The Colquitt County tennis teams met Coffee for the second time in a week on Tuesday and, unfortunately for the Lady Packers and Packers, the results were the same.

When Coffee took a sweep in Douglas on March 11, the results did not count in the Region 1-AAAAAA standings.

The Lady Trojans and Trojans took 5-0 wins at Packer Park on Tuesday that do count in the standings.

The Colquitt girls fall to 6-9 overall and 1-2 in the region.

The Lady Packers were forced to play without No. 1 singles player Conley Ward and Rachel Bostick, one-half of their fine No. 2 doubles team. Both were sick.

Haley Trebony moved up to play No. 1 singles and lost 1-6, 1-6 to Hannah Greene. Courtney Terrell played No. 2 singles and fell to Lee Williams, 6-6, 6-4, 2-6. Carey Tyler played No. 3 singles and lost to Holly Vaughn 3-6, 1-6. Anna Barber and Shelby Thomas lost 2-6, 4-6 to Sierra Childers and Amanda Thomas at No. 1 doubles and Desirae Cash and Shianna Corley lost to Catherine Evans and Heidi Spikes 6-7(4-7), 1-6.

For the Packers, Nick Nichols lost at No. 1 singles 1-6, 3-6; Cody Jenkins lost at No. 2 singles, 4-6, 3-6; and Lance Shealy played 34 games before falling 7-5, 5-7, 4-6 at No. 3 singles.

Nick Mobley and Jack Holloway played No. 1 doubles and lost 0-6, 4-6.

Drew Davis and Jeremy Johnson lost at No. 2 doubles in three sets 1-6, 6-1, 1-6.

“They are strong everywhere in their lineup,” said Packers coach Chris Naquin, whose team falls 8-7 overall and 2-1 in the region.

“For seeding purposes, we need to get to work.”

Colquitt will travel to Brunswick on Friday for a pair of region matches. Region matches against Lowndes at home and at Tift County also remain.
