CHS Tennis Teams Win 2017 Region Championships
The Coffee High School boys and girls’ tennis teams continue to make history, as both teams wrapped up the Region 1-AAAAAA Championships earlier this week with easy wins over Houston County. The region title was the first in school history for the girls and just the second for the boys. Both teams finished the 2017 region schedule undefeated.
The Lady Trojans clinched their first-ever region championship with their win over Houston County, winning 5-0. Sophia Winters won 6-0, 6-0, Anna Grace Scholten won 6-0, 6-1, and Kaden Walker won her singles match 6-1, 6-3.
The Lady Trojan doubles duo of Heidi Spikes and Ansley Ellis won 6-0, 6-0, and the tandem of Caris Ruis and Sarah McCullar 6-0, 6-1.
The Lady Trojans are now 17-0 this season.
The Trojans also won 5-0 in a sweep, getting singles wins from Jason Tanner (6-2, 6-3), Kolton Fussell (6-1, 6-1), and Blake Hicks (6-1, 6-3).
In doubles action, Hank Carmical and Chance Sweat were 7-5, 6-1 winners, and the tandem of Daniel Register and Kaleb Smith won their match 7-5, 6-1.
The Trojans are now 15-2 overall this season.
“This was a special day for several reasons,” said Coffee head tennis coach Whit Moorman. “This is the first region championship for the girls and they did it in dominant fashion. On the year the girls won 481 games and gave up 22 over 10 matches. The boys won their second region championship and did it with a bounce back win, and they did it all on Senior Day. It’s even more special because all of the seniors got victories. I’m proud of all of their efforts. We have to keep the momentum rolling into the playoffs.”
