The resurgence of the Coffee County Central High School tennis team has been recognized by the Coffee County School Board as the board approved funds this week to refurbish a pair of abandoned tennis courts behind the Raider Academy. Coach Mike Ray was ecstatic with the announcement. “Me and my kids are very excited to have this renovation being done. I feel like it will be the first of hopefully three (future) stages (of improvements),” said Ray. Ray was effusive with his appreciation adding, “I appreciate the school board and Dr. McFall starting this project.” CCCHS principal Dr. Joey Vaughn shared the Coach Ray’s excitement. “We are very appreciative to the Coffee County Board for giving us an opportunity to refurbish the tennis courts as CCRA. Tennis is an important part of athletics at CCCHS and having a place to practice and have matches will be a tremendous bonus to our students,” said Vaughn in a statement to Thunder Radio.
