This was the third installment of Select Preps, which was launched by The News-Enterprise in 2012 to recognize the total package of student-athletes.

  • Regional Tennis Tournament has few surprises

    The opening round of the 5th Region Tennis Tournament on Friday at the Freeman Lake Tennis Complex didn’t produce any major upsets, but that doesn’t mean it lacked drama or intrigue.

    Seven matches were tied after two sets, going to a super tiebreaker instead of a third set, and all but two of those involved an area player.

    Central Hardin sophomores Hadley Handel and Chloe Sheeran dropped the first to the North Hardin duo of freshman Mary Kate Dennis and sixth-grader Addison Sutton, but managed to pull even by winning a second set tiebreaker.
