Redhawks tennis is now only one tournament away from their district tournament after competing in the Rockhill Varsity Tournament on Friday. “It was a great tournament for our varsity team,” assistant coach Neil Grobler said.

Warning: This article contains a brief mention of suicide.

Exactly thirty years to the day Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain took his own life, the Redhawks tennis team channeled his signature raw energy to find themselves “in bloom” during their tournament at Rock Hill High School Friday. 

Junior Aarya Mehta and freshman Ethan Tjong finished in first place in boys’ doubles, freshman Ganesh Gowda grabbed the silver in singles, and senior Purnoor Sharma and junior Krish Pokle placed third in boys’ doubles, along with freshman Ranveer Awasthi and junior Branden Bahk. 

“It was a great tournament for our varsity team,” assistant coach Neil Grobler said. “We competed well and many of our players made the semi finals. I’m hoping we can take this momentum into our Heritage tournament next Friday.”

Junior Hailey Zhang is optimistic about the rest of the tournament season.

“We know all of our matches are going to be super close, super competitive, because everyone is trying to make districts and ultimately regionals,”  Zhang said. “But I’m feeling pretty good about our chances in those.”
