On Friday, the lady hornets’ tennis team spent the entire day at Noyes Tennis Complex where they competed against 10 high-quality teams during the Benton Team Tournament. Throughout the day, Bryton BeVelle played Singles #1 while Micah Crowe played Singles #2. Rylee Washburn & Isabella Garr played Doubles #1 while Bianca Clark & Keeley Shira played Doubles #2. There were no individual results possible on this day, only team scoring. The hornets played in Pool B against LeBlond, Benton, Maryville, & Trenton while Pool A was comprised of Savannah, St. Pius, St. Joe Central, Lafayette, & Cameron.
At the end of Pool play, Chillicothe had won Pool B outright going 4-0 all morning as a team. Savannah won Pool A going 3-0-1. This pitted Savannah & Chillicothe against each other once again. Unfortunately, Chillicothe lost the final championship match to SHS, but still left the day with 2nd Place out of all ten teams.
Coaches Chambers & Pyrtle were proud of the high level of play they saw throughout the day in the wins & losses. They were proud of how BeVelle held her own against stellar #1 players from other teams, how hard Crowe fought back in a match down 1-5 to win six straight & take the match, and how amazingly well all four of their doubles players performed going 8-0 in pool play as doubles pairs.
