The boys tennis season has started and Coach Mike Terry, along with a few players, are excited for the season and events that are coming up.
“We are hoping to win the Western Big 6 Conference and Sectionals. Sectionals will be harder because we are a smaller team but I believe we can do it. We are also anticipating invitationals at Rock Island, Moline, and Naperville. We are definitely anticipating Naperville because this is a huge tournament,” Terry said.
The team lost several seniors so they have some work to do. However, even though these seniors were key losses to the team, Terry said by adding new freshman and freshman varsity players, the boys tennis team will do really well.
Ben Oakley, senior tennis player, hopes that by adding these players, they will build a stronger team.
“Losing some of our good players had a big impact to our team, but we added new players that I think will do well to help [make us a stronger team],” Oakley said.
