We’ve had a great start to tennis season 2015. Mild temperatures and sunshine, unlike last year, have made our practices very enjoyable. Our first contest of the season was a close one with Gladewater, and we only lost by one match 10-11. But…we were able to wear shorts and play in 70 degree weather, so the loss wasn’t too painful.
January 30 we played our first tournament of the season in Hallsville. The competition was tough against 4A and 5A schools Hallsville, Lufkin, Sulphur Springs, Palestine, Liberty Eyleau, Greenville, Bullard, Mt. Pleasant and Pleasant Grove. We had a great beginning with our boys doubles team of Tanner Davis and Nick McFarland placing third and our girls doubles team of Niki Barham and Cayman Sutton winning consolation.
