Thursday, March 13, 2014 - by B.B. Branton

Ready for their home opener, the Hixson tennis teams host foe Rhea County Friday night at 6 p.m. on the indoor courts at the Hixson Racquet Club.

 

“I thought I would do something a little different with two of our matches, so we are playing Rhea and Signal Mountain (March 20) on consecutive Friday nights on the indoor courts and hope to draw good crowds,” said Hixson coach Raul Fernandez.

 

Fernandez has a solid core of returners on the boys and girls teams as both squads are favored to repeat as District 6 A-AA champs.

 

The boys are led by sophomore Alex Condra who was a District 6 A-AA runner-up last year as was the doubles team of Richard Voung (So.) and Kevin Nguyen, the only senior in the top eight.

 

The girls’ roster shows seniors in top three spots – Michelle Phillips, Haylee Gossett and Emily Davis -  along with senior Corynne Schannuth at No.6.
