The tennis team had one of its most successful years in awhile. They improved their size as a team consisting of mostly freshmen and sophomores. Even though they are a young team they have improved tremendously winning seven out of thirteen matches. They played well and got better as the season went on, including during conference play and other matches.
Freshman Ethan Neal, who plays No. 3 singles said, “In sectionals we are preparing for the best, but we are just going to go and play our game no matter who we come up against.”
During the draft Clarksville pulled Our Lady of Providence High School. Junior Jake Cummings, who plays No. 1 doubles said,“ I think if we play our game we have a good chance of beating Providence then we will go from there.”
Sophomore Terry Morgan, who plays No. 2 doubles said “ Tennis is going good this year. If we work hard and put in the effort and hit out, we could do good in sectionals.Our coach always says is ‘Winning teams find a way to win, and losing teams find a way to lose’. “
