Wildcats Team Tennis Senior Night Versus Marshall Cancelled

Wildcats team tennis Coach Tony Martinez said the Marshall Mavericks could not field a team and as a result have forfeited their match with Sulphur Springs.

The two teams were originally slated to meet Monday, Oct. 4 at the Tennis Center, but Coach Martinez knew going into the match-up that the Mavericks would have trouble fielding a team.

He said during the Oct. 2 edition of the coach’s show that they would only be able to put a few players out on the court due to COVID-19, so the Wildcats coach said he planned on giving JV and freshmen players some real-time action.

Unfortunately, though, Coach Martinez confirmed over text on Monday, Oct. 4 that the match-up would have to be pushed to Wednesday or Thursday to best allow the Mavericks to be able to put something together in time for a match-up, the final regular season competition for team tennis before Bi-District.

Even worse for the Wildcats, Marshall confirmed to Coach Martinez Tuesday morning that they could not make it work, between struggling to field a team due to illness and conflicting schedules between the two schools and as a result the final match for Sulphur Springs has officially been ruled a 1-0 forfeit for Marshall.

Now, Wildcats team tennis will shift their focus to the winner of John Tyler and Whitehouse, who played Tuesday night to determine who will get the #1 and the #2 seed.

The Bi-District, or first round of playoffs is set to take place on Oct. 13.
