Hopkins County Central
The Storm and Lady Storm fit two tennis matches in last week, facing both Webster and Caldwell County.
On Monday Central hosted Webster County, losing match 3-7.

On Saturday Central traveled to Princeton to face Caldwell County. The Storm netters fell 3-8, with Mackey taking her number one spot 6-1, 6-2 against the Lady Tigers one seed, Josie Shaffer. Collins, Koewn and Williams each lost their singles matches, while Killough won 8-4 and Adams won 8-2.
In boys action, Jagger Byrum and Travin Qualls each lost 8-0.
Madisonville-North Hopkins knocked off a shorthanded Christian County tennis team on Friday in yet another cold afternoon on the courts.
The Colonels came into the contest with just three boys on their roster, all first year players, leading Maroon head coach Bryan Fazenbaker to make some changes to accommodate the Colonels current squad.
“I played my 3 player at one, 6 at 2, and 7 at 3. I want to win don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want to embarrass anyone,” he said. “Karma is a funny thing. That could be us in a few years.”
There weren’t any Cinderella stories in the contest. The Colonels managed to win a combine 5 games in 4 matches. Eli Dunn, Adam Tagg and Jett Lutz all won their singles matches while Tagg and Lukas Ramey won the doubles contest.
