Tennis Teams Net Wins Over Southeast Whitfield
By EDDY GIFFORD
The Dade County High School tennis teams suffered an early season loss to Armuchee to start the season but bounced back last week with a big win over Southeast Whitfield. The weather has played havoc with the season so far but things are looking up for the Wolverines.
Dade boys and girls tennis teams took on 4-A Southeast Whitfield on Monday, March 4, and both teams had a good showing and brought home the win.
The online post by coach Jennifer Wood gave the details of the win.
The Lady Wolverines improved their record to 1-1. After a close match, our number two singles, Jordan Biddle, pulled through and came out with a win. Our number three singles, Alexus Atterton, and number one doubles partners, KK Castleberry and Brooklyn Konrad, took an early lead and ran away with the win against their opponents. Bella Varrichio and Lexi Wallin, our number two doubles team, went back and forth but pulled the win out in the end. First time tennis team players, Kayci Moore and Lydia English, defeated their opponents during an exhibition match 8-5. Alleigh Daniels, number one singles, had great rallies but fell a little short.
The Wolverines returned to Southeast Whitfield looking for revenge after a tough loss last season. Number three singles, Lance Moore, started the team out on the winning path with a score of 8-4. The number one doubles team of Robert Reed and Aidan Cox followed suit and ran away with their match 8-2.
Next were the newcomers to the team this year, number two doubles, Aiden Ross and Connor Wilburn. Both players worked hard to get an 8-1 victory. Number one and number two singles, Ethan Hunt and Jonathan Dupree, both improved on their score from last year but was unable to capitalize.
The Wolverine tennis teams are scheduled to be back in action this week when they traveled to Pepperell on March 14 and then host Lookout Valley on Wednesday, March 15. On Thursday, March 16 DCHS will host Chattooga. Home matches begin at 4 p.m.
