The fall tennis team finished their season with a record of 3-3 and a district performance of 1-3 .

The players finished fourth in zone and competed against the Tomball Cougars who placed second in zone, during district on Oct.3.

The team lost all matches 10-0. The Tomball players won the minimal amount of games that was needed to win, so the Caney Creek players did not continue on playing in the tournament .

“We got beat by a really good team,” head coach David Hardy said. “They had competed against a 6A school, who had a lot more kids and a much bigger program.”

The tennis team, competed against Splendora, Porter, Crosby, and lost against Kingwood Park, Grand Oaks and New Caney.

The best game the athletes participated in and had a great performance was playing against the Porter Spartans.

“It was do or die for playoffs,” junior Alehem Cornejo said. “(It was the ) last game of the season and we had to go out with a bang. I would always keep repeating in my mind, ‘Good, I scored’ and if not, ‘It’s not over; so finish it.’”

Last year the tennis program had many freshman competing in varsity. According to Hardy, those now sophomores have been “the nucleus of the team” while those and many of the other athletes attended practices and had the self motivation along with the desire to work and get better on their consistency on skills.

“As a group we all have our own set of skills needed to win against out opponents,” junior Anna Cox said. “That’s what makes us uniquely different.”

Many of the athletes had the common goal of trying to win as many of the games they took part in during the fall season and now being able to be as successful as they can for spring season.

Spring tennis begins in late January, and the athletes are “ready to taste gold.”
