 On August 26, the boys tennis team competed against Highland in a competitive match. Although the boys are able to continue with their season, there are some restrictions on what is and isn’t allowed at the matches due to COVID-19.

   “We are taking a lot of precautions; we have our masks on all the time when we are not hitting. We also sanitize when we come off the courts. We are doing a pretty good job at that,” Head Coach Ralph Holden said.

The tennis team is following the protocol in order to keep their season under way. However, it is taking the teammates some adjusting to get used to the new ways of playing tennis.

   “This season compared to last has changed greatly due to COVID-19. We have to socially distance, and it doesn’t even seem like real life anymore,” Kyle Kennedy (11) said.

Aside from the COVID-19 guidelines, the boys tennis team has had a great start to their season. The boys were able to keep the momentum going throughout the match.

   “We’re a deep team this year, we can go 8 or 9 kids deep. The depth and the guys that have played last year have a year of experience under their belt, that goes a long way. Our singles are really solid. we have a one doubles team that is returning with experience so two doubles is the only team without much experience, but that’s okay,” Coach Holden said.

At the end of the match, the boys won against Highland with a final score of 5-0. Congratulations to the boys for winning this match, and good luck to them as they continue on with their season.
