The varsity tennis team brought home a strong win in their 13-6A District Championship game against Round Rock high school on Oct. 6th. Completely defeating the Dragons 11-0, the Warriors had their eighth consecutive win in district games. Both coaches and players had high expectations for this tournament.
“We won 6-0, 6-4, and played pretty well,” Fernanda Vasquez ‘20 said. “We started training two weeks before school started so we were in shape for this game.”
The team started off in doubles winning every match, and putting the scores ahead from the beginning. Later, Coach Travis Dalrymple called players out to play singles, who were also able to win every round, not giving the Dragons players any chance to catch up in scores.
“My partner had big serves and was really dependable, so we won by quite a lot,” Michelle Duan ‘19 said. “I think we played as expected and had a lot of fun.”
The team effort was strong, with great teamwork between partners in the doubles’ matches. The great bond between the students helped in winning the game and many parents came to support their kids. The tournament ended with the Dragon’s defeat and a celebration with the Warriors. Each player was awarded a medal for their hard work, and Coach Dalrymple noted the pairs that played well that day as well as more the team could work on.
“Avery and I usually train 10 hours a week. From drills to practice matches, we’re always putting in 110% like everyone else,” Leonard Wang ‘18 said. “At districts, we played very well and we’re excited to see how far the team will go in the future.”
The Warriors will go on to play in the Bi-District Championship game on Oct. 16th.
