Despite the loss by the Tigers (3-2, 3-1 Class 2A, Section 5), Wesley Jarnigan remained undefeated (5-0) in singles play with an 8-4 victory over Lauderale County's Landyn Masoner.
Red Bay's Anthony Horton improved to 4-0 in sectional matches with an 8-4 win over Dillon Birdwell.
Jarnigan and Matthew Young improved to 3-1 in sectional doubles play with an 8-4 win over Dusty Eady and Chad Menard.

Young and Gray both fell to 3-1 in sectional singles play, and Horton and Johnson are now 3-1 in sectional doubles.
"Our goal every year is to win section,” Red Bay coach Sonny Glasgow said. &#8220Although our boys team only returned one starter from last year, we have surprised some schools and we possibly may win our section tournament. We have an excellent chance to qualify for the state tournament.
