Coming out with good scores, the tennis team is out for a successful season.

“So far this year we’ve seen a variety of competition,” Coach Curtis Renz said. “We competed at Cimarron, it was about 2 or 3A schools. We placed first as a team there, so they were kind of lower in the competition level. But we went to Wichita Collegiate and they’re like top competition so we’ve seen low and high, we haven’t seen ours. We haven’t seen WAC competitions yet.”
