SETTING UP THE SERVE: Last year, junior Sam Limcaco winds up to serve a killer ace against Bishop Chatard. He will be one of the returning varsity players for this upcoming season.

Another season of boys’ tennis is ready to commence.  After winning the 10th sectional title in the program, the tennis teams looks to build upon their victory in the upcoming season.

Due to a big graduating class, the tennis team will be without a senior class this season. They will have two of their returning varsity singles players junior Tyler Schofield and junior Sam Limcaco. Additionally, they will have a big junior class to replace the seniors.

The team continues to practice daily with a winning mentality and strong work ethic.

According to head coach Jim Stone, he is always looking for his players to improve everyday they step on the court.

“As coaches, we like for the players to have serious attitudes every day,” Stone said.

Limcaco had a similar response as Stone had involving the work ethic required for the season.

“We will have to work harder and train at a 100% this season,” Limcaco said.

Like most teams, tennis have already made goals they hope to accomplish. Sophomore Ty Ransburg, gives insight on the goals of the season.

“We want to beat FC and win sectionals that’s as good as it gets,” Ransburg said.

 The Rebel tennis teams looks to build upon a winning mentality this season.  The coaches and players continue to stress the need for a good attitude in the upcoming season.
