The Lady Eagles’ tennis team is looking forward to a fun filled season.

Heading into her sixth year as head coach, Lori Dietz reported having 17 girls out for the tennis team. Dietz expressed her goal as a coach of this team:

“For the team to see success…whether their individual goals are to perfect their skills or to make it to state, I want them each to work hard to achieve their goals.”

Senior and previous state tennis performer Adrian Dietz told of the team’s goals:

“[We want] to find what our strengths are, and to find the best positions for each player to get the best team to state.”

In preparation for this season, Dietz added that they have been doing, “summer practices and a lot of scrimmaging.” Dietz also said that the thing that stands out the most about the team this year is, “How many are on the team….”

Dietz had these words of advice for the younger members of the team.

“Be determined and don’t limit yourself by what you think you can’t do.  Persevere through what might be difficult, and know that the more you practice, the better you’ll be.”
