The Boy's Tennis Banquet was held on Thursday, May 19th, at Quaker Steak & Lube.  Awards were given out by Coach Taylor and fun was had by all.  Listed below are the awards that were given:

All Region was awarded to Wilson Mathewes, Alan Pearce & Loic Delaby.

Academic All-State A's was awarded to Seniors Wilson Mathewes, Tyler Chaffee and David Malpica.

The Most Valuable Player Award went to Wilson Mathewes.

Senior Tyler Chaffee was awarded the Maverick Award.

Ryan Wilson, a Freshman, was voted Most Improved by his teammates.

Wilson Mathewes was selected to play on the North/South Team.  This selection is for Top Senior players only.  The North/South competition is being held at Myrtle Beach on May 23rd & 24th.

Wilson Mathewes and Alan Pearce were selected to participate in the State Singles Championships.  This was held on May 20th and 21th in Lexington, SC.  The top 32 players in the state were selected to participate in this event. 

Receiving their first year letters were Senior David Malpica, Freshman Thomas Sickle, Freshman Nick Piper and 8th Grader Jason Mathewes.

The Team had a tremendously successful season this year.  At the Banquet, Coach Taylor noted that the record for this team for the past two years is 32-5.  That in itself is impressive, but what makes it even more impressive, is that the five losses were to the teams that won the State Championship in 2010 and 2011.  No other team has beaten this team of young men other than State Championship teams.  That is quite an accomplishment.
