LCHS Tennis sweep district team tournament

Lincoln County’s Sam Robinson returns a forehand in the Falcons district championship match last week with Tullahoma. Robinson went on to win the match 8-1.


Both the girls and boys tennis team swept the District 8-AAA Team Tournament.

On Tuesday the ladies won over Coffee Co. 4-1. The Falcons defeated Tullahoma 4-2. The Lady Falcons finished with a 15-0 overall record. The boys improved their numbers to 14-1.

“Most matches your top players get all the attention but tournament time every match is just as important,” Coach Jonathan Brown said. “Both matches were clinched by the number 5 seeded players. Calee got down 2-7 and fought back to win 9-7 and clinched the district championship. In the boys it was the 5 seed Lake Porter who clinched the championship. Lake got behind 2-5 and battled back to win in a tiebreaker 11-9.”

The win sent both teams to the Region 4-AAA finals played at Adam’s Tennis Complex at Old Fort Park in Murfreesboro. Both the ladies and boys teams were defeated by Central Magnet 1-4.
