Every sport requires teamwork and a good connection between the players and that is exactly what both girls and boys tennis has. Although both teams may have a special bond with each other in completely different ways, they both perform to the best of their abilities.

The biggest part of the boys team bondage is teasing each other. Some of the players believe they are going to be number one this year so they have a friendly competition, on and off court.

Sophomore Davin Ludwig said, “I got a new racket…still gonna beat everyone’s butt,”

Yet Cole McClure believes that he is going to be number one this season.“The racket doesn’t make the player, the person makes the player,” said McClure continuing on, “I’m gonna be number one, just like I have been, I don’t know what Davin is talking about.”

While both players are smack talking to be the best, senior Slade Yeager is in the middle end.

“I’m the friendly guy, they’re the ones who have problems,” Yeager said with a smile on his face.

But it all comes back to them at the banquet at the end of the year. Coach Lennox turns the tables by making the annual banquet into a roasting fest.

Yeager said laughing, “he keeps a mental safe in his brain, and anything we say, he’ll keep that up there until the banquet comes, and then he’ll remind us all of it and makes us feel uncomfortable.”

So as far as the boys team goes with smash talk and competition, the girls keep an upbeat attitude whenever they are together.

Junior Talia Schrader said, “[our personalities] help because when we play doubles we have a good connection with each other and we can trust each other.”

Another player, junior Abby Plowman said, “we try and help each other and build each other up.”

Both teams’ personalities are different, but they all work together to reach their goal of doing better and pushing to succeed farther than they did last year.
