“He’s really improved from last year. I see the younger players learning from him and drawing from his enthusiasm all the time,” Davis said.

Fans in attendance to the Highland Tech match saw outstanding potential during Polk’s doubles matches. Sweeping the Highland Tech doubles teams were teams made up of the four aforementioned players, and an additional team consisting of Tyler Oxtoby and Jan Engelbrecht. Although not enough to overcome the deficit from singles play, seeing teammates working together helped ease the 6-3 loss for both the team and coach.

“As long as they play their best, and show improvement, we’ll have a great year,” Davis said before congratulating the Highland Tech players.

The tennis team’s next match is March 18 at Mt. Heritage. Their next home match is March 26 against Thomas Jefferson.
