The Manning Monarchs were victorious after coming back from being down 3-2 after the top five singles matches.
Singles winners included Marie Joyner, 6-4 (L), 6-2 (W) and 10-2 (W); Lorena Sanchez, 7-6 (L), 6-4 (W) and 10-3 (W). Doubles winners included Shanyia Gamble and Marie Joyner, 7-5 (W) and 6-4 (W); and Kailyn Vicente and Grayce Lemmon, 6-1 (W) and 6-1 (W).
The first round on the South Carolina High School League Playoffs will be held Oct. 18. Manning High is the No. 2 team and will host the No. 3 team from Region 8.
