The Wildcats Tennis Team played in a tough Bob Faulkner Tennis Tournament in Tyler Friday. It’s all a part of the team’s preparation for the District Tournament April 5 in Texarkana. Wildcats Coach Tony Martinez was very pleased with the play of the mixed doubles team of Tyler Stout and Jaspyn Johnson in Tyler Friday. They finished in fourth place in a 16 team field. Coach Martinez said he also decided to pair up two of his top singles players into a doubles team. Unfortunately the team of Jesse Allen and Drew Sant ended up playing a doubles team that earlier had defeated a state champion team last year from Spring Hill. Coach Martinez said several other Wildcats got into the second or third round of the tournament before losing.
In other tennis news, Coach Martinez was pleased with the community tournament he offered up last Saturday at the new tennis complex. He promised another similar tournament for the public on April 16. It’s a benefit tournament for CanHELP. Coach Martinez said a JV tournament at the Wildcats Tennis Complex Tuesday went very well. Seven teams attended and there were 112 participants. The Tennis Complex will also be the site for a varsity tournament on Friday.
