“Our team came out to play and wasn’t intimidated by Dobbins Bennett.” JCHS Tennis Coach, Zack Pittman

By Beth Cox

The JCHS tennis team hosted Dobbins Bennett, last week for a non-conference match.
Dobbins Bennett has no shortage of talented players and is known for its
excellent tennis team, which was evident during the
recent event against the Longhorns.
However, the JCHS tennis team did not disappoint the small crowd of fans that lined the court supporting their young, talented athletes.
Dobbins Bennett was the overall winner, but Coach Pittman was happy with what he saw his team accomplish.
“Our team came out to play and wasn’t intimidated by Dobbins Bennett,” Pittman said. “They played well, especially having only played two other tennis matches this season as compared to DB’s 13 matches.”
The JCHS girls have one conference win against Happy Valley. HV does not have a boy’s tennis team, so JC has not had a conference match yet.
Both JCHS and HV teams were scheduled to travel to Sullivan North for a conference match.
