Boy’s Tennis Summary

November 6, 2017

            This year the Lexington Boy’s tennis team completed a successful 2017 campaign with high performances by their seniors and with tremendous growth from their younger players. Tennis season is a grueling two and a half month stretch of back to back duals and even invites some times where players play up to five or six matches a day. The players this year exhibited a tremendous amount of effort and commitment to the program, especially towards the new head coach, Zack Wayman. The players involved in the successful season includes, seniors; Josue Avila, Kobe Lo, Ethan McKenna, Bryan Nguyen, Tanner Rowe, and our student manager Javier Rodriguez. Each one of these individuals performed above and beyond expectations and provided great leadership and role modeling to many of the younger players some of whom have never played tennis until this year. Junior team members include; Trystan Berry, Will Luther, Isaac McDowell, and Edwin Pineda, Sophomores; Tate Amos, Efren Aguirre, Daniel Escalante, and Eli Young, Freshman; Keith Allen, Marcus Cureton, Henry Goodwin, and Arthur Zamudio-Ortiz. The highlight of the season was our varsity team which consisted of, Josue Avila, Trystan Berry, Kobe Lo, Ethan McKenna, Bryan Nguyen, and Tanner Rowe, finished 2nd overall as a team at the Columbus Invite. This was the start of a successful stretch of matches being played competitively. We had two seeds make it to the second round of state, #1 Singles: Tanner Rowe who would eventually lose to the third place overall finisher, and #2 Doubles: Kobe Lo and Bryan Nguyen who would eventually lose to the second place finishers at State. Our #2 Singles player: Josue Avila, lost in the first round but went to a tie breaker and fought valiantly representing his school well. Our #1 Doubles team: Trystan Berry and Ethan McKenna played their best tennis of the season, but it wasn’t quite enough as they fell in a tight first round matchup. Even though the record might not show, this was a highly successful year for Lexington Boy’s Tennis. They improved constantly throughout the year and did so rallying, supporting, and pushing each other everyday. Next year should be a promising year for our team as the seniors leave us with quite a legacy. We hope we can embody the commitment and dedication these seniors left us with, and hope that everyone continues to come out and cheer on your Lexington Boy’s Tennis Team next year.
