KEY PLAYERS LOST

Matt Keiter 1st singles last year, 1st Team SCOL

RIGHT NOW I LIKE

The team has a great energy and is excited about tennis. We are young but experienced thanks to the great work Cathy Fay has done with our middle school club team.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

We just need to hit more balls. We haven’t been able to hit outside much due to the weather so timing is a bit off.

LEAGUE FAVORITE

Chillicothe and us. Miami Trace will be tough this year as well.
