Tennis Teams in Regional Meet

by Mike Organ

The mixed doubles team of Ben Spencer and Ally Abshire defeated Lexington's #2 mixed team of Sara Lay and Kaelan Blok in the district finals. Both teams will play in the Regional Tourney that will have started on Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. when most of you read this. The boy's doubles team of Caleb McBride and Jacob Goode also won district.

McBride-Goode will start Regional play at 1 p.m. Thurdsay at the Texas State tennis complex in San Marcos. This will be the young men's first trip to the next level.

Spencer-Abshire is another story all together. Spencer has been to state for two years (winning a gold last year with Julian Bexley and teaming with Bexley for a bronze medal in 2007). Abshire teamed with Reagan Janda in advancing to state last year. The two present a formidable team in Region IV. They should be favored to win the meet in San Marcos.
