Depth is important in any sport. Tennis is no exception.
Copiah-Lincoln captured first place in both the MACJC State and NJCAA Region 23 Women's Tennis Tournaments held at Northeast Tennis Center this weekend.
The three-day event wrapped up Sunday with Co-Lin's Lady Wolves having 33 points. Meridian was second with 25 followed by Itawamba with 18. Completing the 10-team field were Hinds and Pearl River with eight points each, Jones with six, East Central with four, and Holmes with one. Gulf Coast and Southwest did not win an event.
MCC took championships in No. 1 and No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles. Co-Lin claimed the other six events to capture the team championship.
Co-Lin's success was no surprise. The Lady Wolves were 17-0 in dual matches heading into the tournament.
Both Co-Lin and MCC will go to the NJCAA national tournament at College Station, Texas, on May 2.
Co-Lin entered Sunday's play with a 27-22 lead over MCC and outscored the Lady Eagles 6-3 in the championship matches. Co-Lin placed in all nine finals matches, while MCC was only in six.
In No. 1 singles, MCC's Charlotte Heidelberg defeated Co-Lin's Lindsey Phillips 6-4, 6-3.
