Cougars Win Fourth Straight State Tennis Title
05/14/19 -

Even though the Ada High boys tennis team had clinched the 2019 Class 4A State championship hours earlier with semifinal victories for all four entrants, there were no signs of many celebrations until the final Cougar match was over.

Then, moments after the Ada No. 1 Doubles team of Reese Siegle-Landon Swopes won the last tie-breaker point to edge the previously unbeaten team of Mason Allen and Braden Wadley of Grove in a tense championship match, AHS head coach Skip Griese could finally let his bottled-up emotions out.

“23... 23... 23,” he kept repeating to the large group of Ada tennis fans who remained inside the Oklahoma City Tennis Center Saturday night. The tournament was delayed four hours by rain, but the Pontotoc County proud didn’t seem to be bothered by the extended stay.

The Cougars had secured the Ada tennis program’s 23rd overall state championship. It was also a four-peat for the Ada boys and the eighth consecutive season that Ada has won a team title (boys or girls). Let that sink in. Ada has brought home a first-place trophy every year since 2012.

Griese and Swopes Make Winning Look Easy
05/18/18 -

Ada boys teams have 13 first-place trophies, while the Lady Cougars are wearing nine state crowns.

Coach Earl Bingamon began winning state titles, and Bill Nelson and Skip Griese have continued to build an Ada tennis empire.

Terry Swopes has been Griese’s right-hand man since becoming his assistant in the spring of 2006. Swopes is the husband of Sunny Nelson, one of Bill Nelson’s three daughters who played tennis during their prep careers.
