KNOX CENTRAL — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcat tennis team opened their season with a 11-1 loss to Knox Central, but coach Terry Jones said he has seen a lot of improvement since his team’s first practice, which could lead to future wins for his program.
“It was our girls first match of the season,” he said. “It was great for our first-year girls to get out there and get some match experience. It showed us some things that we need to work on, but I also got to see a lot of improvement from our first day of practice.
“For our returning players, it was great to get back out on the court,” he added. “We are a very young team with only one senior and one junior. Our future is very bright for our program going forward with so many players in the elementary school. They are really enjoying the game and are very eager to learn.”

Well, here we are, Corbin vs. Clay County for the right to see who will represent the 13th Region next week at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

Like It or Not
I hate to steal an idea, but I guess in the end that's what everyone seems to be doing these days. After reading Les Dixon’s list of what he thought were the top five upsets in recent memory of the 13th Region Tournament, I decided to rank my top five basketball movies in today's column.
