Easy win for WCHS
Miya Rowland Anzoategui was dominant Thursday in a quick match with Van Buren County. The WCHS Lady Pioneers are now 3-1 this season in matches.

It could have been easy for the WCHS tennis teams to relax once Van Buren County got off the bus Thursday with just three players, but the Lady Pioneers and Pioneers were ready to take care of business at home. 

Warren County claimed easy wins in both the boys and girls matchup, with Mitchell Caten sweeping the lone boys set 8-0 and sisters Miya Rowland Anzoategui and Elena Rowland rolling in their lone singles sets.

Coach Matt Jackson knew the Eagles were going to be short-handed Thursday, so he had a number of his own players face off to stay active. Jackson had one thing he wanted to see from everybody Thursday, whether is was the players who took care of Van Buren County and those scrimmaging teammates.

"We are working on consistency," said Jackson, the longtime soccer coach who took over the tennis program this year. "We have a good team that can make some great serves and shots, but usually if we lose we realize that it wasn't so much that the other person won but rather we made errors."

Anzoategui and Rowland didn't have many errors while leading the girls to their third win. Anzoategui won 8-0 and Rowland bounced back from dropping the first game to win 8-1. It was a good showing from the young leaders of the Lady Pioneers and, hopefully, a sign of more wins to come.

Every match brings Warren County closer to the postseason, though there is still plenty of work to be done before May. Jackson is taking it one step at a time and gauging how to shape his lineup every match. 

"For individual district (tournament) matches, we can send two singles and one doubles. There's a lot of combinations we could choose - we'll be able to make a better choice as we get closer," said Jackson when asked about the district. "We have tough competition, so we'll see how the season goes."

Warren County returns to action Tuesday in Crossville.
