Eagles’ Angus earns All-State honors



After leading his Beaufort High boys tennis team to the brink of a state championship, Graeme Angus capped off his season with an impressive showing in the Class 4A/5A state singles tournament last week, finishing in the final eight to earn all-state honors — and he’s only a seventh-grader. 

The Eagles’ top singles player had to battle through the consolation bracket after dropping a tough three-set match in the first round, falling to Myrtle Beach’s Rivers Cahill 7-5, 5-7, 10-8 before winning four straight in the back draw to claim a spot on the all-state team. 

Angus breezed through his first consolation match 8-0 before grinding out two 8-4 victories and cruising to an 8-1 win in the consolation quarterfinals. He finally ran out of steam in the consolation semifinals, falling 8-1 to Greenwood’s Graeme Simpson. 

The seventh-grader will be the cornerstone of the Eagles’ program for years to come, making coach David Riedmayer’s team a contender to get back to the state championship year after year.
