Preview: Airport tennis

Airport’s young girls tennis team is looking to improve on last season’s 6-9 record, said first-year Eagles coach Laurens Hargett.

“Our girls are a hard working group with a lot of ambition,” said Hargett. “But we are a young, inexperienced team.”

The top returning players are sophomores Connilee Leaphart and Haley Anderson. Juniors Ashley Lewis and Karelyn Floyd and eighth-grader Shanieka Staley are in the running for single starting spots.
