  • Lady Cavs advance to District 6-AAA Final

    The Cookeville tennis teams hosted the district semifinals Wednesday at the Cavalier Courts.  The Lady Cavs blanked Soddy-Daisy, but the Cavaliers dropped a tough 4-3 decision to Red Bank.

     

    Kat Livingston put the Lady Cavs on the board with a quick 6-0, 6-2 win over Makayla Mercer at No. 2.  Maria Agbunag was next, defeating Ellie Bryden 6-3, 6-2.  Katie Ward overcame a rough first set to down Bailey Coyner 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 at No. 1. 

     

    “It’s no secret that Katie is the best player in the district.  Everyone plays their best match against her.  Even when she doesn’t have a great day, she finds a way to win.  That’s the sign of a great player,” Coach Brian Rohr said.

     

    After trailing 7-5, 5-2, Sarah Buchanan rallied to beat Summer Ghaffari 6-4 in the third set.  Sadie Mae Stroud completed the shutout with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Ceara Prichard at No. 5.

     

    “Sarah’s effort was impressive,” Coach Rohr said.  “Many players would’ve given up.  But she’s special.”

     

    The boys match was much more dramatic.  Red Bank jumped out to a 2-0 lead with wins at No. 3 and No. 2.  But Ben Silberman put Cookeville on the board with a 6-1, 7-6 (2) win over William Gunneson at No. 4.

     

    In perhaps the match of the day, Matthew Norman edged Sam Turner 7-6 (5), 2-6, 7-6 (7) to even the match at two.  Red Bank claimed the remaining singles match to lead 3-2 heading to doubles.

     

    In the No. 1 slot, Norman and Silberman took out Gunneson and Gunneson 8-5.  But Turner and Tran outlasted Stransky and Apple to give Red Bank the victory.

     

    The Lady Cavs are scheduled to host Rhea County in the District 6-AAA Finals on Thursday, weather permitting.

     

    The District 6-AAA Individual Tournament will be held May 2-4 at Tennessee Tech and Cookeville High School.
