The rallies have come to an end. The Wildkats put their rackets down as their season closes. Wildkat tennis had their last game last Friday. 

 Lots of players worked on specific skills to better themselves.   

“I learned different foot work and how it benefit me in the future,” junior Nicholas Pate said.

The freshman experience has been great so far.

“My freshman year in tennis has been a lot of fun and hard work,” freshman Colin Linton said. “For next year I am going to be practicing on my own to get better so I can go against better people.”

Seniors have been practicing their leadership skills throughout the season to set an example.

“I have improved as a leader by making sure to push and motivate the team,” senior Megan Leblanc said.

There are high hopes for the spring season.

“The team could have done better, but we put up a fight and will come back stronger next season,” Pate said. 

For seniors, this is their last fall season.

“The best part of senior season was going on trips and bonding with the team,” Leblanc said.

Not only are skills needed to succeeded in the sport, it is also the mentality.

“But one thing I took away from this past season was that our team has the potential to compete with our distract, we just need to get in the mentality for it,” junior Ryan Glasgow said.
