Richmond Hill tennis teams put themselves on firm footing for the region and state playoffs this weekend with a solid defeat of another region team from near Augusta.
The RHHS boys are girls soccer teams are continuing their hot streaks, winning games against South Effingham on Friday and against Statesboro on Saturday.
It was not the game most envisioned after Richmond Hill got their season off to a fast 7-1 start. That tempo has now been slowed with four Wildcat losses in a row, the latest two coming in a five inning, 10-0, region 3-AAA opening loss to South Effingham and then a 9-0 loss to the Effingham County Rebels on Saturday.
The BCHS Redskins traveled to Portal for a game against region opponent the Portal Panthers where they faced a devastating loss.

The BCHS Redskin baseball team beat Savannah Country Day 4-3 which included a no-hitter and nine strike-outs from pitcher Wesley Wilkes.

For five complete innings on Tuesday, Richmond Hill's Scott Strickland flirted with a no-hitter against Richmond Hill's old nemesis Savannah Christian, but for five innings his teammates failed to provide him with any run support. It would take a rally in the final two innings to give the Wildcats and Strickland the 4-3 well deserved victory.
