  • Cavaliers claim district title

    With a 4-0 win over Rhea County Monday, the Cookeville Cavalier tennis team clinched its fifth straight district championship.

     

    Alek Kriskovich and Marlon Ngo came out of the gates red-hot and gave Cookeville a quick 1-0 lead with an 8-0 blanking of Cole Calbaugh and Garrett Hall in the top doubles spot.  Garrett Barker and Tyler Bradshaw won a back and forth battle in the second match 8-6 over Kyle Shaver and Brandon Newell.

     

    “The win at No. 2 doubles was huge for us.  Garrett and Tyler gave the whole team a boost by taking some of the pressure out of the singles,” Coach Brian Rohr said.

     

    Ngo cruised to an 8-2 win over Calbaugh on the first singles court.  After falling behind 2-1, Bradshaw rattled off six straight games and defeated Hall 8-3 to give Cookeville the championship.

     

    “We knew this was going to be a tough match, beginning with doubles.  Rhea County is very talented, and Alex Groundland missed the match due to illness.  I’m extremely proud of the resiliency our team showed today,” Rohr said.

     

    The Lady Cavs have also clinched the district championship, their seventh in eight years.

     

    Cookeville returns to the court Tuesday, hosting Stone Memorial.
