The Wildcats’ team tennis squad won their first match of the season, 11-8 against Terrell on the road Thursday. Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez calls it a team win. For the second time this week, a senior girl, who has been playing tennis for only a little more than a month, won her first match ever. Alicia Lusinger got a win at Terrell.
Wednesday Jasmine Cruz won her first match against a Tyler Lee player at the Wildcats Tennis Complex. Coach Martinez says three of his young guns also contributed greatly to the win. They are Aaron Lucas, Jordan Gonzales and Waylon Matlock. The three sophomores played on the JV team as freshmen last year. Coach Martinez says the three won all their singles and doubles matches Thursday. He says the win boasted the team’s morale.
The Wildcats were expecting to play at Forney earlier Thursday but that matched was canceled due to rain.
The Wildcats are now 1-3 for the season. They play Sherman next in a non-district match at the Wildcat Tennis Complex next Tuesday.
