The Starkville Yellowjackets will open the tennis season todayÂ in high class fashion.
â€śWe actually got permission to play at the (A.J.) Pitts (Centre) for the first time since I have been coach,â€ťÂ SHS tennisÂ coach Rob Fyke said. â€śThe kids are excited about it. They feel like they are playing at Yankee Stadium on both sides. Unfortunately the weather is going to be a bit cool, but that might bump up their memory when they look back. We are still going to roll with it even though itâ€™s supposed to be between 30-40 degrees with the wind blowing 20 miles per hour. We are going to give it our best effort.â€ť
Not only will the facilities be top of the line, but Starkvilleâ€™s opponent is a strong one. For their first match, the Jackets will face the Cougars of Newton County.
