Thompson to play tennis at Marietta


Clinton-Massie senior Anne Thompson also signed on to continue her tennis career at Marietta. She joins classmate Claire Carruthers as a senior who has decided to play tennis in college. CM coach Lynn Deatherage said, “Since girls tennis became a varsity sport in 1989, only three CM graduates have been invited to play college tennis before this pair. Clinton-Massie should be proud of their efforts and accomplishments to elevate the CM program. Keep in mind that seven players complete a varsity tennis roster, four of whom were seniors. To have half of the seniors, and a third of the team, continue at the college level is a pretty big deal for a school our size.” At Clinton-Massie, she was a four-year varsity singles specialist who holds the CM record for most varsity matches played in a career at 97, and is third on the career wins list with 48. She was recognized in the fall as a first team SBAAC all-Star and recognized by Greater Cincinnati Tennis Coaches’ Association as a Division II Distinguished singles player. Together with Hailey Clayborn, Anne was the first to represent CM at the OHSAA Southwest District tennis tournament.
