Thursday Game Day Has Both Soccer Teams, Team Tennis in Action

Thursday, Jan. 6 is a busy one for Sulphur Springs sports as three teams, both soccer squads and team tennis are in action. 

Wildcats soccer is the first team up on Thursday, Jan. 6 in day one of the Forney tournament. 

Coach Alexi Upton and his squad take on Mesquite Poteet at 1:45 P.M. at City Bank Stadium in Forney.

Sulphur Springs plays again in Forney on Friday, Jan. 7 at Jackson MS against Ennis and Crandall at 10:15 A.M. and 3:30 P.M. 

Wildcats Team Tennis had an early start as well on this Thursday game day, taking on Sherman in the DFW metroplex at 2 P.M. 

The tennis program, led by head coach Tony Martinez had a good fall season, qualifying for the playoffs before falling to Whitehouse in the Bi-District round. 

Coach Martinez’s squad made leaps and bounds of improvement in the fall, winning several matches against opponents in years past they perhaps were swept by, including winning some matches in the Bi-District loss to Whitehouse.

Team tennis look to improve upon their solid fall season by starting out Spring 2022 with a win in Sherman. 

Moving over to women’s soccer, the Lady Cats were originally slated to participate in the Longview tournament but that has since been changed to the Kilgore tourney. 

Thursday, Jan. 6 has Coach Javier Aguayo’s team lacing up at 5:30 P.M. for their first contest of the tournament against Bullard. 

Sulphur Springs has two more days of the Kilgore tournament on Friday and Saturday: 

  • Friday, Jan. 7 — Spring Hill @ 1:15 P.M. 
  • Saturday, Jan. 8 — Pleasant Grove @ 5:30 P.M.
