Fall Tennis 2008
Oct.6 the Varsity Tennis team lost to Barbers Hill 18-1. The lone winner was So. Anthony Nelson who won his match in 3 sets, playing number 5 singles. The team stands at 2-1 in district play and 2-2 overall. The next match is Oct.9 at Goose Creek Memorial. The upside is that the kids are getting valuable varsity experience. The team is improving each match and playing hard. With 12 of 14 varsity players being Freshman and Soph.'s we are young, but should be really tough the next couple of seasons.
Oct. 20 The Varsity Tennis team was defeated by Kingwood Park 19-0. The #1 BoysDoubles team of Jon Hardy/ Justin Cross played well, leading almost the entire second set before falling in a tiebreaker, and dropping the match 6-1, 7-6. In Girls #2 Doubles, the team of Alicia Melendez/Sarah Odell played really well also falling 6-3, 6-2. That match was closer than the score indicates, as Sarah and Alicia lost several deuce games.
The Tennis team finshed the fall season 2-4 in district play. 12 of 14 Varsity members were Freshman and Sophomores and they played hard and really improved their game. This fall left a good foundation to build on. The Tennis team will be competing this spring in the individual tennis season. The team would like to thank everyone that supported Tennis this fall.
