Changes are happening on the court Friday, as the tennis team competes against Rockwall. “I am playing in boy’s doubles this time, which is a portion of the game in which I am less comfortable with compared to singles,” freshman Ranveer Awasthi said.

It’s a common cliche in sports – scratch that, in life – that hard work pays off.

But it’s something that the varsity tennis team can attest to, as endless drills and preparation on the practice court helped lead them to a 13-6 victory against the Memorial Warriors on Tuesday.

“The players did a great job of using their heads on court [and] identifying holes in their opponents’ games [to pick] on those weaknesses,” assistant tennis coach Neil Grobler. “The team continues to bring great focus on match day and their hard work in practice is paying off.”

However, Grobler is quick to point out that the match was much closer than the score may indicate.

“The match was a tricky one,” he said. “Memorial came to play, and we had to match their energy and effort on every court. The scoreboard doesn’t necessarily reflect how tough the overall match was from beginning to end.”

Senior Purnoor Sharma believes the team’s spirit truly made a difference on Tuesday.

“One thing I believe the team did well was team spirit this time,” Sharma said. “As both of our coaches have said numerous times, cheering makes a difference, and we really hit home with the cheering this time.”
