The Patrick County High School Cougar tennis team is the only spring sport team at the school that got in a competition last week due to the inclement weather. The Cougars traveled to Abingdon last Monday and lost 8-0 to the Abingdon Falcons.
“We really struggled to get anything going against Abingdon,” said Coach Andrew Terry. “We looked a little rusty, not having played a match in a few days, and it showed. I though we let several singles matches get away that we had a chance in,” he added.
“Octavion Busby played really well in singles and had a chance to win down the stretch, but couldn’t close it out in the end,” Terry said.
The Cougars have next week off before starting conference play May 16, at Virginia Tech. Their opponent is to be determined.
