Regional tennis seeds

The spring sports postseason kicks off Friday when the area’s girls tennis teams begin play in the 12th Region Tournament in Berea. The tournament runs through Sunday and will be followed by the boys tournament next weekend.

In the girls draw, defending singles champion CeCe Witten of Boyle County and doubles champions Lee Baxter and Lauren Yates of Mercer County are seeded No. 1 in their respective brackets, and Witten is going for her sixth straight singles title. Mercer, with five of last year’s six postseason players back, is favored to win its third consecutive team title.

On the boys side, two-time defending singles champion Kyle Jeffries of Casey County is again the No. 1 seed, and Casey appears to be well positioned to win a second straight team title. Ross Baeker and Blake Hobson, who won last year’s boys doubles title for Danville, did not return.

Camic and the 500 club

David Camic of Boyle County is already the winningest baseball coach ever at any Advocate-area school and has the second-highest win total among coaches who have spent their entire careers in the 12th Region. And today his Boyle team gives him his first chance for his 500th career victory.

Camic is 499-156-1 entering the Rebels’ home game today against Taylor County, where he could become the 33rd coach to reach the 500-win mark in Kentucky. As soon as he reaches that mark, whether today or this weekend or early next week, he will become the eighth active coach in the group, and his .760 winning percentage will rank in the top five among coaches in the 500 club.

Camic has spent the last 11 seasons at Boyle, where he has about 57 percent of his wins, and he spent nine years at Danville in the 1980s and ’90s. The only other 12th Region coaches who have won more games are Charlie Taylor of Somerset (who retired with 735 wins and is the only coach in the 500 club to spend his entire career in the 12th Region), Jody Hamilton of West Jessamine (who is active and had 705 wins through Wednesday) and G.J. Smith of Laurel County and South Laurel (696 wins).
