion early. That was a 4-0 win, giving the Commerce Lady Tigers a trip to the Elite 8 against Irwin County, where the Lady Tigers fell 3-1 to end their season.
STEPHENS CO 3, MORGAN CO 2 (GIRLS)
#2 Stephens County advanced to the Sweet 16 with a dominating 5-0 win over Sandy Creek, and then took down #1 seed Murray County, 3-1 on the road. In the Elite 8 against Morgan County, The Lady Indians took a narrow 3-2 win to advance to the Final Four against GAC.
