Lady Hounds take 3-1 victory at McIntosh in first round of state

The Lady Hounds downed McIntosh 3-1 last Tuesday in the opening round of the state Class 5A tennis playoffs to make the second round.

They play at Bainbridge at 2 p.m. today. Bainbridge, the top seed from Region 1, downed Ware County 4-1 in the first round.

Jones County was the third seed from Region 4, and McIntosh was the second seed from Region 3.

Tori Veal and Brenay Howard won singles matches for the Lady Hounds, and Mayson Watford and L.G. Carr won in doubles, reported coach ChoRhonda Gwaltney-Harris.

In the state playoffs, all five matches are played at the same time, and the first school to win three is the winner, so any incomplete matches at the time do not have to be finished.
