CHS falls in state matches

RIDGELAND — The 2013 tennis season came to a close for eight Cathedral High School players Tuesday and Wednesday.

Cathedral sent eight athletes to the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 1A state championship matches, but no one was able to come away with the ultimate prize.

In the first-round matches Tuesday, boys doubles partners Silas Whitaker and Xavier Hawkins fell to St. Aloyius, 0-6, 0-6. Nic Webb lost to St. Aloysius’ Aaron Mathis, 0-6, 0-6, in boys singles.

In girls doubles, Wesley Callaway and Paige Foster fell to St. Joseph Catholic School, 1-6, 1-6. Taylor Beesley won her girls singles match against Tupelo Christian, 6-1, 6-2, and mixed doubles partners Sarah Beth Willard and Mark Iles defeated West Lincoln, 6-1, 6-0.

On Wednesday, in the semifinal round, Beesley lost to St. Al 0-1, 4-6, and Iles and Willard fell to St. Al 4-6, 1-0, 0-1.

Despite falling short, Cathedral tennis coach Kate Ellard said she was happy with how things turned out this year.

“We took a lot of younger players (to state) this year, and we also had a really good group of seniors and older players,” she said. “Everyone worked extremely hard. I had eight kids go to state, so I’m extremely proud of how everyone played.”
