Hounds, Lady Hounds ready for sectional play

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

The Corbin Redhounds and Lady Redhound tennis teams will travel to Ashland Sunday with a trip to the state tournament on the line. Both teams will be competing for a Sectional title, but to accomplish the feat they must get past their respective opponents first.

The Redhounds will face off against Rose Hill, according to coach Nickie Dixon while Donnie Head’s Lady Redhounds will play Russell.

Both coaches are confident of their team’s chances.

“Our boys are ready for sectionals,” Dixon said. “We practiced the day after we won region. We wanted to be ready for this year's sectionals.  I believe we will play Rose Hill out of the 16th Region first. I do not know much about them since we do not play against them in our season. However, we have been practicing with the mentality that it doesn't matter who our opponent is, if we go in and play how we have been practicing we can take care of business.  

“Last year was my first experience with sectionals and it’s a little different than our regional tournament,” she added. “Our boys are prepared to play singles or doubles depending on what line-up we go with. That is something we did not do last year. I am proud of my boys this season, but we still have two more weeks to go and the boys haven't stopped yet. They want to return to state in the team competition like they did two years ago. That is our goal for Sunday's sectional.”

Head admitted he didn’t know much about Russell, but remains confident about his team.

“The only thing I know about them is they’ve got a good doubles team,” he admitted. “But you really don’t know if they’re going to use them for doubles or singles. I like our chances and hopefully, we are deeper than them.

“Last year, Rose Hill was just stronger than us, but I believe we have a good chance,” he added. “Hopefully, we can go down there and do well. I do believe whoever wins this will beat the winner of the 14th Region and 15th Region winner and advance to the state tournament.”
