Team tennis continues a long stay at home heading into the playoffs season. In their first home game of four straight games, manager Martinez and his team took care of business.

On Tuesday, September 13, Sulfur Springs hosted Atlanta to start the district game.

The lack of two top players, Ian Westland and Trinity Luckett, is never ideal for a squad.

Even so, Sulfur Springs didn’t miss a beat, easily beating Atlanta 10-2 to start the district game 1-0.

Tony Martinez, without the two players mentioned, put Oscar Guerrero and Ellen Sand in mixed doubles. The two tennis players had never played together before being placed on the court against Atlanta.

The tennis team’s coach said the mixed doubles duo pulled multiple tiebreakers to win the match in the third set. Coach Martínez said Guerrero had never played a mixed doubles match before Tuesday’s match.

Even so, they managed to get the win to give Sulfur Springs another big win in their 10-2 victory.

Seeing what the mixed doubles team could do without previous game time boosted his already high confidence in his team.

“I feel confident that I can put any [the] team members with someone, and [they’ll] still has a good performance,” coach Martinez told his team after the win on Tuesday.

Next up, Coach Martinez and the tennis team present the Rockwall HSAA on Tuesday, September 20th.

The tennis coach said he expects a tough fight. He said that from top to bottom the team is loaded with talent.

This match, the second consecutive home game for Sulfur Springs, begins at the Tennis Center at 4pm.
