The Wildcats and Lady Wildcats celebrated Senior Day this past week as each team has captured multiple wins over the last few opponents. Each team will now be traveling to Hendersonville today to begin District play with the hopes to land a spot in the championship rounds. Below are some of the matches they have played in recent days. Congratulations and good luck to all the members of the Wilson Central Tennis Teams ……..
The girls improved to 10-1 with a 9-0 shutout of Nolensville. The boys lost a 5-4 heart breaker to the Knights. Guys are 6-5. A veteran girls team really handles situations pretty well. A very, very young boys team may make me lose my hair….or turn it gray….they are getting better though.
The Wildcats bested Station Camp 4-3. The win locks up second place in the district for the guys. Station Camp is really strong at the top of the lineup, but our guys proved to have too much depth for the Bison. The boys are now 10-5, 8-1 in district
The Lady Wildcats earned a 6-1 win over the Lady Bison. The girls also take second place with a win over White House in the district. The girls are 13-2 overall, 8-1 in district.
The Wilson Central tennis teams concluded District 9-Large play with a pair of 7-0 sweeps over White House. The win sews up 2nd place in the upcoming district tournament for the girls squad. The boys locked up 2nd a few days ago with a win over Station Camp. The team is playing well at the right time. Super proud of the squad. Girls are currently 14-2, guys are 11-5.
FATHER RYAN—Senior Day
The tennis team concluded its regular season schedule with our senior day festivities before playing Father Ryan. Seniors Savannah Westbrook, Sydney Miller, Abby Moser, Makayla Posey, Kaylee Wilson, and Michael Mercante took court for the final time here at Central. Both teams throttled Father Ryan. Girls won 9-0 and boys 8-1. Girls improve to 15-2 on the season and are second in the upcoming District 9-Large tournament. Boys move to 12-5 and are also second in District 9-Large.
The boys team returned only three players on roster that played last season. We have a boat load of kids and they overachieved. Coach Jent commented,”Two of our best girls left the team at the start of the year, but the girls decided to overcome instead of cry. I cannot be any more proud of this squad.”
