With warmer weather quickly approaching, spring sports are getting ready to be back in full swing. The boys’ varsity tennis team is very ecstatic to start their upcoming season and see all the many opportunities the season may bring.

The boys are very eager to start working with their new coach. “I am very excited about our new coach, he seems like a great guy and has a really strong plan for us to win this year. All the players that have met him seem to have a great amount of respect for him, so I am looking forward to this season and its new opportunities,” junior captain Nic Dokman said.

The boys have had a few of their captains practices at Lifetime the last couple of weeks. They are waiting until it becomes warm enough and the courts are dry to play outside. “Our captain Nick Dunnivant has been running some fun, and intense Captains practices to get our team prepared for the season,” Dokman said.

I am looking forward to this season and its new opportunities”

The boys have been working hard to set goals for not only themselves but for their team during their last few practices.” A goal for our team this year is to hopefully, make it to state, and have a strong winning record this season,” Dokman said.

After losing some crucial players, the boys are hoping to make it farther than they did last year. “After last season we lost two really strong players, Ryan Frost and Tristan Fjelstad,” Dokman said.

Although the team lost some members last season, they remain optimistic.”I think our team will be stronger this season because we have a lot of depth throughout our line up,” Dokman said.

The tennis team is nervous, but looking forward to officially start their season.
