The calendar may say its spring, however the recent weather has argued otherwise. Tennis is a sport that relies on warm weather for its participants. However, Knoxville Girls Tennis Coach Nick DeMoss says the early matches in the season do not present the warmest weather. He says in early season practices, the girls noticed how cold it was outside. DeMoss reminded them that their opponents are dealing with the same thing, and it is who toughs it out better will win the match. The Panthers have another week of practice before their first meet. Knoxville gets its season underway one week from today against Chariton.
