One final “tune-up” remains — and, a doozy at that since it will be against last year’s state team tennis champs — before the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity tennis team can focus on region play.
The Class 3A regional team tennis tournament will, according to FHS Coach Randall King, pit the Billie netters against some of the state’s toughest teams on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2, in San Marcos.
But first, the local athletes will meet up with Abilene Wylie, the defending champions in 3A team tennis last year, when the sport still fell under the auspices of the Texas Tennis Coaches Association.
“Wylie is always a very talent and strong team,” King said. “Our kids seem to rise to the occasion and play them very tough each time out, though.”
On the heels of a 10-0 shut-out over Copperas Cove last Thursday in Llano, King said work will be done this week to prepare for both upcoming battles.
