Johnson County’s tennis team is making some noise of late. They knocked off Unicoi County last week 8-1 in both boys and girls matches.
The girls gave South fits on Thursday but fell 5-4 losing the last doubles match. The boys lost to the undefeated Rebels 7-2.
“We had a chance to win going into the last match and that’s all you can ask for as a coach,” said head coach Eric Crabtree. “South has a great team and we played right there with them. These kids are improving every day and it’s starting to show on the court. I thought they played excellent against Unicoi County. But I still don’t believe that we’ve played our best tennis yet.”
