2023-2024 Tennis

  • Tennis Tournament

    Posted by Coach Sanks on 4/4/2024

    The WHHS Cougar Tennis team had a good day at their tournament on Wednesday, April 3, with 3 young men making it to the podium. 

    Erick Perez made it all the way to the championship match in boys singles, but fell to Callisburg to bring home the silver medal. 

    The podium fight for third place in boys' doubles was all green and gold as our own Roberto Torres & Jose Mendieta had to face off against teammates Kevin Jimenez & Jonathan Ramirez. Roberto & Jose ended up winning 6-3, but either way, Western Hills was going to win!

    The rest of the team did quite well, too, with several coming up just short of the podium. Jesus Alvizo barely missed 3rd place in boys singles, and Issac Street & Vianet Garcia barely missed 3rd place in mixed doubles.

    The problem with tournament tennis is that you can have a great day and still not have the final results you want; you can rack up a day's worth of Ws, and a single L sends you home empty-handed. That was the story yesterday, Wednesday, February 21, as many of your WHHS tennis players fought valiantly deep into medal territory but came up 1 game shy of the medal podium. 

    Eight of our players made it all the way to the quarterfinals of their respective categories, playing against 20 different schools, many of which are regular attenders of the regional and state tournaments. Congratulate the following students for their outstanding performance yesterday: Jacky Mares & Estrella Arredondo - 4th place in girls' doubles, Roberto Torres & Jose Mendietta - 4th place in boys' doubles, John Portillo & Madi Allen - 4th place in mixed doubles, and Elaina Montalvo - 4th place in girls' singles.

    And finally, be sure to congratulate Issac Street for his first ever podium placement with a third-place finish in boys' singles!

  • Season Opener

    Posted by Coach Sanks on 2/15/2024

    On Wednesday, February 14, the WHHS Tennis Team competed in its season opening tournament and had some big victories, both moral and literal. Several of our biggest wins came in the form of best-all-time performances, even though they didn't end with a medal placement. We did come home with some hardware, though, as six of our athletes received bronze medals (third place) in their tournament categories! 

    Kevin Jiminez and Jonathan Ramirez placed third in Boys Doubles, Sam Chavez and Jessica Hernandez placed third in Girls Doubles, and Madi Allen and John Portillo placed third in Mixed Doubles!

  • Fall Season

    Posted by Coach Soto & Coach Sanks on 10/10/2023

    Yesterday, Monday, October 9, marked the end of the fall season for your WHHS Cougar Tennis Team, during the Regions match against Panther Creek High School of Frisco. Overall, your tennis team had a great team season, ending with a very respectable 9W -5L record and placing 3rd in our district. Unfortunately, our biggest opponent this season was the weather, which really interfered with our ability to practice, but this young team has improved greatly over the last four months and is already itching to get ready for the spring individual season. Be sure to congratulate all the tennis players on a great season and on all of their hard work!

    Yesterday, Tuesday, September 26, your Western Hills Cougars played their last match of Fall District play against the Benbrook Bobcats. Though we did not score the overall match points we needed to win as a team, we improved greatly since our last meeting with our friends down the street, and we had some very exciting matches with some big wins! Congratulate and encourage all the tennis players you know as they prepare for their next playoff match, tentatively scheduled for Monday, October 9.

  • Ranchview Meet

    Posted by Coach Soto on 9/21/2023

    The tennis team played the defending District Champs last night and played a tremendous match. Although we did not win, the kids showed major improvement. The weather has not been nice for us, but the team has persevered. We have a very young team this year, and we see many bright spots. The team has really bought into the "Cougar Up" mentality, regardless of the circumstances, and that has led to making it to the play-offs again.

  • Ranchview Wolves

    Posted by Coach Soto & Coach Sanks on 8/30/2023

    On Tuesday, August 29 the Cougar tennis team had its first district game against the reigning district champs, the Ranchview Wolves. The final score was not in our favor, but your cougars played much better than the scores would suggest. Almost every set played came close to winning sets, but we struggled to close each one out. Your Cougars played hard against a strong opponent, and we are still in a good standing for the overall district outcome we're hoping for!

  • Non-District Play

    Posted by Coach Soto on 8/16/2023

    I would like to congratulate the tennis team for a nice win last night against Northside. They wrapped up non-district play with a winning record against some tough 5A teams. Now they will start their 4A district play. They will travel to Dallas on August 29th to play Ranchview. Thanks for all your support.

  • Brewer Meet

    Posted by Coaches Soto & Sanks on 8/9/2023

    This morning your tennis Cougars had a tough loss to the much larger Brewer Bear tennis team.

    Sometimes, though, a loss is more beneficial than an easy win. We were able to recognize several weak points and several opportunities for growth, both as individual players and as a team, so we still count it as a net positive. The season is still very young, and we have a strong looking team!

    This Friday we square off against the Bridgeport Bulls.
