Wildcat doubles team makes school history, qualifies for state tournament 

A pair of Wildcats made school history on the tennis courts on Monday as Luke Reagan and Ryan Tenison became the first Tullahoma High School boys tennis players to qualify for the TSSAA State Tournament.  

Reagan and Tenison are the first THS players in 23 years to compete in the doubles competition at the state tournament. Kristin Luna and Diana Bratcher were the first Tullahoma tennis players to qualify for state when they took part in doubles in 2001.  

“Luke and Ryan make a great doubles team and communicate well on the court,” said THS Tennis Coach Ashley Abraham. “As individuals, they are incredible players, but together, they are really hard to beat. Luke played on the Tullahoma Middle School team, and it has been amazing to watch his growth as a player and person. Ryan got a late start to the game, but once he started, he really picked up the game, and it has been fun watching him. Both of them are out on the courts to constantly improve and get better. I cannot wait to see how they do at state in Murfreesboro.”  

Reagan and Tenison needed to notch a pair of victories over Cookeville teams in the Region Tournament in Fayetteville on Monday to qualify for state.  

The Wildcats opened play with a win over Jack McReynolds and Daul Baek. Reagan and Tenison won their first game, 6-2, but lost the second 6-4, setting up a winner-take-all final set. Tullahoma dominated the final game and notched a 6-1 victory to earn their seat in the region title match.  

Reagan and Tenison fell behind early in that championship match, losing the first set 7-5 to Joseph Rohman and Coleman Brown. However, the THS duo battled and picked up a 7-5 win in the second set before sealing the match with a 6-2 victory.  

Prior to the individual and doubles competition, the Wildcats concluded their team season on Friday. After winning the district tournament, the Tullahoma boys team finished second in the region tournament at home last week.  

“It has been an outstanding season for our tennis players. I am thrilled that Luke and Ryan are making history as they get to compete in the TSSAA State Tournament,” said TCS Director of Schools, Dr. Catherine Stephens. “As Coach Abraham mentioned, the opportunity to compete at state is a direct result of how hard each player works on the court to get better. Congratulations to these players, their coaches, and their families, and I cannot wait to see how they do at state.”  

Reagan and Tenison are scheduled to open the TSSAA State Tournament on Thursday, May 23. Match times are slated to begin at noon. Click here to find out more information about the TSSAA State Tournament.
