After another shutout win against a district opponent, the tennis team (14-1 overall, 4-0 district) will host McKinney North today at 4:30 p.m in the final district match of the season.

Head coach Adam Cherry said the team is working hard to earn its final win in district play.

We have continued working on groundstrokes, volleys, serves and returns this week,” Cherry said. “We should win, and I am hoping [for a score of] 15-4 or 14-5.”

Senior Dylan Smith said McKinney North poses a big threat because the Bulldogs have a chance to ruin the Leopards’ undefeated season in district play.

“Our match against McKinney North should be the ultimate test of the season, as there will be some easy and tough matches throughout the game,” Smith said.

Last Tuesday, the team defeated district opponent Princeton 19-0.

“No one lost a match against Princeton, [although] they had some decent players that challenged us individually.” Smith said.

After the match against Mckinney North, the team will move on to the playoffs.

“If we win district we will play the number four team out of the Frisco district,” Cherry said. “We have beaten seven out of the ten Frisco’s in preseason, but most of the matches were 11-8, so we will have a battle in the first round of the playoffs.

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.
