Cherokee only area school with tennis program

An unsung and under publicized group of high school athletes are those who play tennis.

Cherokee Washington is the only one of the area schools which has a tennis team. The Braves have both boys and girls teams - varsity and junior varsity, and they quite often play the same opponents, on the same day, but with the girls playing at one school's site and the boys on the other school's home court.

Cherokee's matches are with other Lakes Conference schools.
