Lady Wildcats fall on the road to North Laurel

CORBIN —  

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — Bob Smith’s North Laurel Lady Jaguar tennis team managed to pull out a 9-2 win over Terry Jones’ Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats and both coaches left seeing improvements out of their respective teams.

“This was a productive day for our girls coming back from spring break,” Smith said. “We were able to get all the girls some playing time. Lynn Camp is a very young team and most of their girls just started playing a few weeks ago. I was impressed with their excitement and enthusiasm, and they showed a lot of promise for the future.  

“They represented themselves very well,” he added. “As for our girls, I thought Pooja (Kanthawar) and Caroline (Moore) as well as Kendra (Smallwood) and Brynna (Ryle) played some really good doubles today. We stayed aggressive and put ourselves in good position for finishing volleys.”

Jones admitted seeing lots of improvement from his squad’s first match against Knox Central from a week ago.

“This was our second match of the season and I definitely saw a lot of growth,” he said. “With a very young team, we are making strides every day in practice and every match provides us with great experience. Since our first match last week against Knox Central, we have been really focusing on our serving and ball placement.  

“I saw a lot of progress tonight in all areas of our game,” Jones added. “I am so proud of two of our younger players, which have only been playing tennis for less than a month. Sixth grader Brady Coe won her singles match 8-6 and showed a tremendous amount of poise and determination. Eighth grader Kristen Kersey continues to impress me. She is getting better each and every day. She won her singles match 8-6 as well. Both of these players are continuing to work hard and have very bright futures.”
