The fall tennis season ended last weekend as the Leopards were eliminated from the playoffs after a 4-10 loss against Frisco in the area semi-finals.

“I think we had a successful season,” head coach Adam Cherry said. “I was hoping to make it to to the regional and state tournaments, but I was proud of our kids.”

The team defeated Frisco Independence 10-5 in the area-quarter finals before ultimately losing in the semi-finals. The Leopards ended the season going 12-3 overall and they went undefeated in district play.

“This season was one to remember for sure,” junior player Reed Fraser said. “We were undefeated district champions and it felt awesome.”

There were several standouts on the tennis team this year. Senior Brittani Brooks went 4-0, winning all of her matches in the area tournament playing number one doubles and singles. Sophomore Brandon Su remained undefeated for the entire fall season in singles.

Junior Daniela Benigno went undefeated until her last singles match of the season. Benigno also clinched the match against Frisco Independence by winning a 10-point tiebreaker to cap off an exciting victory.

Next up for the Leopard tennis team is the spring “individual” season, so as soon as Christmas Break ends, the team will begin playing individual tournaments, Cherry said.
