North Hall’s girls tennis team locked up the Region 7-AAA title and a home match in the first round of the playoffs by defeating Greater Atlanta Christian 3-0 in the region championship Thursday at Dawson County.
The Lady Trojans will begin the playoffs next week against an opponent to be determined.

“The girls are really excited,” North Hall coach Bob Woodworth said. “They’re on cloud nine.”

Lauren Davis (6-1, 6-2) and Christen Barnes (6-0, 6-0) won in singles for North Hall. The Lady Trojans also got a win in doubles play from Carsen Baumgartner/Raquel Kallab (6-2, 6-3).

The North Hall boys finished as Region 7-AAA runners-up after losing to Greater Atlanta Christian 3-0. The Trojans will also host a first-round playoff game next week, though their opponent has not yet been determined.

Both the boys and girls team advanced to the state semifinals last year, where they lost to Marist.
