Jeff Davis Women’s varsity defeated the Lady Hornets 5-0. Jeff Davis boys lost a nail biter 2-3 against the Hornets. Coaches bragged on the play of Demi Rush at her singles spot versus the Hornets. Demi is a solid player, and she played really aggressively versus the Hornets. Brye Woods played the 3rd singles on the men’s side. He played a great match against Drew from Cook. The match went into a tiebreaker with Brye winning by 2 points.
Both teams traveled to Swainsboro Feb. 8. The lady Jackets defeated Swainsboro with a 5-0 win.
Chandler Henry and Caidon Diaz played second doubles for the Jackets and pulled out a close one to finish the win for the team (4-1). Lexi Girtman played first singles for the Lady Jackets and was first off the court with her win. She played super consistently, even on a windy February day. She adjusted her shots beautifully as the game progressed.
