Coaches comments: BOYS-- "We have all new doubles teams, and it's too early to tell how well we'll do. We'll just try to improve as the year goes on." GIRLS --"We basically have the same team back from the last two years and are working on our doubles teams right now."
The Carroll County Sun's outlook: BOYS -- Coach Carnes is busy putting together all new doubles teams and doesn't really know what to expect from this year's squad. Theprongs, a junior, will be the team's No. 1 singles player. Seniors Brad Medairy and Bill Kerner return will play vital roles as well. Carnes is looking for improvement as the year goes on. Look for the Cavs to be in the middle of the pack in the county race. GIRLS -- Carnes may not admit it, but he has a roster full of experienced talent that could go a long, long way. With nearly everyone returning fromlast year's 17-1 team, South Carroll has to be considered in a classof their own in the county. Among those returning is Medvetz, who was the No. 1 seeded singles county champ last year. Seniors Baker, Conaway and Masters will compliment Medvetz. The list goes on as Carnes has a team that has been together for three years now. Look for the Cavs to repeat last year's 17-1 effort and possibly be even stronger.
