Beaufort High’s Graeme Angus won in straight sets against Bluffton on Wednesday afternoon and remains undefeated at 8-0. Beaufort head tennis coach David Reidmeyer said, “Graeme, an 8th grader, is undefeated this year 8-0. He brings his best each day. The best thing about him is his work ethic. He practices with the same intensity as he does when playing a match. The best thing about this is that his teammates follow his lead with this and have become better players.” Photo by Bob Sofaly.

Eagles still perfect in region play 


The reigning champs have held serve, and now they’re ready for their chance to close out another Region 7-4A title. Beaufort High boys tennis reeled off four more region wins — all shutouts — in a one-week span to remain undefeated in region play heading into a second showdown with top challenger James Island on Thursday in Beaufort. 

The Eagles racked up 6-0 wins over Colleton County, Bluffton, and May River — twice — leaving them one win over the Trojans away from back-to-back region crowns. Beaufort won 4-2 at James Island on March 16, winning four of five singles matches. The teams split a pair of three-set matches on the singles courts and another on the doubles court, so the matchup could swing either way.
