Sarah Teves captured second place in singles competition at the District 17-5A tennis tournament Wednesday and Thursday, April 4 and 5, at Corsicana.
Teves won in a play-back match that lasted almost three hours.
“Each point was almost 20 shots long with lots of ups and downs throughout,” said head coach Patrick Howard. “She was tired in the end but had a big smile on her face as she came off the court victorious. It was a great day for her, her family and our school.”
Teves advanced to the Region III Tournament at the Blythe Calfee Tennis Center in Willis Wednesday and Thursday, April 19 and 20.
Colton Turner placed fourth in singles action. He lost his bid for third place in a close match.
“He told me this was as far as he had ever gotten and had always played mixed [doubles],” Howard said. “What a year for him.”
Howard praised the Whitehouse tennis players for a successful season.
“All the kids performed above expectations and really showed that they have worked to improve this year,” Howard said.
Howard considered the 2018 season as a building year and that the district competition is among the best in the state.
