The WHS Girls Tennis team has been hard at it all week, this first official week of FALL SPORT PRACTICES across the State. Coaches Brian Aufdengarten and Daphne Adams were putting the girls through their tennis rigors Thursday evening at the Crusader Courts on 9th St. They have a lot of fun at their sport and the coaches account for a lot of that. The numbers are down from last year but some very quality players returning for action this year nonetheless. They have a lot of talent, just not as much depth. "4" Seniors, all State Tournament Qualifiers last season will lead the Lady Crusaders this Fall. Mekenna Adams, Avery Rusk, Lexi Saffell and Abby Lowe. Mekenna has qualified for State and medaled all 3 of her underclassman seasons. A lot of excitement lies ahead for sure!
Their first Varsity action will be on Tue. Aug. 29th, hosting Buhler, Conway Springs and Eisenhower HS’s down at the 9th street courts. That action will get underway at 3:00PM. The weather Thursday evening at the courts was PERFECTO…very nice temperatures and not a puff of wind…perfect tennis conditions and the girls and coaches were enjoying it. The temps on the cement courts "seem" to get as high as 120 or so when it’s HOT & SUNNY so cooler weather this time of year is much appreciated no doubt! Probably won't last.
GOOD LUCK ON THE 29TH!!
