The Redhawk tennis team is hoping to come back strong Tuesday at 4 p.m. as they enter the Wolverine’s den and take on Wakeland.

“Tonight’s match will be intense and competitive,” head coach Erica Dobson said via email. “We must be focused and play aggressive”.

The team is hoping to come back from a 13-6 loss on Friday to the state’s #1 team, Independence .

“I’m expecting for our team to bring a lot of energy and fight to our match,” senior Charlie Zheng said. “Hopefully we can start super strong with good wins in doubles like we did against Centennial, and I’m expecting our girls team to do extremely well like they have been all season”.

Tuesday’s match will go a long way in determining if the Redhawks make the playoffs.

“It’s extremely important to win tonight because this is a must win match for both us and Wakeland to make the playoffs,” Zhang said. “Our record has been very similar this season so it’ll come to do this match to see who makes it.”
