Alliance Tennis: North Platte Invite
The Alliance Bulldogs Tennis team traveled to the North Platte invite on Monday. Yes, finally some play time. Head coach Kathy Brock commented,  “It was a great day for tennis.  I’m really impressed with my number 2 doubles Taylor and Diana.  They haven’t played in a real match this season and they placed 4th at this Invite.” 
 
According to Brock, the girls still have a lot to work on which we knew we would as we have only had two days of practice outside.  For the most part they were getting acquainted with the game again and getting use to the long matches.  Maddie held on strong for her games.  She’s in a tough spot playing number 1 singles but I think she will do just fine there. These girls always put their heart into the game.  They try hard and work hard.  Elise Stoike had a bad day.  As noted by Brock, “I don’t think she felt prepared enough like everyone else.”
 
We are just focusing on moving forward now and practicing harder at practice.  Looking forward to our Senior night against Gering and Bluffs this Thursday.
