Coppell tennis hosts Tyler Legacy at the CHS Tennis Center tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Following a loss against Marcus on Tuesday , 10-9, and against Plano West on Aug. 31, 16-3, the Coppell tennis team has hopes to bounce back. 

“We’re pretty confident as a team, and hopefully this will be a redemption game for districts,” Coppell senior Jasmine Durant said. “I know I need to work on broad serves, volleys and wide [shots]. I’ll be focusing on [those skills] before the game while I warm up.” 

The team defeated Tyler Legacy to open the 2020-21 season.

 “Even though it’s not a district match it’s still important to play confidently and take every point seriously. They’re a really good team as well and as long as we stay focused we’ll make it through all of our matches,” Coppell senior Gaby Tian said. “Our team picks themselves up after each match, they know that as long as they do their best, it’s alright. We look forward to every match because playing on this team is an opportunity, 

While there are uncertainties when it comes to the tournament, Tian and Durant are confident with their strong lineup.

“Best case scenario we win. Worst case scenario we lose to a team that we know that we could’ve beat,” Durant said.
