The varsity tennis team traveled to Wills Point last Tuesday, hoping for a good start to the new Spring season. The Lions tied the Tigers at 10-10 with no deciding match. The only way to decide who wins a tie, is with whoever wins the most matches at the No. 1 position. Kaufman won more matches at No. 1 than Wills Point by 3-2.

Wills Point has been a dominant team in 2014-2015, so  the result should give the Lions confidence going into this long new season.

The spring season is different from the fall season. In the fall, the players play as a team, meaning that their match is going to help determine the overall score for the team against another team. In the spring, the players play on the team as an individual in their event. They are limited to playing only one event, meaning that if the coach puts you in singles …. singles is going to be what they play for the rest of the season.

Another attribute the spring season is that the athletes play for themselves pretty much. If someone from the team loses in their event, their result doesn’t affect the whole team.

Here are the match winners from the match against Wills Point:

Girls Doubles

  • Jennifer Cordero/ Fallon Owen won both of their matches
  • Darci Darragh/Ryleigh Kelley won one of their two tough matches
