End of Season 2021

Hi everyone,

I decided to begin by telling you all how proud of everyone I am!!! To begin, it is very difficult to miss an entire year of competitions and practices and return to a team that is very different.  I am referring to the loss of 13 seniors that missed their last year of high school competitions.  I have never experienced beginning a season with only two seniors (Sana and Emily) that had very little if any varsity competitive experience!  Emily immediately took the responsibility of doing the introductions at all of our dual meets!!! For those of you that will be returning next year, your effort and amazing improvement this season will make next season a very different experience.  With the exception of a few of you, you had to accept the responsibility of playing All Varsity matches,  having only played at the Junior Varsity Level.  Junior Varsity, you have all improved and I am sure that you will be ready to challenge for the Varsity Positions next season!!Please take advantage of any opportunities you have over the summer to continue to improve your tennis skills!!!! We all look forward to a longer season with more practice time and hopefully many more new players to be able to have three levels next year (Varsity, JV, and C-squad)!!!

We are having our end of the season get together at Rizutos Ice Cream Shop!  I hope that I spelled this correctly. We will meet there at 3:00 PM on Monday, June 6th. I know that we will be missing at least one player that is already on vacation.  We hurried this get together because other players will be leaving soon for a well- deserved summer vacation.  Parents, you are encouraged to come if it is possible for you to join us.  I promise that next year will be a different year with a regular season and we can all look forward to a REAL banquet to celebrate these amazing young ladies. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.

Ladies, will you all remember to bring all parts of your uniform to the banquet.  If you have more than one uniform (a varsity and JV uniform) please bring them back.  This includes the blue long sleeved top.

The two t-shirts and the hoodies are yours to keep!

Just as a reminder, Brynn Reilly and Maggie Frye (two of my former players) have agreed to work with you every Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 7:30!! They will charge $10.00 each Wednesday.  They are both excellent tennis players with college experience.  Please join them.

You are also welcome to join Mr. Shepard on Saturday mornings to enjoy hitting with a variety of different adults and students at 10:00 AM.  Male Tennis players are always welcome!

Thank you to all of our supportive parents!! I know how important your support is to your daughters and I know that you realize how much effort they have put into this tennis season.

Thank you all, you are wonderful parents.

I think that I have covered everything!!  Thankyou toHi everyone!!

I have just a few reminders for you all!!

Finally it stopped raining and I hope that it warms up tomorrow!!!

The Varsity has practice tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 to 5:00.  I have not yet received information about our Regionals on Wednesday and Thursday but should have information by practice tomorrow. 

The JV is returning their uniforms tomorrow at the varsity practice. Please bring your uniform skirt and top and the long sleeve top!!!

Our regionals are on Wednesday, June 2 and June 3 @ Ken Caryl Ranch House, 7676 So. Continental Divide Rd., Littleton, CO.  We have not received the times but we are assuming 9:00 AM.   We will leave Doherty on the bus at 6:30 AM from the Doherty courts !!  Please bring sandwiches and some snacks to share.  I will bring a cooler for water. If you have a folding chair, bring that as well.  I have no idea how long tomorrow will last !!! Of course, bring your racket and a backup racket if you have one.

Two of my former, very talented young players have agreed to spend every Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at the Doherty courts with you.  Brynn Reilly and Maggie Frye, both former Doherty top players that graduated from Doherty 2 years ago and both played college tennis, have agreed to share their talents with you.  This will also assist them with a little extra money for their time.  They will charge $10 per night.  They are both excellent players and we recommend them highly!! I will let you know when they will begin.  Mrs. Leasure is sending this information out to other high school tennis players.  I would love for you to take advantage of this opportunity!!!

I will see you all tomorrow!! Please call me if you have any questions!!

Good Sunday morning to all of you!!!

WOW!!! It is amazing that it is already time for Tennis Regionals!!! We have managed to play 9 meets in four weeks AND we had no returning Varsity players from last year!!  We survived and I am so proud of all of you. Four of the teams that we competed against were complaining that they had only 6 returning varsity players. All of my complaints aside, thank goodness that we were able to HAVE a season and I was fortunate to have 23 anxious, delightful young ladies.

Thank you to our amazing parents that followed our girls to Pueblo and ALL of our home and away meets!!  I feel like we needed so much more time to get to know you and thank you for your remarkable daughters.  Fortunately, almost all of our ladies will return to us next year!!! 

For those of you that have completed your seasons, I must have your uniforms returned to me on Tuesday, or if you live near a Varsity player, you may make arrangements with her to bring your uniform on Tuesday to practice!! I must have your tops and skirts clean and ready to issue next year!!!!  Please wash all parts of your uniform (this year when we began to issue uniforms over 12 of the uniforms had not been laundered!!)  Seniors, please bring your uniforms in as soon as possible.  Bring them to the main office with my name on the bag!!!Remember you may keep your hoodies and both t-shirts already received.

