Tennis alive at Chiefland High

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

Chiefland is not exactly a tennis hotspot.

The only public courts are in back of the high school and there are a couple of much neglected ones over by the high school softball field.

But Chiefland High does offer the sport to boys and girls, who are doing their best to kick up a racket this winter and spring.

The CHS girls tennis team is the more successful of the two, having won two of its five matches to date. That?s not bad considering most of the matches are on the road at private schools.

The girls varsity has senior Cindy Pollard at No. 1 singles, senior Rachel Keels at No. 2, senior Amanda Prevatt at No. 3, sophomore Jarobyn Rome at No. 4 and sophomore Sina Khaleel at No. 5.

Doubles matchups has Pollard and Prevatt at No. 1 and Keels and Rome at No. 2.

Coach Matt Flenner, who is also the fine band director at CHS, is happy to have enough girls to actually have a junior varsity, or B team.

That team includes junior Ashley Davis, sophomores Perla DeLeon and Cheri Jack, and freshmen Sealey Kilpatrick, Chelsea Twombley and Carrie Toler.
