As the season wrapped up, the Panthers began to reconcile their small team size and their practice style under coach Bill Smith. Even though the team struggled to recruit older players, the team dynamic ultimately panned out as the season went on. Their last game on Tuesday, April 12 was a nailbiter against Hillsdale High School and a satisfying end to the season according to the team, a diverse group of under and upperclassmen.
Although their time together as a team has come to an end, top players competed in the individual tournament on April 24th to 26th, including senior Cale Goodman and junior Evan Mahaffey.
“A good mental game is huge in tennis so I tried to improve that this year,” Mahaffey said. “We suffered some hard losses but we fought hard every time.”
