Boys Varsity Tennis, Girls Varsity Tennis · Young Panther Tennis Squads Compete At Sectionals


imageThe 2015 Southside tennis teams competed at 2015 Class 7A, Section 8, tennis tournament, hosted by Albertville High School. After the girls tournament was rained out on Monday, the boys and girls tournament were combined on Tuesday. The rain held off, and the weather was tolerable. The Panthers matched skills with host Albertville, Cullman, Fort Payne, Arab, and Scottsboro. The Panthers exhibited the heart and determination they have shown all season. Although they came up short, the future looks bright. Why? The girls have 1 junior, 4 sophomores, 3 freshmen, and 1 seventh grader. Think that is impressive? The boys have 2 freshmen, 1 eighth grader, and 3 seventh graders! Should be fun watching them hit the small, fuzzy, yellow ball in the next few years. Team members for the girls are: Alysaa Herrera (11th), Ashton Downey (10th), Lacy Downey (10th), Morgan Ingram (10th), Lexi Pierce (10th), Mary Kat Barber (9th), Britney Barker (9th), Grace Raines (9th), and Saya Endoh (7th). Team members for the boys are: Trey Stone (9th), Luis Vazquez (9th), Hayden Davis (8th), Will Davis (7th), Hudson Hopper (7th), and Dylan Winningham (7th).
