Lady Trojan tennis off to fast start

The Carrollton High School girls' tennis team is swinging a hot racket early in the spring campaign.

The Lady Trojans improved to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in Region 7-AAAAA play on Tuesday courtesy of a 5-0 sweep of Hiram, where all five lines won in straight sets.

On the singles line, No. 1 Sonya Ivaschenko (6-0, 6-3), No. 2 Alli Hodges (6-1, 6-0) and No. 3 Audrey Best (6-0, 6-0) eased to wins, as did the pairings of No. 1 Katy Nixon/Caitlann Arant (6-1, 6-0) and No. 2 Kate Harvey/Christen Arant (6-1, 6-1). 

Second-year Carrollton head coach Amanda Folds is looking to build off last year's run to the Class AAAAA state semifinals.

The Lady Trojans face Woodland, Cartersville and Rome next week before competing in the DecoTurf High School Team Championships in Chattanooga on March 16-17.
