Cheyenne Mountain doubles team is Co-Athlete of the Week

This week, we honor a pair of tennis teammates from Cheyenne Mountain High School, as Francis Adams and Caroline Kingo are this week's Loaf ‘n Jug Aquafina Co-Athletes of the Week.

Adams and Kingo are the Indians' number-one doubles team and they just won a state title at last Friday's 4A tennis championships in Pueblo.

Kingo is a foreign exchange student from Denmark and she actually lived with Adams for awhile, so these two athletes of the week are not only teammates, they're also like sisters.

"it's a really special senior year and to do it with my sister," said Adams. "It means a lot. Of course the team title means a lot, but this is just the icing on the top right now."

"I played more singles in Denmark," said Kingo. "So playing doubles with my sister, it's so awesome."

Cheyenne Mountain also won the team state title, which is the 17th in school history. That's part of the reason why the Indians girls tennis program has made the 2012 class of the Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame.
