LYNN CAMP — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcat tennis team might be young, but they are getting better as the season progresses.
Case in point — the Lady Wildcats’ 11-1 win over Pineville.
“Our girls are beginning to show the benefits of all the hard work they are putting in,” Lynn Camp coach Terry Jones said. “Tonight we won 11-1 and all of our girls got a win whether it be a singles or doubles match. Pineville is very similar to us in that we are both very young teams.
