Girls Tennis Team Prepares for a Successful Season
After losing their assistant varsity coach and head JV coach, the Jeff High girls tennis team is nervous but excited to see how this season will go. Freshman Adalaid Scott said, “This season is going to be really fun and I’m really excited!”
Everyone is looking forward to a fresh start and a good season filled with athleticism and competition. This is especially true for head coach, Curt Roehm.
“I think we’re going to do well this year. I hope we have a fun, competitive year. We have a lot of experienced seniors and talented underclassmen. So the competition to get a position on the varsity team should be really good. Hopefully with that competitive drive, we’ll be able to get a sectional title this year,” Roehm said.
Everyone on the team has a lot of faith in themselves this season, especially sophomore, Lydia Kittrell.
“We will hold our own in sectionals. I look forward to the competition, being with friends and just getting playing time,” Kittrell said. She added that the team will miss their previous assistant coach, Nathan Cross, “but I think we will be okay.”
Everyone is looking forward to a good season and the chance to claim the sectional title as their own.
