Heat, Dehydration Play Roles in Team Tennis Loss to Sherman

The Wildcats’ team tennis squad lost a non-district match at home, 19-0 to Sherman at the Wildcat Tennis Complex Tuesday afternoon. Wildcats Team Tennis Coach Tony Martinez said the players also had to battle the very hot and humid August weather. After the match, the Wildcats top boys player, Alex Benitez, was taken to CHRISTUS Mother Francis Hospital Sulphur Springs to receive treatment for heat related problems. He was released several hours later. Coach Martinez said a Wildcat boy and girl player were ahead in their matches but began to cramp up and could not finish. He said he would be reemphasizing the importance of proper hydration to the team.

Despite the score, Coach Martinez said his team was competitive in most matches with several ending either 8-5 or 8-6 and others going to tiebreakers. He said he was impressed with the play of girls #1 player Heather Harris. Coach Martinez said she seems to get better every time she plays. He said all the Wildcats are showing improvement from where they were at the beginning of practice.

The Wildcats are now 1-4 for the season. They will have one more match before district play begins on September 5 at the Wildcat Tennis Complex against Hallsville. Next Tuesday the Wildcats travel to Princeton for a 3:30 p.m. match. Coach Martinez expects to have a full team of boys and girls players for the first time this season for that match.
