On Thursday, October 18, the tennis teams faced a tough battle between Wills Point High School who is ranked 10th in the state. The playoff match ended with Kilgore roughly losing with seven points and Wills Point winning with 12 points.

After the match, Coach Jason Maroney gives the tennis teams a pep talk about what they could have done better, and what they can improve on.

“I feel like we have a lot of improving to do, and Wills Point was the better team,” Maroney said. “I was happy with how the kids fought, though. The effort was there.”

Since the match the tennis team has mostly been conditioning in order to become quick on the court and stronger with hitting.

“I think that our boys team needs to get better at the net, while our girls need to improve technique and work on getting faster/more explosive,” Maroney said.

Even though they lost their match, Coach Maroney thinks the team is dedicated, clutch and self-motivated. They have worked all summer to get better with everyone on the team. The tennis team is being more focused with making sure they are prepared for the spring and are hoping to come with many victories.

“During the season, we try to do a lot of match play, or situational tennis,” Maroney said. “We try to implement drills that could mimic what they would do in a match.”
