The SJHS Girl’s Tennis team is off to a great start with a lot of great girls. This year, the SJHS Girl’s Tennis team tryouts were held on August 25. Girl’s Tennis will go until early October. According to Christy White, a seventh grader here at Springville Junior High, the practices are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and sometimes on Fridays. The matches are every Tuesday and Thursday. According to Mr. Dahl, a science teacher and the tennis coach, the practices go from 2:50-4:00.
Christy White said about Mr. Dahl, “He is really nice, and he pushes us hard to do our best.” According to Kelsey Sumsion, a seventh grader at SJHS, he is a great coach, and one of her favorite teachers.
According to Christy White, it is a great group of girls and they all get along really well. They do not judge each other, and their team is more important than winning. Mr. Dahl said, “This group is a lot of fun. It is awesome to see the girls improve from the beginning to the end of the season.”
Lydia Felix, a seventh grader at SJHS, said that she is on the tennis team because, “I love tennis; I’ve done it for three or four years.” According to Calli Egbert, an eighth grader at SJHS, she was on the team last year and really enjoyed it, so she decided to do it again. According to Christy White, she just started tennis this summer, but she really enjoys tennis more than other sports. She enjoys tennis because she is meeting new people and learning more about tennis.
