Four Billies head to tennis regionals


After wrapping up district play last week, four Fredericksburg High School varsity players will be advancing to regionals at the H-E-B Tennis Center in Corpus Christi on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 18-19.

Hannah Boubel, Broque Constantine, Claire Maxcey and Martin Ball will be advancing.

Boubel finished first in girls’ singles for the fourth consecutive year. Constantine/Maxcey finished first in mixed doubles and Ball finished second in boys’ singles.

“We had a very good spring season.  We saw progress each and every week,” said FHS Varsity Tennis Coach Randall King. “We were hoping to qualify a few more kids to the regional tournament, but it is a tough district.  The kids played well and even those that came up short challenged teams or players that ended up qualifying for regionals.”

Ball qualified for regionals after coming up a few points short last spring.  Constantine was able to repeat as mixed doubles champion with a different partner in Maxcey.  Maxcey won girls doubles last year and will make her second trip to regionals.

District play for the varsity team took place on Monday and Tuesday, April 3-4.
