Senior spotlight: Wesson High tennis losing 5 senior netters

A talented group of Cobras is departing the Wesson tennis team via graduation as the squad had five seniors that made up a strong nucleus for coach Ashley Windom.

Like their other athletic cohorts at the school, the Cobras were in their first year as a member of the local 2A region for the first time after spending the previous six years as a 3A school. The onset of COVID-19 would shut down the season before division play began, though.

“This group is one of the hardest working groups I’ve seen come through the school,” said Windom. “They worked hard in the preseason to improve and were ready for a shot in the new district. I hate their senior season ended so quickly, but I have no doubt they will all go on to be very successful in whatever they choose to do.”

Wesson tennis will be under new leadership next year as Windom has accepted a teaching position at her alma mater, Franklin County.

Olivia Clark

The daughter of Charles and Nan Clark, Olivia will be attending Copiah-Lincoln Community College and major in criminal justice. A four-year member of the Wesson High tennis tea, Clark will be a member of the Colette dance team next year at Co-Lin.

The son of Matthew and Mollie Oster and Maleeda and Casey Martin, Bryce plans to attend Copiah-Lincoln Community College while studying automation and control technology. An athletic player who has only been a member of the Cobra tennis team for two years, Oster will play tennis for Co-Lin next year.
