The Coffee County CHS tennis team welcomed Lawrence County to the Raider Academy courts on Thursday. Smarting from a pair of losses on Tuesday in Shelbyville, Coffee County hoped to get back on the right track against the visiting Wildcats. The Lady Raiders won 5 to 2 while Red Raiders fell 5 to 2.
In the girls’ matches, Coffee County got all the victories they would need in singles play as they captured 4 of the 5 matches. Winning in singles play were: Jessica Barrera(8-3), Natalie Elzeer(8-2), Emily Shelton(8-4) and Wren Lawson(8-4). Barrera teamed up with Odalis Garcia to claim a doubles victory by a score of 8 to 3. The Lady Raiders are now 4 and 2 overall and 3 and 2 in district play.
In the boys’ matches, Coffee County got both of their wins in singles play. Grey Riddle(8 to 5) and Jonah Rollman(8-5) took home victories for the Red Raiders. The JV boys team of Ben Davis and Daniel McCullough got a 6 to 4 win in doubles play.
