CORBIN — The Corbin Redhound tennis team continues to play well after picking up wins over both Montgomery County and Clay County.
The Redhounds handed the Indians an 8-1 loss while blanking Clay County, 5-0.
“We went with our strongest lineup today against Montgomery County,” Corbin coach Nickie Dixon said. “They are a very tough team and are favored to win their regional tournament this year. In singles, I couldn't have asked for much more from any of our players. Connor (Maguet) played great today. His opponent will be the one seed from the 10th Region this year. Connor showed why he is one of our better players in our region. He served well and set up his points today. He was patient and waited to attack the net. He wore down his opponent and pulled away for the win in the last couple of games.
“I was very happy with William Reedy's performance today,” she added. “He also matched up with what would be the 3rd or 4th seed from the 10th Region. Early in the match his opponent had control of the net and was up 4-1, however William improved on his passing shots and forced his opponent to the baseline. After that William didn't lose a game. A come from behind win against a great player is always a great confident boost. The rest of the team put up great scores in singles action.”
Dixon was also pleased with the way her team played in doubles action. Corbin managed to take two of three from Montgomery County.
“In doubles, we suffered one loss,” she said. “However, we were competitive and played hard.”

LIKE IT OR NOT: A few tips for fantasy draft day
As high school, college and pro football season approaches, so too does Fantasy Football draft day.
The Tri-County Sports Authority’s Dirty Dawgs, a 16-under travel baseball team, placed second in the high school division of the Stars and Stripes July Bash, which was held in Knoxville, Tennessee last weekend.
When it comes to having success, no team in the Tri-County has had more during the past 10 years than the South Laurel Lady Cardinals soccer program.
Second Time Around
When all is said and done after the 2014 high school soccer season, a lot of teams will measure their success by wins and losses.
THE WAY IT IS: The times, they are a changing
The times, they are a changing — especially in the Tri-County high school sports scene.
The Tri-County Sports Authority youth football league, which usually fields in the neighborhood of 200 players, is about to get a little more crowded this season.
THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.
