Bainbridge entered the playoffs as Region 1-4A champions after a dominant regular season. The team didn’t drop a game against region opponents.

The team loses two seniors to graduation, Thomas Shockley and Pate Beckham. The rest of the team is relatively young, and No. 1 singles player Cullen Glover will be in his senior season next year.
