West Lincoln sending athletes to college for tennis and cheer

Published 9:00 am Monday, May 16, 2022

The school library at West Lincoln has been busy lately with different seniors signing pledges and commitments to area colleges for next school year.

Two of those seniors who’ve recently signed are tennis player Katelyn Berryhill with Copiah-Lincoln CC and cheerleader Ainsley Griffin with Southwest Mississippi CC.

Berryhill made the MHSAA Class I Individual State Tournament in Oxford this year for WL tennis coach Idalia Sterling. She’ll join a Co-Lin program that’s led by Dana Hale, who recently finished her third season in charge of CLCC tennis.

The Co-Lin women’s tennis team finished 11-8 overall in 2022 and had a West Lincoln alum on its roster in sophomore Gracee Warren.

Griffin has been a captain and leader of the West Lincoln cheer squad for many years under the leadership of coach Dedra Edwards.

She was also a member of the West Lincoln girls’ soccer team while in high school and will cheer at Southwest for a squad coached by Cindy Henderson.
