Poteau netter figured he might as well represent Pirates on tennis court

Since Poteau High School sophomore Skylar Abbott has been on the tennis court for several years, it only seemed natural that he try to do so as an Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association athlete.For the last two years, Abbott has been fortunate enough to represent the Pirates on the tennis court.“I’ve been playing since I was about 9,” Abbott said. “I figured I should be able to play for my school, and give my school a little more credit in another sport than it already has.”Last weekend, Abbott went 1-2 at the Class 4A State Tournament, which was a better showing the year before as a freshman.
