PREDICTED DIVISION FINISH
We will be competitive in the American Division. Having not played most of the teams, it’s difficult to come in and make a prediction. We promise to compete and improve each week.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON
We are a very young team with only one senior, but we have a few players with varsity experience. Players moving up from JV have a learning curve ahead, but they are progressing very nicely. All of our returning players, as well as Zane Bekheet have been working very hard in our summer program, and it shows. On the JV side, we have some players out for tennis for the first time, many of whom have been in our summer program and are ready to compete.
We are looking forward to tennis in the SBAAC. It’s great to be in a conference once again that actually has a league tennis tournament. We are looking forward to hosting both the American and National division tournaments at our courts. We, along with Mason and Centerville, have enough courts and space to host OHSAA and USTA tournament events. I’m glad the SBAAC recognizes this and we are happy to welcome both divisional tournaments to our tennis complex, which we are very proud of.
