    Cougar tennis team secures regional crown | Local Sports


    The Ada High School boys tennis team breezed to a Class 5A Regional championship Monday at the Ada Tennis Center.

    Ada won first place in three of the four divisions and was runner-up in the other.

    The Cougars finished with 34 total points, while Crossings Christian was second at 29. The Ardmore Tigers settled in at third place with a score of 23.

    In No. 1 Singles, Halston Redwine rolled past Alex Pavel of Ardmore 6-3, 6-0 in the championship match.

    It was almost the same for Ada’s Drew Lillard in No. 2 Singles as he bested Jake Wagoner of Crossings Christian 6-2, 6-0 in the title matchup.

    The Ada team of Brady Bacon and Boady Ross knocked off Zander Nelson and Jackson Strunk of Crossings Christian 6-4, 6-0 for first place in No. 2 Doubles.

    And in a match that could have gone either way, Gavin Clark and Parker Dillon of Crossings Christian turned back Ada’s Jackson Swopes and Tate Danielson by a 7-6, 6-2 count.

    The Cougars are off to the Class 5A State Tennis Tournament today and Saturday at the Oklahoma City Tennis Center. Ada will be searching for its 15th overall state title and first since the 2019 season.

    Crossings Christian won the Class 5A state championship last spring. There was no tennis in 2020 due to the pandemic and Ada was a heavy favorite to repeat as state champs.
