Tennis has had a very successful season and have a bye this week going into playoffs. Freshman varsity player Allison Hartsell says the team’s amazing chemistry, “gets us many of our wins because we are always there to support each other and give each other confidence, making the hard work and pain worth it.” She added that it’s a challenge for her to stay consistent and positive, but even after a recent personally tough match she was able to celebrate with her teammates when they won the CMAC Championship. Hartsell also noted, “our coaches always know exactly what we need to work, never making us feel bad about ourselves and they don’t get frustrated easily. This influence makes our team improve a lot more and have a good time.” The girl’s tennis team will be continuing their season in the playoffs next week.
