Wildcats Team Tennis Coach Finds Silver Lining in Loss at Texas High

Smiley face

The Wildcats Team Tennis squad absorbed a 19-0 loss to district juggernaut Texas High in Texarkana Tuesday afternoon. Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez found some things to like in his players. He said all of his players came off the court saying that they played better than usual. He said no one’s head was down and there was no complaining. Coach Martinez said a common theme was that players said they got to deuce in a lot of points but could not get the next big ones. He said the players were also discussing things they need to improve on in their games. Coach Martinez said they lost on the court but won mentally off the court. He said that’s all he can ask of the players. Several Wildcats did better than 6-0 or 6-1 scores. The boys doubles’ team of Tate Smith and Alex Romero lost a 6-2 game. The mixed doubles’ team of Jeauxleigh Cantu and Carlos Lopez-Sardinas lost 6-2, 6-2. Lopez-Sardinas lost his boys singles match, 8-3. Romero lost a set of boys doubles, 6-2. Cantu and Harleigh Stegient both lost in girls’ singles, 8-4. Coach Martinez said you can’t help but notice all the signs of past successes when you visit Texas High. He said Texarkana is a great tennis town and he said Texas High has had great coaches. He said Tigers’ players play just about every weekend. Coach Martinez said that concept can be a hard sell for him with kids that enjoy doing other things. Still he said he is trying to build the sport here. He hoped an event last Monday becomes the start of something big. Coach Martinez had a middle school practice that usually draws a half dozen kids or so. Last Monday he was amazed when 24 kids showed up. He said that’s how something big for local tennis can get started. The Wildcats, 1-1 in district play and 2-1 overall, continue district play next Tuesday at 4 p.m. against Longview at the Wildcat Tennis Center.
