Tennis into full swing

Tennis swings into their season Wednesday in their first match against Frisco away.

With school back in session across Frisco ISD and much of North Texas, the familiar cacophony of noise that accompanies learning has returned to the school’s halls.

But the inside of the building isn’t the only place where students are raising a racket.

The tennis team is preparing for its first District 10-5A match of the 2023-24 school year, which will see them play Frisco High School on Wednesday at 4 p.m. 

“Frisco [High School] has a competitive tennis program,” assistant tennis coach Neil Grobler said. “It will be a tough match, [so] our team has really been working on playing smart, high percentage tennis [and] not going for unnecessary risks.”

Junior Hailey Zhang, who finished second in girls doubles during the UIL 5A state tournament last season, believes that this strategy could pay off in what has the potential to be a nail-bitingly close match. 

“I think it will be close, but if everyone does their best, hopefully we can pull off the win,” Zhang said. 

Correction: Neil Grobler is the assistant coach.
