Berkeley Prep girls win tennis tiebreaker

In Lakeland, Berkeley Prep advanced to the region semifinals, winning a shootout over Winter Haven All Saints' 4-3 Friday. A day earlier, the teams tied for second behind Tampa Prep and a head-to-head tiebreaker was needed to determine who moved on.

The Bucs won three of five singles matches, then clinched it at No. 2 doubles behind the play of Amanda Morejon and Jaime Ayers, who won 11-9. Berkeley got singles wins from Morejon (No. 3), Sofia Kim (No. 4) and Anne Baldy (No. 5).

WINTER HAVEN — Andrea Arguello fought back from a 5-2 deficit in the second set to defeat Lake Region's Valeisha Kendrick 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) at No. 1 singles Friday at the Winter Haven Tennis Complex, a match that clinched the team championship for George Jenkins. Newsome, which entered the day tied with George Jenkins, finished second.

The Eagles host Plant at 3:30 Tuesday in the region semifinals.

George Jenkins made it 2-for-2 when a semifinals victory at

No. 1 doubles by Jonathan Munoz and Joe Sopko clinched the district title for the boys.

The Eagles won district singles titles with Scotty Williams (No. 3) and David Ward (No. 5) but lost in the finals at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4. Williams' victory was key when he survived a three-hour match to beat Newsome's Colin Edwards 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (6-8), 6-4. He was up 5-2 in the second set before Edwards came back.

Jenkins has 23 points to Newsome's 18 with the doubles finals still to be played at 9 a.m. today.

Jenkins will host Plant on Tuesday in regionals.

    INF Trevor Plouffe didn't do much with the opportunity the Rays gave him, and time ran out Tuesday when he was designated for assignment after the game.

    Plouffe hit just .178, with one homer and two RBIs, in 31 games for the Rays, his primary playing time from starting at first or third against lefties.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.
