TIFTON — The ABAC men’s tennis team won the Region XVII championship Friday morning at the GCAA regionals held at the college. They defeated Georgia Perimeter, 6-3, in the finals and qualified for next month’s nationals. Joshua Page was named MVP and has only lost one match this spring. Additionally, Dale White, was named Men’s Coach of the Year. “It was a tough match,” said White. He said it was an especially sweet to win in his first year in charge of the program. “It was nice to get a state title with these guys.” GPC had been ranked No. 6 in the last national rankings; ABAC was No. 7. Georgia Perimeter had some measure of revenge in the afternoon, taking the women’s title.
