Facing off against 6A schools and one of the top programs in state history, the Redhawks tennis team is playing in the North Pool Tournament on Thursday where schools such as Plano West, Allen, and Highland Park await.

For senior Charlie Zhang, the tournament represents an opportunity to make an impactful return to the spring season.

“I haven’t played many tournaments this spring season, so I’m hoping to stay consistent and play competitively,” Zhang said via text. “Hopefully I can win a few matches too.”

Zhang is not alone in his fine tuned focus – junior Morgan Mowery plans to zone in on assignment-specific technique for this week’s matches.

“My goals for tomorrow are to work on new things with my partner,” she said via text. “We want to use what we’ve learned in practice to the best of our abilities.”

Ultimately, confidence is key for the Redhawks as they test their skills against Texas’ best teams.

“For our team, this is our toughest tournament all year,” Zhang said. “We are hoping to do well under pressure and even bring home a few medals.”
