TRM tennis gearing up

BY MICHAEL FLOYD

The new TRM tennis courts are complete and head coach Terri Thompson is ready to start the season the best way possible.

“I have been impressed with what I have seen these first few weeks of practice. It is apparent these kids have done some work in the off season”  Coach Thompson stated. The Tigers will also have some new competition. “Our section has grown this year. St. Michaels and Elberta have been added. Cottage Hill also picked up a boys team (Bayside, Excel, St. Luke, Cottage Hill And TRM are returning)” said coach Thompson.

This year’s team will have experience and a sharp mindset. “I believe if we keep working hard, keep a positive mental game and consistently keep our opponents on their toes we will have a lot of success this season. Our senior players are Kennedy Harp, Bentley Webb, Lexy Qualls, Mary Grace Milligan and Noah Winton. They have all been apart of the program since middle school” says Coach  Thompson.  One thing for sure, the TRM tennis team is back and ready for action. Below is the Tigers full schedule.
