Tennis teams drop matches to Lowndes

MOULTRIE — The short-handed Colquitt County girls tennis team was no match for defending region champion Lowndes on Thursday, falling 1-4.

And the Vikings made it a sweep winning the last match at No. 2 singles to take a 3-2 win over the Packers.

The Colquitt County girls have lost senior Erica Mobley, perhaps for the season, to a serious ankle injury.

And they also played on Thursday without Courtney Terrell, who was at another school function.

The revamped lineup played hard, but was unable to hold off the Vikettes.

At No. 1 singles, Conley Ward fell to Taylor Vinge 2-6, 1-6; Anna Barber played No. 2 singles and lost to Alden Minick; and Lindsey Stapleton lost to Emily Singletary at No. 3 singles, 0-6, 0-6.

Hannah Radney and Haley Trebony played No. 1 doubles and fell 0-6, 1-6 to Lori Taylor and Laina Taylor.

The No. 2 doubles team of Ansley Moore and Aislin Sheffield got the Lady Packers only point with a 0-6, 0-6 win.

“We’re hoping to get Erica back,” Lady Packers coach Holly Lewis said. “But I thought Anna and Lindsey each a did a good job. And Hannah and Haley played well. They improved during the match.

“There are three places I think we can win against them. So I think we’ll be OK if we get everyone back.”

The Colquitt County boys won both doubles matches, but lost at No. 1 and No. 3 singles.

The match came down to the No. 2 singles match between the Packers Cody Jenkins and the Vikings John Folds.

Jenkins won the first set 7-5, but Folds evened the match with a 4-6 win the second set.

Folds won the tiebreaker 10-6 to give the Vikings the victory.

Colquitt County’s Nick Mobley and Nick Nichols won at No. 1 doubles, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 and Jeremy Johnson and Drew Davis won at No. 2 doubles 6-4, 6-4 over Josh Fricker and Greg Rasmussen.

But David Forehand fell to Samuel Price 1-6, 3-6 at No. 1 singles and Lance Shealy fell to Ben Burkhalter 1-6, 4-6 at No. 3 singles.

“I wanted to see how we’d do with our full lineup,” coach Chris Naquin said. “And we were in it. A couple of bounces the other way and we win.”

In junior varsity matches, McCants Plymel won 8-1; Jack Barber won 8-3; Ashton Owens won 8-0; Phillip Long and Cameron Johnson won 8-0; and John Buck Eunice and Rusty Watson won 8-1.

Colquitt is scheduled to play host to Brunswick at 4 p.m., but with rain expected, a decision on whether to hold the match will be made by noon today.

The tennis teams will be home on Tuesday to play host to Coffee and will play Tift County on Wednesday at Packer Park to make a match that was rained out.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
