2019 Varsity Team Tennis Season Opens!!!
The 2019 Varsity Tennis season opened at Burleson Centennial High School. The team was prepared and played extremely well but came up a little short in the season opener! The team has a solid core of senior players this year: Kayla Pargas, Alex Ibarra, Griselda Davila, Jennifer Guerrero, Kevin Jaime, and Ariana Saavedra. The Juniors are just as talented: Kelsey Dena, Aldo, Solis, Valeria Robles, Marlen Rivera, and Haely Bernal. The Sophomore class is learning and hungry for playing time: Jimena Oropeza, Victoria Guzman, Bryan Ramirez, Ely Mondragon, Alanis Humberto, and Joseph Garcia. The freshman class has some sleepers in Erick Saavedra , Devaney Alvarez, and Azaiah Henderson.
The future looks bright but, back to the match!!! The DAWGS wanted to open well, but stumbled in the doubles winning only two matches: Alex Ibarra-Jennifer Guerrero in mixed and Jimena Oropeza- Victoria Guzman getting their first varsity win at #3 girls doubles. Down 2-5 after the doubles, the team had their work ahead of them. In Girls singles, we split 3-3 with Guerrero, Davila, and Oropeza winning. Pargas dropped a heart breaker in the 3rd set tiebreaker. The boys played with heart and a great effort winning only one match; but they lost two matches in the third set tiebreakers! Ouch!
The only thing to do is look at the weaknesses, practice hard this week, and prepare for the home opener against Crowley next week on Tuesday, September 3rd at 4:00 pm.
Come out and watch the DAWGS pluck the Eagles!!
