Thank you to Mr. Richard, Ms. LaForge, Ms. Hinds, Coach Solis, Ms. Blackmon, Ms. Boggess, and Sergeant Ayala. We played 4 matches. The faculty won two and the students won two so the winner was determined by the number of games won. The faculty won 17-13, I repeat the faculty WON! We hold the title of the first ever faculty vs. student tennis match. The results are as follows:
Tay and Isabel vs. Galbraith and Hinds(W) 6-1 Adrienne and Aaron (W) vs. Solis and Ayala 0-6 Edgar and Jaime vs. LaForge and Richard (W) 6-0 Jasmin and Esmeralda(W) vs. Boggess and Blackmon 4-6
The students and faculty had so much fun amongst all the trash talk and we did have a few spectators. Thank you to weather for cooperating.
The results are in! Tay and Isabel played extremely well at the regionals tournament. The girls were faced with the difficult task of playing the number four seeded players in their first round, they played a tough match, but fell short. The team that was seeded, later went on to place second in the tournament.

The tennis team competed in the Varsity Boswell tennis tournament on Friday, February 8th. Play didn't start until almost 11am due to temperatures being below 30 degrees. Isabel Palmaores and Tay Johnson endured the cold to get second in the girl's A doubles consolation bracket. The most exciting part is they beat two girls doubles team from our district, Lake Worth and Diamond Hill, if they continue at this rate they have a chance to perform well at our district tournament in April.

Friday, February 1st, kicked off the tennis team's first tournament of the spring season. Isabel Palamores and Tay Johnson competed as a doubles team in the I-30 Winter Slam Varsity Tournament. We were able to play one round before the rain, they played very well, but fell short to a very experienced team. This put them in the consolation bracket. Right after they finished playing the tournament was put on hold due to courts being too slick, after several attempts and rain delays the tournament was ultimately canceled. Our next tournament will be Friday, February 8th at Boswell.

After a week of rain, we had a small break and actually saw this little yellow ball in the sky. The athletes said it was the sun, but I'm not convinced. Tennis competed yesterday in the area competition. This means we advanced past district and bi-district. This was a big deal to these students who have not made playoffs as an entire team. I want to personally thank the Cougar Pride Foundation for supporting us and making the event special for the students. I am so proud of how hard the athletes fought yesterday. Unfortunately, we did not beat Argyle, they are a very strong team, but we have new goals for next year.
