Amazing news for our future lady tennis stars!!!!!!
Every Saturday morning throughout the year Coach Shepard (also known as the infamous Doherty High School’s Boy’s Tennis Coach) meets at the Doherty Tennis Courts at 10:00 AM!!!!!! 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!
I will send out the practice times and dates for preseason practices after I have spoken to Coach Shepard. I cannot believe that we are actually going to have a tennis season after our last season was lost to the virus!!
The above information explains exactly what you must do to be eligible for the season. You my attend Saturday play days without a physical exam required. Please get your physicals completed, your physical exams taken care of and all of your paperwork turned in so that you are ready for practice and competition!! If you have already turned in all of the requirements for another sport, you are all taken care of!!!!!
WOW!!! This is my first communication to our Spartan Ladies Tennis Team!!! Since March of 2020 we graduated fifteen young women that did not have the opportunity to play their Spartan senior year!!!! I missed celebrating their graduation ceremony with them and sincerely wish every one of them success in everything they do!!!! I hope that none of our 2021 Girl’s Tennis Players will have anything happen that interferes with a successful and enjoyable tennis season!!
