After a slow start on courts 1 and 3, the Lady Cougars tennis team turned it around and swept Woodland in a scrimmage Tuesday. Consistency and smart shot selection led to solid wins on courts 2, 4, and 5, as well as the doubles court. The team is led by 4-year- veteran Junior Megan Mitchell. Although the team is fairly young, there are 10 returning players. Seniors Chandler Stone and Tori Sineath bring experience and leadership to the team. Eighth graders Daryn Hooker, Rachel Dandridge, Alicia Roberson, Anni Crook, and Cami Crook are looking to make contributions this year, as well as freshman Carlyle Griffin, Junior Taliyah Washington, and sophomore Deidra Haynes.

Thursday is match against Wade Hampton High School was also a sweep. CCHS was more experienced in match play and played more consistently. The Lady Cougars tennis team is coached by Allyson Griffin and Assistant Becky Hooker.
