There's only one team left playing tennis in the Powder Springs-Lithia Springs area this season.
If the Hillgrove Lady Hawks wants to continue their run to the state tournament, they're going to have to do something no other tennis team has done this year: beat Valdosta.
The Lady Wildcats are 20-0 on the year, which includes a 5-0 win last week over Bradwell Institute in the first round of the state playoffs. Hillgrove advanced out of the first round themselves with a 4-1 win over Westlake.
Not only will the Lady Hawks have to knock off Valdosta—the No. 3 ranked team in the state—but they'll have to do it in South Georgia, as the match will be played three and a half hours away at McKey Park.
The winner of Tuesday's match will advance to the state quarterfinals.
Here's today's complete high school sports schedule:
Hillgrove at Pebblebrook—5:55 p.m.
McEachern at Campbell—5:55 p.m.
South Paulding at Lithia Springs—5:55 p.m.
