Valentine’s Day last Friday, at a Tyler Lee tennis tournament in Tyler, began with temperatures near the freezing mark but then warmed up and turned into a beautiful day according to Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez. He said two of his doubles teams and a girls’ singles player had good days against a tough field. The Wildcats boys doubles team of Aaron Lucas and Logan Schumacher lost their first match of the day in the cold weather to Whitehouse but then warmed up like the weather to win a consolation final match. Coach Martinez said his duo won the finals match, 8-4 or 8-5. Wildcats girls’ singles player Harleigh Stegient won a finals match in B Division consolation. The Wildcats mixed doubles team of Jonah Kirkpatrick and Jeauxleigh Cantu got a big win over Longview before falling to a very strong highly ranked Tyler Lee team later on. Still Cantu and Kirkpatrick rallied to take a third place match against a good Center team, 9-8 in a tiebreaker. Coach Martinez was thrilled with the success considering the tournament featured 25 strong teams including Tyler Lee, All Saints, Longview, Hallsville, Jacksonville, Whitehouse Van, Wills Point, Rockwall and Rockwall Heath. Coach Martinez said the Wildcats have had a hard time getting in any practice. Friday the Wildcats return to Tyler to play in a John Tyler tournament.
