Schertz/Converse, Tx – Although Lehman entered the San Marcos Team Tennis Tournament with hopes of staying close to home, they ended up having to travel to Schertz Clemens and Converse Judson to play some hard-fought matches Thursday. The Lobos did not disappoint, losing to an over-matched Clemens team but beating a polished Judson team to move to 2-2 on the season.

The Lobos began the day in Schertz where they challenged a litany of strong tennis players whose experience proved too much for the Lobos to handle. Despite losing 10-0, many Lobos came off the courts proud of their play and with positive mindsets. The loss was definitely a learning experience for this young team and the match will ultimately prove to help their game in the future.

After a quick stop at Raising Cane’s for lunch, the refueled Lehman team traveled to Converse to face the Rockets of Judson. The Lobos got off to a quick start, winning 3 of 4 doubles matches before an hour-long rain delay. They returned from the delay winning another doubles match and all six Boys Singles matches. The Lobos took the win 10-2.

Due to the impending Hurricane Harvey, the second half of the tournament has been canceled. The Lobos were looking to become the winner of the consolation ladder.

The Lehman varsity tennis team travels to Seguin next Thursday to face the Matadors as they look to get above .500 for the first time this season.

MATCH OF THE DAY: Juniors Ana Heysquierdo and Angela Martinez lost to an experienced pair of Clemens girls 2-6, 0-6 Thursday morning. But the girls left the court believing they had played one of their best matches ever together. That confidence carried into the afternoon where they faced a similarly-skilled duo at Judson. Martinez’ confidence grew throughout the match as she attacked the net, gaining several volley winners in the process. Heysquierdo’s tenacity never wavered despite a few unforced errors. They never gave up and won both sets in a tiebreak 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (7-2). It’s hard enough closing out one tiebreaker, but these girls did it TWICE. Bravo ladies.
