Tennis season kicked off for Elizabethton on Tuesday, with mixed results.
The Cyclone boys disposed of defending Class AA state champion Unicoi County 8-1, while the girls were defeated 7-2 at the Cyclone Tennis Complex in Three Rivers Conference action.
“Great job by the guys,” Elizabethton coach Ken Hardin said. “We had a couple of them that hadn’t ever played before. They came out there and they only lost one match, and it was a competitive match.
