Siegel Girls Beat Soddy Daisy For Sectional Title


Recommended Posts

MURFREESBORO - Another excellent season ended a match short of their goal here Thursday  as the Soddy Daisy girls tennis team lost to Siegel, 4-2, in a state quarterfinals (sectionals) match at Old Fort Park Tennis Complex.


The Trojans (13-1) lost to the Stars for the second straight year in the sectionals and have a four year record of 56-13 under coach Lorri Johnson with two district and two regional titles.


Siegel (13-2) led 3-2 after singles and earned the team win and a ticket to the state tournament with a 9-8 (7-5) triumph at No.1 doubles.


In a doubles match as close as the score, Siegel's Marissa Kovach and Ragen White trailed 5-3 in 8-game pro set before rallying to edge Chloe Mitchell and Abigail Ellis win the match in the 7-point tiebreaker.


Chloe Mitchell (No.2) and Katelynn Coyner (No.4) had singles wins for the Troians, while Siegel winners were Marissa Kovach (No.1), Lexie Greene (No.3) and Haley Nance (No.5).


"This was a tough loss for us, but we will go back to work for another year with our goal to qualify for state," said coach Johnson who has one senior (Abigail Ellis) in her top six.


"I knew this was going to be a close match, especially at No.1 doubles," said Siegel coach Jeff Martin.


The Siegel girls have now won four straight sectional titles.

    • That’s my exact thoughts and I was just saying that it really shouldn’t be listed as a stat cause it doesn’t come from stats. I wasn’t trying to rant or discredit the guys he was mentioning in the stats I was just voicing that a Mr football finalist really doesn’t play into the quality of player he is or talent he has. It’s just 3 more days and we will see who’s gonna walk away carrying that gold ball 
    • Bradley's QB was a Rhea County Transfer and ran Wing T formations till coming to Bradley. He was recruited by Miami of Ohio as a DB. But he did show enough skill at QB that if he had been in an offense that was more geared to passing for the previous 3 years, what could he have done? I thought Bradley's athletes were a competitive match for Oakland, but I was always concerned about both line's lack of size, in dealing with Oakland (Bearden and Maryville too for that matter). And without the line play to match Oakland, the athletes were negated to a large extent. I am not trying to say that we should have won here (even if we had the lines to match), but he who controls the line of scrimmage tends to win the ball game, no matter what level, no matter the athletes that make the glitter plays.

    • That's because we didn't know what we lost until we lost it. Coach Story was a great coach no doubt and very well likes but he wasn't a Ted Wilson that would go out and get kids to come to Maryville. He was really more layed back and very quiet off the field.
