Boy’s Tennis Looks for a Fresh Start

As winter sports conclude, spring sports are beginning, including the tennis team whose members are looking for a fresh start. With Boy’s Tennis essentially lacking a team last year, this season will provide new opportunities and a chance for them to prove themselves.

Last season was a disappointment, with only a few practices occurring before the season quickly ended. According to junior Ivan Dronsick, multiple people graduated, leaving them with a lackluster team. This situation was made even worse when several members of the team failed to show up for practice one day. Dronsick described this as “the final nail in the coffin” for last season. However, he sees a lot of potential for this season, especially with many team members from two seasons ago making a return.

Despite not having a formal season last year, many members of the team still continued to play tennis for fun. This sets them up well for this season, as does their enthusiasm to play, with members like Junior Anthony Gacia saying, “I really want to play a game because I [enjoy] tennis.” Members like Garcia have wanted to play for a while, but with the team not existing last year, they had to wait until now to finally join the team.

Last week during homeroom, a tennis interest meeting took place where a few new people expressed interest. One new face is Freshman Grayson Tautic, who sees tennis as an opportunity to “spend time with friends and learn more about the game.” For many members, this season is not just about playing tennis, but also about hanging out and having a good time.

After not having a season last year, the fate of the boy’s tennis team seemed up in the air. Despite this, many former members are excited to make their return and finally play tennis again. With many returning players and some new people with great potential, they have a good chance to do well and make a name for themselves in the upcoming spring season.

Hi, I’m Charlie, the most average writer ever. I'm a junior, but this is my first year writing for The Falconer as part of journalism I. I run cross country and track, even though I'm not very good. My greatest skill is being kinda good with computers, in fact I built mine myself. My hobbies include academically enriching activities such as YouTube shorts and video games. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read about me.
