The tennis team has been off to a great start with the new season. They had a rough time getting practices in because of the rainy weather, but now that the sun has finally come out, they’ve picked up right where they left off.
The team has done a very good job being flexible with their schedules since the sport depends on the good weather. If the courts are wet, the team can’t play. They don’t have very many options if it rains because the school doesn’t have any indoor courts.
Despite these misfortunes, the head coach Mr. Bieker is really looking forward to the district tournament which is the first week of May. “It’s going to be exciting!” says Bieker. The varsity girls will be playing against several teams at the tournament.
For now the team has upcoming matches against Battle Ground and Evergreen. It’s said to be close so be sure to go and cheer on your tennis girls!
If you’re considering trying out for the team next year, Bieker strongly suggests you play as much tennis as you can between now and next year’s season. Also, “show up when tennis starts next year.”
As far as next year, Bieker has one hope… “drought.”
