Congratulations to Matt Oliver, Davis Phillips and Cooper Steinour for being invited to and participating in the SCHSL State Singles Tournament the past two days. What an honor to have three amazing young men representing the island.
Both Matt Oliver and Davis Phillips advanced to earn and medal as All-State athletes. Due to weather conditions Davis Phillips match did not finish and he placed 5th in the State alongside a Spartanburg player. Davis also earned based on coaches voted this year’s Sportsmanship Award.
Matt Oliver worked his way into the finals. The score was 1:1 with Matt up 15 – love against a Spartanburg athlete when the rain came and the SCHSL awarded both players the title State Singles Champion. As the season ends for the team with a State title, overall record of 19-2 and these individual athlete awards, Matt Oliver plays next weekend in the All-Star North/South match hopefully leading the Southern team to a victory.
