The Heritage School’s tennis program, which produced nine All-Region players in 2013, wrapped up another successful season with the Hawks winning a Class AAA team title on Tuesday.

The Heritage School’s boys captured the school’s third GISA state tennis title, winning this year’s Class AAA championship in Augusta following three victories over the past two days

The Hawks’ 4-1 victory in Tuesday’s finals gave the school its first state title at the Class AAA level.

Clinging to a 2-1 lead with the doubles team of Grayson Parker and Will Farr and singles player Christopher Truong still on the court on Tuesday, the final matches came down to plenty of drama.

After winning the second set to even his match at a set apiece, Truong closed out the match by winning a 10-point tie breaker 10-4.

Heritage School, led by longtime coach Gail Jones, reached the championship round with a 5-0 victory over Augusta Prep and a 3-2 decision over Deerfield-Windsor.

The Hawks’ match against Deerfield-Windsor came down to No. 3 singles. With the other matches over, and the team score tie at 2-2, Truong outlasted his opponent to win the match.

Heritage School players attending the state tournament also included GISA Individual Class AAA runner-up Joe Sterrey, Hamza Khan, Jack Crawford, Lawson Harris, and Curtis Godwin.
