Hilton Head Prep repeats as SCISAA 2-A girls tennis state champs

Hilton Head Prep defeated Trinity-Byrnes, 5-2, on Saturday at the Palmetto Tennis Center in Sumter to claim its fourth straight SCISAA Class 2-A girls tennis state championship.

"It was a great season," Dolphins head coach Brian Parkkonen said. "The girls finished undefeated, and it's always a bonus when you don't drop a match. It was a good match, the most contested that they were in all season. It was good to find out how bad they wanted it."

The Dolphins finished 14-0-1.
