Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez scheduled seven tournaments to get his team ready for the district tournament that takes place Wednesday and Thursday in Texarkana.
Several weeks ago, Coach Martinez had to make an adjustment when a member of his top boys doubles team, Jonah Kirkpatrick, suffered an injury. His doubles partner, Alex Benitez, has been focusing on singles matches during the past few tournaments and he has had some success according to Coach Martinez. Benitez is seeded #2 in the district tournament. Meanwhile Coach Martinez matched up Kirkpatrick with Jasmine Cruz in mixed doubles for the district tournament. Coach Martinez thinks that singles player Chase Crouch may well be a dark horse at the district tournament.
Coach Martinez says he is looking forward to watching some of his young players participate in the district tournament. He is hoping for success from the boys doubles team of Aaron Lucas and Michael McCord and from Logan Schumacher and Jordan Gonzales.
