Tennis to visit Sherman

Freshmen Claire Beckett and Olivia Miller celebrate during practice.

The tennis team (12-1, 2-0) will host district opponent, Sherman today at 4:30 p.m. The Leopards are riding a ten-match winning streak.

The team is practicing hard this week in preparation for the Sherman Bearcats.

“We are doing drills, playing practice matches, and conditioning every week,” head coach Adam Cherry said. “We should win 19-0.”

Sherman has only one loss this year which came to Princeton, ending its six-match winning streak earlier in the year.

“The coaches have been working with everyone on our doubles strategy so we can have a good lead when we play better teams,” senior Dylan Smith said.

Last week, the team easily defeated Denison 19-0, winning all seven doubles matches.

“We can still improve on closing the net, volleys, and overheads,” Cherry said.

Smith applauded his team’s effort against Denison last week.

“No one dropped a set last match against Denison, which is very difficult to do,” Smith said. “I think we have all played very well even though we had a lot more experience against them.”

Next week, the team will go on the road to face district opponent Princeton.

About the Contributors
Drew Doig, Staff Writer
Entering his fourth and final year on The Red Ledger staff, senior Drew Doig will continue to be a sports writer. Drew, or “Doig” as he’s more commonly called, is a member of the varsity basketball team, National Honor Society, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Outside of school, Doig enjoys hanging out with friends and watching sports. A fan of everything Auburn, Doig plans to attend Auburn University. However, with major persuasion from his brother Grant, he could end up attending the University of Arkansas. Doig also enjoys playing video games and will take on any worthy opponent in NCAA 14 or NBA 2K. You can find Doig on the grill as he enjoys throwing on a nice New York Strip with fellow senior Kyle Olson. He enjoys watching The Office and will recite a line from Dwight Schrute when need be. Doig hopes that his wealth of experience on the staff and expressive personality will land him on the TRL’s heralded “RIP wall” next to some of the all time greats that came through E103. Doig couldn’t be more excited to be on the staff for his senior year along with fellow veteran Joseph Vastano, and he’s ready to take the class to an elite level.
Olivia Lauter, Section Editor
Heading into her fourth and final year in TRL, senior Olivia Lauter could not be more thrilled to soak up every last minute of shooting sports, events and portraits for her favorite publication. Lauter has spent every day of her high school career with a camera around her neck, and you won’t catch her without it until graduation day. As well as being the photo editor for TRL, Lauter is a varsity cheerleader and involved in PALS and NHS. When she’s not on the sidelines with her camera or cheering on the Leopards, Lauter is with her friends, who she adores more than life itself. You will probably hear “last time, best time” and how “bittersweet” senior year is continually from Lauter this year, but she is just excited to spend one more year doing what she loves alongside the people she loves on TRL.
