Dyersburg trip
not good for OC

Obion Central’s tennis teams might have been better off staying on Spring Break an extra day.
Returning to the courts for the first time in 13 days, the Rebels suffered a pair of 7-0 losses to host Dyersburg on Monday afternoon.
Central will have a quick turnaround, hosting Westview at 3:30 today at the Obion County Fairgrounds courts in Union City.
OC suffered an 8-5 setback as Shelly Pate lost to Madison Vaughn and Austin Riley fell to Josh Williams.

Lady Vols’ Warlick
earns rookie award

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tennessee’s Holly Warlick is the winner of the Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year award after leading the Lady Vols to a regional final this season.
Warlick coached Tenne-ssee to a 27-8 record and a Southeastern Conference regular-season title this season after spending 27 seasons as an assistant on Pat Summitt’s staff.
Summitt, who led Tennessee to eight national titles, stepped down last April after announcing in 2011 she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type.
