Statesboro High School Lady Devils hosted the Knights of Evans from Augusta on Friday afternoon in the first round of the state playoffs at Mill Creek Tennis Complex. Jolee Jordan and Mincey Akins jumped all over Evans at the second doubles position as they crushed them 6-0,6-0 to put the Devils up 1-0. Kate Laircey was just behind at first singles as her forehand was pushing the Evans player back close to the fence as she won 6-0,6-1 to put the Devils up 2-0. Evy Shen and Hannah Weaver were able to get the clincher at first doubles as they were able to put a lot of balls away at the net in winning 6-0,6-2 to put the Lady Devils into the Sweet 16. Julia Basquin was up 6-1,3-0 at second singles as she was playing one of her best matches of the year. Nicole Crews had also won her first set 6-1 and was just getting going in the second set. Angel Watkins and Jasmine Patel also cruised to a 6-0,6-2 victory. The Lady Devils will now take on Lakeside High School out of Atlanta Wed., April 21 (time TBA) and will host at Mill Creek.
