Both the girls and the boys tennis teams ended their seasons in the Sweet Sixteen round of playoffs last Wednesday at Greenbrier.

The girls team lost the second round of playoffs 3-0 and the boys lost 3-1. Although the season has come to an end, there were improvements throughout.

“Teamwork, working together, especially the doubles teams, learning how to move on the court, and communicating better improved as we went along,” head tennis coach Amy Evert said.

Key players this year included junior Charles Parnell who played line 1 singles for the boys team, as well as senior Kayden Parker, who played line 1 singles for the girls.

“The stamina of the singles players [improved with] the harder matchups with the teams we’ve played,” Evert said. “[It] just gave them more strategies to use and more stamina as they played longer matches.”

The girls team finished out the season with an 11-6 overall record, while the boys were 10-7. Both teams had a 6-0 regular season region record.
