Tennis took it to the court for the final time in the fall team tennis season as the Redhawks fell to District 9-5A rival Lebanon Trail High School 10-4 Tuesday in the UIL team tennis quarterfinals.

In the regular district season, the Redhawks saw a similar outcome when they lost to Lebanon Trail. However, hopes that improvement throughout the season would push the Redhawks over the edge were not enough to see the team through.

“Even though we improved through the season, so did our opponents,” sophomore Sanjheev Rao said. “We matched up the same way as last time. It was still a fun game with a lot of really good and intense points.”

While the fall season closes here for the team, head coach Erica Dopson is proud of the team’s efforts and is excited for what the spring brings.

“We fought hard and had a similar outcome to our previous match,” Dopson said. “I am proud of the fight these players gave all season. This team came together and performed strong.”
