The women’s tennis team is definitely a team full of “aces” this year. With COVID-19 delaying their season until spring last year, the ladies are happy to be back out on the court during their regular season. The season has now ended and the ladies had a record of 9-0 in conference and 16-4 overall.

The team has had a great season and felt confident going into Conference Championships. The women’s tennis team is a dedicated group of girls with a great support system; something that helps the team succeed is their teamwork and uplifting spirit. Senior, Tamia Spence said, “This tennis season has been an outstanding experience for me. I was out due to injury before and had to work my way back into practice and routine. Having the constant support of my coach and teammates is something that I will never take for granted. I am so glad I am able to end my senior season playing and being confident in what I do and with my team!” The ladies have their Conference Championships on October 12th and 13th, but, on October 6th, because of their win against Heritage High School, they moved to first in the conference which resulted in them bringing home the Conference Title. Tamia was one of the athletes chosen to play doubles in the conference winning tournament and she says, “Winning conference is such a big deal for us seniors..being able to have a win like that during our senior year is crazy. I was so happy that I was able to participate and help our team succeed. It was fun and exhausting but definitely worth it.” 

With a well deserved Conference Champion title, the women’s tennis season is almost over for the ladies with the NAC VI (Northern Athletic Conference 6) Conference tournament still left to play. This Wednesday afternoon, October 13th, will determine the conference tournament winners, good luck to everyone today! The future of the women’s tennis team is looking bright. Congratulations to the team members and Coach Davis, your hard work does not go unnoticed!
