Tennis Balls

Soon District 15-5A interests will gather together to determine all important seedling for next week’s District Tennis Tournament in Texarkana.

It takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday, April 13-14.

To get ready for district opponents, the Wildcats played in a Wills Point tournament last Thursday (April 1) and in a Tyler tournament Monday.

Wildcats senior Harleigh Stegient broke her wrist when she fell in a singles’ match in a Pleasant Grove tournament on March 26. She continued to play a couple of sets after the incident. She is now in a cast but she is still trying to play. Wildcats Tennis Coach Tony Martinez has switched her to less demanding doubles with some good results. She’s playing with Ella Ray. The pair ended up taking first place in the consolation bracket at both Wills Point and Tyler.

Coach Martinez has moved #1 girls’ player Jeauxleigh Cantu to singles for district play. Cantu took first place at Wills Point and was second at Tyler. Also at Wills Point, the Wildcats’ mixed doubles team of Tate Smith and Paige Miesse took first place in the consolation bracket.

The mixed doubles team of Alex Romero and Emily Dick made it to the semifinals in the main draw at Wills Point. At Tyler Coach Martinez said Tyler Legacy, a top ten team in state in Class 6A, dominated matches. Now Coach Martinez is hoping for some favorable draws for next week’s district tournament.
