Beaufort High’s boys tennis team avenged an earlier loss and secured the Region 7-4A title with a 4-2 win at Hilton Head High on Monday.
Griffin Stone and Tucker Martin both won critical tiebreakers to help the Eagles take three of the five singles courts, and Bodie Daniel and Casey Hoogenboom teamed up to win at No. 2 doubles. Mitchell Russell also won a singles match to help the Eagles clinch the victory.
The previous meeting resulted in a 4-3 Hilton Head victory, so the Eagles earned the top seed in the Class 4A playoffs by virtue of winning more courts in the two head-to-head meetings.
Beaufort High also swept Colleton County 6-0 on Thursday in a Region 7-4A match.
