Weather permitting, the Wildcats’ co-ed tennis team will open their winter and spring season with a dual match at Sherman on Thursday at 3 p.m. As of Wednesday morning, Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez said the match was still on.
He said his team has had good practices, even around Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Coach Martinez said the Wildcats are ready to play. He called Sherman a good team and he added the Wildcats would have their hands full Thursday. Coach Martinez said the Wildcats would only get better by playing tough teams. He said he has lost a couple of players he had during the fall team tennis season.
Coach Martinez said Blaine Flemens has decided to concentrate on FFA activities. He added senior Alicia Lusinger has decided not to play due to recurring back problems. Coach Martinez said he still expects his team to be competitive. He said the team would be in seven or eight tournaments this season.
The district tournament will take place April 4-5 in Texarkana.
