The Devine tennis team continued to dominate the courts beating the Bulldogs 17-2 last Saturday, August 19.
“Our players continue to work hard and improve their skills. I have asked each of them to write down their goals for each week, for the season, and for the year. I have asked them to focus on these goals throughout the year to improve their personal game. My goal this year is to help my team have a tougher mental game, hoping it will help us stay focused and win the close matches. Our team t-shirt says ‘Never throw in the towel, use it to wipe off the sweat and keep going’. This is what we all should strive for,” stated Coach Melanie Sostarich.
Their next matches will be Saturday, August 26th, in La Vernia.
