Clinton boys’ tennis denied state title

The Clinton boys’ tennis team saw its state championship dreams end one victory short of the ultimate goal.

Defending state champion Hanahan, in a match delayed three days due to weekend rain, overpowered Clinton in the Cayce Tennis Center  to pick up a 6-0 victory and win the SCHSL Class 3A title Tuesday evening.

Clinton picked up only one set in the six matches contested as the No. 2 team of Anders Orr and Zack Bedenbaugh forced its match to a third set super tie-breaker before falling 10-6 in the final set.

The match was the final one as a Red Devil for Robert Powell, the only senior on Clinton’s roster this year.
