The Tennis team breaks out before a game.

With head coach Carlos Blanco and an added year of experience for junior varsity coach Jonathan Berg, the tennis teams had another strong season where they aced their way to playoffs.

After many close matches, the team scored wins against Ryan High with a score of 17-2, Braswell High with a score of 16-3, and Denison High with a score of 13-6.

The varsity team lost four games this season to Wichita Falls 15-4, Rider 13-6, Sherman 10-9, and Aledo 18-1.

“Even though we could have done better at playoffs, I’m really happy with the work everyone in our team put into this season,” senior Eva Perez said.

Junior varsity boys and the JV girls clutched the district championship for the second straight year. The varsity team placed fourth overall at district.

“We played well the entire season, Blanco said. “It wasn’t until we faced Aledo that we fell short and didn’t make it further into playoffs.”
