Indians beat Westlake to begin region action

East Coweta tennis teams split Monday’s Region 3-AAAAAA opener at home against Westlake led by a 3-2 victory by the Indians.

Moises Escobar won a decisive match at No. 3 singles for East Coweta’s boys, who improved to 5-3 overall heading into today’s region match at Tri-Cities. The Indians were coming off last weekend’s efforts at the annual Marietta Invitational where the team defeated Norcross 4-1 and fell to Newnan 3-2.

Saturday’s match against the Cougars, which did not count in the region standings, saw East Coweta sweep doubles matches. Andy and Oliver Truong earned a 6-1, 6-1 victory while improving their records to 5-2 this year.

At No. 2 singles, Nick Smith and Jun Kwon Rec won 6-2, 6-1 while improving to 3-1. All three singles matches were well contested led by Mitchell Corley’s third-set tiebreaker with Newnan’s Landon Goolsby, who held on at No. 2 singles for a 4-6, 7-6, 10-5 win.

Matt Byers dropped a 5-7, 6-7 decision to Newnan’s No. 1 player William Ballou while Escobar fell to Mikey Miller 4-6, 5-7.

The county rivals will meet at East Coweta to close the regular on April 1.

On Monday, against Westlake, East Coweta’s boys picked up forfeit victories at both doubles positions to go with Escobar’s win in singles play.

The Lady Lions, meanwhile, held off East Coweta’s girls 4-1.

Gillian Revoir earned a 6-1, 6-2 victory for the Lady Indians at No. 3 singles. Priscilla Truong fell 2-6, 1-6 at the No. 1 position while Jasmine Keller took a tough 3-6, 6-7 decision at No. 2 singles.

In doubles action, Raelee Heinz and Taylor Morris battled back in a 0-6, 6-7(3-7) loss while Nicole Tansey and Jaycee Ebert fell 2-6, 4-6 at the No. 2 spot.
