Canes rally to advance to tennis Final Four; Lady Canes fall in quarterfinals


The Cartersville boys tennis team trailed 0-2 early, but rallied to beat Oconee County 3-2 and advance to the Class AAAA Final Four Wednesday evening.


Come-from-behind wins by Matthew Slocum at Line 2 singles and the Line 2 doubles team of Davis Edwards and Griffin Shaw sparked the victory.


Will Allen — at Line 1 singles — also pulled out a hard-fought 7-5, 7-5 win.


The Canes (13-7) will now face North Oconee in the state semifinals in Watkinsville. The match is required to be completed by next Tuesday.


The winner moves to the Class AAAA state championship match to be played at International Park in Clayton County on May 6.


The Cartersville girls were not as fortunate Wednesday in their state quarterfinals match.


The Lady Canes fell to Woodward Academy, 3-2.


Woodward advances to play either St. Pius or Blessed Trinity in the state semifinals.


Kenly King and Ansley Thompson picked up the two Lady Canes’ points with wins at the second and third singles lines.


The Cartersville girls season comes to a close with a 16-3 record.
