Young Team Finishing Strong
The men’s tennis team has managed
to pull off a solid 5-8 record thus far this year, even with the loss
of most of their seniors.
“The team is really young,” junior Carson Cherry said. “But with all that and our new coach, we are doing pretty good.”
With the season wrapping up, the Pirates are looking to finish strongly.
“We only have a couple matches left,” coach Mika Hunter said. “Our senior night is April 19th against Jordan.”
The last time the Pirates played the Falcons, they were at their court and lost. This time it is at home and the Pirates are hoping for a win.
“Although we lost last time, our team has improved a lot,” Cherry said. “We have a good shot at beating them.”
With five freshman starters in their first six, the team may not have as much experience as other teams, but they have high hopes for more improvement in later years.
“Our team works well together and we are constantly getting better,” Cherry said. “We are going to be really good in the years to come.”
