Cass tennis routs Paulding County

Cass tennis player Avery Cornett warms up before a match against Paulding County Thursday. Cornett, playing at No. 1 singles, won his match 6-0, 6-0 and the Colonels won handily, sweeping Paulding 5-0.

It was a good day for the Cass High tennis teams as they both cruised past Paulding County Thursday night.

The boys, playing at home, swept all five lines, dropping just four games in the process.

Avery Cornett, Dalton Jackson, Seth Colston and the doubles team of Noah Arnold and Max McCauley each won 6-0, 6-0.

The lone blemish was at No. 1 doubles, where Reagan Barrere and Cade Foster won 6-2, 6-2.

“[It was a] good team win today to keep our hold on the No. 2 seed in the region coming into the final couple weeks of the season, and we are really hoping to finish strong,” Cass coach Kevin Cunningham said.

The girls had just a slightly tougher time of it, winning 4-1. R

yleigh Lanham and Morgan Hughes at Nos. 1 and 2 singles matched their male counterparts with 6-0, 6-0 wins.

Isabella Prater at No. 3 singles won 6-0, 6-3 and Emma Wickenheiser and Kara Bowen at No. 1 doubles won 6-0, 6-1.

Paulding County made sure to escape with something at No. 2 doubles, beating Hallie Gore and Grace Njoroge 7-6, 3-6, 6-3.

“It was good to get a region win and have some people step up and really play well,” Cunningham said. “Isabella Prater is a freshman and she is really starting to get used to the speed of high school tennis. ... We are really happy to get this win and just hope we can maintain this positive momentum heading into next week against Hiram.”
