WCMS tennis goes to court with Saint Andrews Sewanee
WCMS girls tennis team member Zoe Wilcher is shown practicing on one of the sunny days this spring. Wilcher competed well in the recent SAS meet in girls singles.

The Warren County Middle School tennis teams worked in their third meet of the year, after rain delays had become a definite hindrance, and the Pioneers made improvements on their performances. Although they lost the meet, 5-3, there were bright spots across the board.
The boys played 6 singles matches and 2 doubles matches. Overall Saint Andrews Sewanee won 5 matches and WCMS won 3.
“With so much rain, it’s been hard to get much match play in,” said coach Susan Barrett. “These middle school players have come a long way since we started practicing in February. Some of them had never played. I am very proud of their attitude and behavior on the court and they seem to be enjoying learning a new sport.”
Andy Dunn won his second match of the season against Sewanee’s Michael Vaughn, shutting down Vaughn 6-0. Pioneer Benjamin Campos defeated Cole Palmertree 6-4 and Warren County’s Cy Reish topped Mountain Lion Ethan Hargis 6-2 in boys singles.
Colin Reilly’s singles match went 11 games, with Mountain Lion Tanner King taking the last game to win 6-5.
WCMS had difficulty in the doubles matches, losing to SAS in both the girls and boys category.
Zoe Wilcher and Brayla Mayfield both competed in close matches in the girls singles category, both falling 6-4, but SAS walked away with the wins.
