The Wildcats’ team tennis squad has picked up a forfeit 1-0 win over Mount Pleasant. The Wildcats complete district play with a 2-2 record and they will be the district’s #3 seed in bi-district playoffs coming up. The Wildcats season record is 5-9.
Mount Pleasant could only get a handful of players to play team tennis this year and ended up having to forfeit to the four district schools that have team tennis squads. Royse City does not compete in team tennis. Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez had hoped to take a few of his players to Mount Pleasant this week to get them some matches with Tigers’ players but the weather refused to cooperate.
The Wildcats lost district matches to Texas High and Lindale this season but defeated Greenville to go along with the Mount Pleasant forfeit. Coach Martinez said he expects to have some more solid playoff information after some very big matches coming up next Tuesday involving the top two teams in both District 15-5A and District 16-5A.
