Wildcats Team Tennis Coach Tony Martinez is playing the cards he has been dealt. Along with other Sulphur Springs High School fall sports, the team tennis season has been delayed until Sept. 8.
Coach Martinez continues to meet with his team for skill work several times a week at the Wildcats Tennis Center. He says the delay for the season has actually been beneficial for his program. Coach Martinez says the team has been able to do a lot of good things this summer.
He says team members have had the option of attending sessions three times a week since The Edge got started on June 8. He has mixed in a week off from time to time.
Coach Martinez says he has watched his players grow and get better this summer. He says the kids want to be there and, he adds, he does too. He says the players have been very coachable this summer.
Coach Martinez usually spends a lot of June and July at University of Texas’ tennis camps. This summer’s experience has been such a productive one, he says he may spend future summers in Sulphur Springs.
The SSHS Team Tennis fall season will begin with a bang. The Wildcats open the regular season with a home district match against Mount Pleasant on Sept. 8.
