The Patrick County High School men’s tennis team lost two matches last week. The Cougars fell to Bassett 9-0 and lost to Halifax 9-0. Both matches were away since the PCHS tennis courts were being repaired last week.
“We really struggled with unforced errors in the Bassett match and made things tougher than they needed to be,” Coach Andrew Terry said. “I though we competed much better against Halifax and really struck the ball a lot better,” he added.
“It was good to see the guys improve so much from match to match and hopefully they will continue that trend throughout the season,” he said. “We had a great practice Thursday and are looking forward to the three matches we are slated for this week.”
