Region 5-AA Runner-Up Braves Hosting GAC

2015 Region 5-AA Runner-Up Braves (L-R):

2015 Region 5-AA Runner-Up Braves (L-R): Cody Norris, Tucker Barr, Hunter Clark, Levi Brown, Trey Wiggins, Lane Nelms, Jackson Templeton, Brian Hill, and Coach Rich Fendley

(Franklin) — The Braves men’s tennis team finished as Region 5-AA Runner-Ups last week at the region tournament last week at HHS.

The boys knocked off Bowdon in the semi-finals before dropping the championship match to a seasoned Bremen Blue Devil team.

This was an impressive seventh time in eight seasons of tennis that the boys have advanced to the region title match.

Coach Rich Fendley’s squad will face another strong opponent in the state tournament today as they host GAC (Greater Atlanta Christian), the third seed from Region 6-AA beginning at 2:00 p.m.

“I am very proud of our boys this season,” said Fendley after the match last week. “Even though we have won the region title before I think this may have been our most solid team ever — we just haven’t always had to deal with Bremen in the past.”

Senior Cody Norris played at #1 this season with Trey Wiggins and Tucker Barr handling the other single’s slots.

On the doubles side, Levi Brown teamed with Lane Nelms and Hunter Clark teamed up with Jackson Templeton.
