The Stratford boys tennis team enters the postseason on a high note.
The Knights (8-6, 4-4 Region 7-AAAA) blanked Goose Creek 7-0 in a region match on Thursday.
They are slated to travel to Beaufort for the opening round of the Class AAAA playoffs on Tuesday.
Against Goose Creek, the Knights dropped just a total of 18 games.
Dylan Sides (2,1), Griffin Wong (0,1), Jeffrey Wong (0,2), Garett Sides (4,1) and Parker Hoffman (2,1) all won singles matches for Stratford.
Sides and Griffin Wong won at No. 1 doubles (1,0), while Jordan Smith and Anthony Yeung won (2,1) at No. 2 doubles.
The win gave Stratford a season sweep of Goose Creek. The Knights also won 7-0 in April.
Stratford has no seniors so the entire squad can return next spring.
