The Oak Ridge tennis team played their first spring tournament of the season on the 18th and 19th at the Tiger Winter Classic in College Station. Nine members of the team played in a spring varsity tournament for the first time.
Following Christmas break, the War Eagles had only three days without rain to practice and were shaking off the rust from the break in between the fall and spring seasons. Nonetheless, the team notched 30 wins in the tournament.
The girls’ doubles teams of Maddie Kelley (senior) & Amy Sharp (sophomore) and Carrie Munguia (junior) & Callie Roth (junior) notched three wins in the tournament. In girls’ singles, Jessica Lu (junior) and Chloe Waggoner (senior) notched three wins. Chloe Waggoner placed third in the tournament’s “B” bracket.
Notching their first spring season varsity wins were Sam Pangle (sophomore) & Alberto Silva (freshman) in boys’ singles and Ariel Caragea (junior) & Jenny Yozviak (sophomore) in girls’ doubles.
Dalton Dueitt (sophomore), Amy Sharp, Carrie Munguia, Diego Aramayo (senior) and Brenda Telles (senior) were members of doubles teams picking up their first ever spring season varsity win.
Along the way, the War Eagles picked up some key victories against district foe, Bryan.
Coach Justin Williams is optimistic about Oak Ridge spring tennis, “We play a very competitive spring tournament schedule and we look forward to a successful season to complement our fall return to the district playoffs.
