After ending its season on a 12-match winning-streak, the tennis team is scheduled to visit McKinney Boyd for the bi-district championship at 3:45 p.m.

With the high possibility of rain in the forecast, there is a contingency plan for the match to be held tomorrow at 12:45 at the high school in case the conditions are unplayable.

Head coach Adam Cherry reflected on the lessons his team’s performance during the regular season.

We have played and beat several teams ranked inside the top 25 in the state,” Cherry said. “After losing our first match of the year, we have gone on a run winning 12 consecutive matches in a row.”

In order to prepare for this week’s match, Cherry said the team emphasized the serving aspect of the game.

“Our main focus has been serves and returns this year,” Cherry said. “Improving our second serves and working on keeping returns away from the net person are keys for us in doubles.”

Sophomore William Guo said the team has high expectations heading into the bi-district championship.

“We hope to advance to the regional finals for two years in a row,” Guo said.
