Nine advance out of district tennis

By Lisa Treiber-Walter

A “rare” feat has been accomplished by the Fredericksburg High School (FHS) varsity tennis team for a second time in as many years.

A total of nine Billie netters have emerged fresh out of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) District 27-3A Tennis Tournament as qualifiers for the regional meet later this month.

“It was a great job by the kids across the board,” said FHS Coach Randall King, whose squad accounted for three division title wins, as well as a second-place finish, two third-place takes and more when the regular-season ender pitted six schools in battle for the league’s top spots on local courts here Thursday through Saturday, March 27-29.

“We built accordingly for this tourney and our players saw marked improvement from Day One,” King said.

Tee off will be at 9 a.m. daily for the girls, who will be playing holes at the Buckhorn Golf Course in Comfort, and for the boys, who will be walking the greens at the Flying L Golf Course in Bandera.