Our schedule this week for the Varsity players is as follows:

Monday, May 31st.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY !!!!  A special thank you to those parents that have served or are currently serving in the Military.  As we celebrate Memorial Day, please remember those individuals that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

 There will be no practice on Monday, enjoy your day and the time with your families!!

Tuesday, June 1st.

We will have practice at Doherty from 3:00 PM to 5:15 PM for Varsity only on

Changes Schedule Tue & Wed, May 18 & 19

Good evening lady tennis players and parents!!!                  May 17,  10:35pm

Today at practice I received so many excuses why our players could not be at practice at 3:00 PM on Tuesday (many because they were attending graduation activities with the families of graduating seniors).   When I suggested practice tomorrow morning (Tuesday) the younger players’ indicated that parents work and could not get their daughters to practice at Doherty.  Therefore, there will be no practice on Tuesday.

 

For the meet on Wednesday, Palmer does not have a full squad and will only have 1, 2, and 3 singles and 1 doubles.  They do have 1 JV singles player.

  This means that Addison Leasure, Natalia Zolotic, and Sana Hamad will play the singles positions and Erin Bettner and Emily Tetrault will play #1 Doubles.  Taylor Pierce will play the one JV player!!

 

ALL OTHER PLAYERS WILL HAVE PRACTICE ON THE BACK COURTS ON WEDNESDAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER SCHOOL!!!  MY  APOLOGIES FOR ALL OF THE CHANGES!!!!!!

THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING!!! THIS IS PAR FOR THE COURSE THIS YEAR!!!!!!!!!

Schedule Change May 10, 2021

Good morning Tennis players and Coaches!!!

Changes in our schedule are occurring so fast that it is hard to get them out before they change again!!!

The weather for today’s practice does not look favorable BUT you must be at school to receive your uniforms.  Be upstairs by the Girl’s Locker room as soon after 3:00 PM as possible. More than likely we will not have practice, but if it miraculously clears up we could practice.  Let your parents know that you will probably going home right after uniform distribution!!!

#1 change – Tuesday’s VARSITY and JV Tennis Meets (May 11) against Rampart have been changed to Wednesday, May 12th.  The Varsity will play at Doherty and the JV will go to Rampart.  I have sent an early release for you to be excused at 2:00 PM to dress and go to your location. There will not be a bus going to Rampart and you will need to arrange your own rides.

The weather forecast for Tuesday is worse than today!!! I will wait until tomorrow to decide on Tuesday’s practice.  Look for any cancellations on the Dohertyathletics.org website.

Hopefully, after Tuesday the remainder of the week will clear up for our meet on Wednesday.

Thursday (May 13th) the Varsity will play Discovery Canyon @ Discovery Canyon.  The JV will play at home against Discovery Canyon. You will be excused at 2:00 PM.  There is no bus going to Discovery Canyon, you will need to arrange your own rides.

The JV will play their first tournament at the Air Force Academy on Friday, May 14th and Saturday May 15th I will send you the information about the tournament as soon as I receive it!!!!

The Varsity will practice on Friday, May 14 at Doherty after school!!

   I know how confusing these changes are!!!  I wish that I could control the weather!!!

Uniform Distribution Rescheduled!!

Good morning!!!

Changes!!!!Changes!!!!!

We will not be handing out uniforms on Wednesday!!!!!!  We need a place to try them on and the parking lot and inside cars does not work!!!

On Monday, May 10th we will meet up stairs in the girls locker room right after school to try on and hand out uniforms!!! We will then go to practice which we will end by 6:00.

 That gives us plenty of time to prepare for our Rampart meets scheduled on Tuesday, May 11th on the Dohertyathletics.org website.

The JV will travel to Rampart and you will need to provide your own transportation there.  I realize that many of you are not driving yet and will need to carpool will other players or parents if yours are not available.  Please arrange necessary rides now so that there is no confusion next Tuesday.  Coaches are not allowed to transport students in their cars.  Later in the season we have reserved the Doherty small bus to transport you to matches that are further away!!!

The line-up for the Varsity meet (at Doherty) and the JV meet (at Rampart) next Tuesday will be set at Monday’s practice!!

I am so sorry for the indecision and changes that are taking place!! I am so thankful for our coaches that have a great deal of patience and tennis knowledge!!! Right now, I do not have any patience left!!!! Hopefully, everything will settle down when we actually begin our season.  In the meantime, thank you parents for understanding all of the changes that have taken place.

I will see you all on Monday at practice and thank you for your patience as well!!!  Feel free to call me with any questions.  Please send me a text acknowledging that you received this!!!

He provides this opportunity for all levels of tennis players to have the chance to practice against players of all abilities.  This will give our future girl’s tennis players the chance to prepare for the upcoming season.  We expect for our girls to have a huge variety of tennis skills and this opportunity will be good for all levels. Bring your rackets every Saturday, make some new friends, have some fun and be ready for a short but wonderful chance to play some tennis this season.  FINALLY!!!!!!!  If you or your parents have any questions about this opportunity, please call me (Cheri Rogers at 440-4812).  I cannot wait to see you all!
