Devine Team Tennis beats Knippa and Eagle Pass

Devine Team Tennis is 6-0 for the season, 1-0 in district. They were able to defeat the Knippa Rockcrunchers 14-5 and Eagle Pass Winn 9-2.

Devine Team Tennis played quite well considering not being able to get out on the courts in over a week.  The recent rainy weather forced them to practice in the Middle School gym, working on their net game and agility.  Saturday morning started with 19 matches against Knippa.  Devine played some great matches winning 14 and only losing 5.  They ended the day with a 9-2 victory over Eagle Pass Winn.  Awesome job!
Team Tennis shares a lot of kids with band.  After they finished playing Knippa the band kids left in order to attend a marching contest in Fredericksburg.  “I am so proud of the band kids for wanting to come and play the morning matches before traveling to Fredericksburg.  They are truly devoted to the team.  Thank you parents for transferring them back in time to march,” said Coach Sostarich.
After lunch, the remaining nine team members paired up to play 4 doubles matches and 7 singles matches against Eagle Pass Winn.  Even though they were not playing with their usual partners, Devine won all 4 doubles matches and then won all but 2 singles matches.  It was a long but very productive day on the courts!  Most of the team played four matches, helping them prepare for the remainder of their district matches.  Looking forward to the remaining two district matches at the Devine Tennis Courts.  Please go support our tennis team.  Oct 4th they play Pleasanton at 4:30 and Oct 9th Beeville at 4:30.
