Tennis finishes regular season strong
By Brett Bailey
CUMBERLAND- East Webster had an extreamly great season this year, as the Wolverine netters finished 7-1 on the year and won their district.
They then defeated Union 5-2 in the first round of the State playoffs. Sadly, the Wovlerines lost 6-1 to the four-time defending State champs, Madison St. Joe in the second round. Coach Pam Champion was proud of her team and their accomplishments.
“They played hard all year and fought hard against St. Joe,” Champion said. “That was the best we have every played them. We lost four courts to tiebreakers.”
Despite the fact that East Webster won’t be making it to State as a team, there are 12 Wolverine players that will be visiting Jackson for the individual state championships.
Hayden Hill placed first in girl’s singles, as did Rhett Parker in boy’s singles. Holly Ellis and Taylor Davis were first in girl’s doubles, with Jon Hayden Hancock and Meagan Dean taking second. John Taylor Champion and Samuel Butler took first in boy’s doubles, followed by Charlie Brand and John Carpenter.
Clair Ferguson and Jake Wofford placed first in mixed doubles.
