The White County High School Warrior tennis team picked up their second win of the season, on Tuesday afternoon, against Cumberland County. The Warriors won all three of the matchups that they played, on Tuesday. The Warriorettes struggled in their matchup against Cumberland County, on Tuesday, winning only three of their nine matches.

Eli McCormack also picked up an 8-4 win over Dillon Mitchell in the second spot. Zack Smith, Kurt Suggs, Jonas Fornehed, and Seth McCormack all picked up wins for the Warriors by default in the matchup since Cumberland County only had two tennis players in the boys’ match. In the doubles matchup, Fornehed and McCormack picked up an 8-3 win over Swallows and Mitchell to give the Warriors the win.
On the Warriorettes side, Macey Tollison and Evan Welch picked up wins in the singles matchups.
