What a District Tennis meet this was! It was the most competitive and closest District meet in my 20 years of coaching tennis. Unfortunately, we were the team that ended up in fourth place(top three teams move on) and lost two semifinals matches that would have put three people to State Tennis. I though we played hard but just didn't make enough shots to win the big points that you need to do to win the match.
Overall, we had a great season and want to thank the five Seniors that will be graduating-Isaac Stitz, Alec Plagman, Josh Cheek, Caleb Rasmussen, and Joey Fields. They have all been a huge part of our success this year, and with the exception of Caleb who joined tennis this year, the last three to four years. All five of them will be missed greatly!
