Lady Redhounds secure 13th Region title

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

Just like most years, 13th Region tennis fans have spent their time with one eye on tennis action and the other on the skies as they try to outrun the soggy conditions.

As quarterfinal action got underway a little later than expected Monday, officials were at the ready should they have to get players off the court in a hurry or get the courts dry in order to play.

Corbin Lady Redhounds’ coach Donnie Head said that despite the weather and depending on the conditions, he expected play to be wrapped up today.

“We are a little behind, but if everything goes smooth from this point, we should be able to finish up today (Tuesday),” he said. “With the tournament being held this time of year, this is just something we’ve come to expect and we just have to deal with.

“Luckily for us, we’re at home and we have the manpower and equipment to get things dried out quickly should we have to stop on account of a shower or two,” he added. “It also helps our kids being here and not having to worry about traveling or getting on and off the bus.”

The good news for Head and company is that with 12 points in the books heading into the semifinal round, the Corbin Lady Redhounds have locked up their fifth straight region title.

“Both of our singles and doubles won their first round matches, so we were leading in the points,” Head said. “Clay County, Middlesboro and South are the teams we were primarily worried about coming in, but they lost some players in the early rounds, so it really helped us.

“We were looking at needing 11 points to tie and most likely 12 to win and we had eight points already,” he added. “Our girls won in both singles and doubles today, which gives us 12 points heading into the semifinals.”

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
