    2015-Varsity Advances to Regional!

    Well, we have been playing since 1:30 and finally got off the courts at 7:30pm- we played at the Baylor indoor facility, lost power/ regained power/ lost courts due to Baylor women’s and men’s tennis practice!! But the best thing of all is that WE WON AND WILL BE ADVANCING TO REGIONALS!!!!

     

    So proud of this team, and the hard work they have displayed to reach their goals!!

     

    2015-District Champs!

    Drum roll, drum roll!! Today your Varsity Tennis Team took control of the courts!! We did just what Dr. Gober asked us to do this season- he asked for District Champions and today we became the District Champs and will advance to the Area playoffs in Waco. The team took a hard loss last week to Tyler Lee 9-10 which put us going into the District tour as the 2nd seed. So Monday, we defeated North Garland 10-0, today in the Semi-Finals we beat Sacshe 10-0, and in the Finals we had an amazing battle against Tyler Lee and defended our home courts with a victory 11-8.


    These kids have had a great season and hope to continue working hard towards Regional!!


    Thanks for all your support so far!
