Well, we have had some great tennis weather the last three weeks, some days a little cool and windy, but overall, we have been blessed with mostly warm, sunny days. During our first match of 2012, we found out that we definitely need some more work to accomplish the goals we have set for this season. Gladewater (3A) always has a strong tennis program, so playing them helps us to know what level of play we need to achieve to compete with the best 2A opponents. Our score was 3 – 15, but half of our losses were by only 2 or 3 games. So…it’s a starting point and we’re going to improve greatly from here on out.
