The Lady Cougar Tennis Team Returns to Home Court

The Lady Cougar Tennis Team has been working hard this season to combat some fierce opponents, unfortunately sometimes the outcomes have not been in their favor. The past two weeks have been spent traveling to opposing schools but this week the Lady Cougars will finally be able to return to their home court and show off their hard work and dedication to the Colleton crowd. On Thursday September 19th, the Lady Cougars faced Berkeley High School, in a tough match that ultimately lead to a defeat for the Cougars 2-5. “The scores did not in any way reflect the way the girls played,” Coach Allyson Griffin said, “The played hard and gave 110%. I am so proud of them for hanging in and playing hard. No one gave up!” Senior Alicia Roberson did defeat her opponent during the match as she went into three sets during the match, winning the first and third. The following week on September 26th, the Lady Cougars traveled to Cane Bay High School where they redeemed themselves with a win 4-2. Lady Cougars Anni Crook, Cami Crook, Alicia Roberson, Madison Strickland and Daryn Hooker all defeated their opponents in both sets played ultimately bringing home the win for the Lady Cougars. On September, the 28th, the Lady Cougars traveled to Beaufort High School, where they played a double header and were defeated. In both matches, the Lady Cougars fought hard but were ultimately defeated by their opponents during each set. This week the Lady Cougars will finally play on their home court, where they will face teams they have already played during the season. They will face off against Hilton Head High School on Tuesday October 2nd at 4:30pm and Berkeley High School again on Thursday October 5th at 4:30pm with a hope at gaining a victory. Each home game is played at Colleton County High School tennis courts and the community is encouraged to come out and support your Lady Cougar Tennis Team.
