The Warren County High School boys tennis team returned to its winning ways Tuesday in Sparta, while the girls team came close to winning its first match of the season.
The Warren County boys won convincingly 8-1, while the girls lost by a hair, 5-4.
“The girls are getting better and that’s all I can ask for,” said WCHS coach David Dunlap. “They were excited they did so well and came close to winning.”
In boys action, the Pioneers won every singles match and suffered their only defeat in No. 3 doubles. The Lady Pioneers were hurt by having to face White County No. 1 player Macey Tollison in singles and doubles.
“Tollison is a really good player so she’s probably going to win the majority of her matches,” said coach Dunlap.
Lady Pioneer Elena Rowland couldn’t finish her singles match against Tollison due to a shoulder injury but is expected to be OK.
In action Thursday against DeKalb County, the Lady Pioneers suffered another tough 5-4 loss, but the Pioneer boys beat DeKalb County, 7-2.
