The Aledo varsity tennis team began their Spring season on Friday, Jan. 27th in the annual Peach Bowl tournament. They completed the day in strong fashion with 4 groups finishing in the top 4 places of their bracket. All 10 groups competed in the ‘A’ Division, meaning they all were seeded in the top 16 of the 24 entries in their specific discipline. The doubles team of Scott Mason/Hogan Posey won 1st place. In mixed doubles, Craig Mason/Bryanna Orr finished in 3rd place. Both Elli Kate Bussmeir, in girls singles, and Kenley Germany/Paige Federman, in girls doubles, finished 4th. Gracie Heydman won the consolation championship in girls singles. The next varsity tournament will be hosted by Boswell next Friday, February 3rd.
It was a great start to the new season. We got to play a lot of tennis (nearly everyone played 4 matches each). All of our players competed well and showed some bright spots in their shot making. We will build on these results and grow as a team as we strive to get better every time we step on the court.
