All is well over on the War Eagle tennis courts as everyone is making contributions.

See you Tuesday at 3:30pm for the Conroe match. These athletes could use your support. Wouldn’t it be fun to see just half as many fans at a tennis match as you see at a volleyball match? C’mon now, let’s get over and do a little screaming for these awesome athletes.

Oh, make sure and yell in between points as etiquette frowns on giving an opposing player the business when serving.
