In their first round of playoffs Tennis will face the #2 state ranked Wakeland Wolverines. The team will look to not only advance, but break their two game losing streak.

Redhawks tennis (4-3) looks to end their two-game losing streak as they soar into the playoffs Tuesday at 4 p.m., facing the #2 state-ranked Wakeland Wolverines (6-0) at Memorial High School.

“Coach Davis and I are very proud of what our varsity group has accomplished so far this season,” assistant tennis coach Neil Grobler said. “We started the season creating goals – and a common goal for the players and the coaches was to make the playoffs – not all teams progress into the playoffs. We accomplished that goal and now view each additional match as a great competitive challenge and opportunity to continue adding to the story of an already accomplished and successful team tennis season.”

Grobler notes that the Redhawks will be facing a tough opponent, but is aware that this is what the team signed up for by making the playoffs.

“As always, the Redhawk Varsity Tennis Team will leave it all on the court,” Grobler said. “We will spend our energy on our own effort and focus, and not worry about the player on the other side of the net. It’ll be a difficult match, but I know our group is excited for the toughest of challenges.”

Regardless of the match’s outcome, junior Krish Pokle believes that the team secured a victory simply because of their position.

“[I] definitely [wanted] to make the playoffs, and we achieved that,” Pokle said. “So I believe we [have been] pretty successful.”
