Prep Tennis From Tues 5-17: Region 3 A-AA Indiv. Finals

Recommended Posts


Three Spring Fling veterans won region titles Tuesday at The Champions Club during the A-AA Region 3 tennis finals to earn return trips to next week’s state tournament.


Hixson Seniors Alex Condra (doubles) and Carl Phillips (singles) and Collegedale’s Matti Sue Nafie (doubles) are making their second trip to the state.


Girls Singles: Christina Amos (Boyd Buchanan) defeated Kinsey Anderson (Silverdale) for her first region title and a spot in the state final eight bracket. To help her prepare for her first appearance at Spring Fling she can take the advice of her coach Tara Garner who won two state singles crowns for the Bucs.


Boys Singles: Hixson’s Carl Phillips rallied to defeat Daniel Cox (Red Bank), 1-6,6-4, 6-4 for the region championship. Phillips,who played in the state doubles tournament a year ago for the Wildcats, trailed 4-2 in the third set before winning the final four games.


Girls Doubles: Collegedale’s Matti Sue Nafie won the region doubles crown as a sophomore in 2014 and is now headed back to the state with a new partner in fellow senior Britton McElroy after they defeated Brittany and Brianna Canty (Brainerd), 7-5, 6-2.


“This is their first year playing together and are like sponges soaking up everything I tell them as far as strategy, playing together on the court and communicating throughout the match,†said coach Matt Nafie.


“Our goal was to mentally tough throughout the match and not get down on ourselves no matter what,†said Matti Sue.


Boys Doubles: Hixson seniors Alex Condra and Richard Vuong defeated Holden McElroy-Colton Lang (Collegedale), 6-0, 6-1. Condra headed back to state for the second straight year as he was state runner-up in singles a year ago.

Valedictory Speech: Alex Condra’s valedictory speech is titled “Ready or Not†and he gives it Saturday during graduation ceremonies.


He can take a page out of his own speech as he and the Wildcats take on Notre Dame Friday in a state quarterfinals match with a berth in the state tournament on the line.


“Ready or Notâ€, Condra will be playing in the No.1 singles and doubles spots against the Irish with a chance to play at least one more team match in next week’s state tournament.


Good Event: Kudos to Red Bank coach Glen Wagner for a well run tournament for the two days.
