AnnaClaire Lackney, the Lady Warriors Tennis team's #2 singles player, is our Check Your Game Athlete of the Week. AnnaClaire went 4-0 with wins over Oak Hills, Taylor, Kings and Anderson.
As a sophomore she had a record of 4-7 at 3rd singles, last year she was 12-7, and so far this year she is 9-2. AnnaClaire has made a real commitment to getting better this year and making her senior year a successful one. "She has improved in all areas of her game, especially in the way she has learned how to compete and grind out tough matches," said Head Coach Doug Spreen. "Along with our number one Grace Haffner they have given the team a very good one-two punch at top of our line-up."
A couple of times this year already AnnaClaire has been involved in very close matches. It has been her attitude, effort and strong mental approach that has won her those matches. Coach Spreen went on to say, "I could not be more proud of the effort she has given in each match this year. AnnaClaire has done a very good job as co-captain of the team, providing a leadership that seems very natural to her."
