Boys’ tennis serves skillful displays

With their thirteenth district title in a row, the boys’ tennis team continued its dominance of the Concorde district.  Coming into the season, the team had never lost a match in the Concorde district, which it joined in 2005.

At the beginning of the season, not many in the Concorde district expected the team to continue its title streak.

“We exceeded expectations; we lost a lot of seniors and still we were able to finish with the district title,” junior Jacob Schreiman said.

The team was able to succeed, in part, because of their strong doubles lineup, which won at least two of the three doubles matches in each team match.

Even though the team was challenged for the first time in the district, the team was able use its smart, fundamentally sound play to come out victorious.

“We have worked hard in practice and Coach Paul [Fisher] has helped us tremendously with our fundamentals,” senior David Weinberg said.

Schreiman said, “We were not as physically gifted as we were in years past, but we were able to thrive because of our tough, scrappy play.”
