Although Legend’s girl’s tennis team has only been around for five years, they have slowly worked their way up to become a formidable opponent in Douglas County. With a new coach and a strong varsity lineup, this team is gearing up to become unstoppable.
Coach Craig Marshall went from an assistant coach to the head coach of the team in a single summer. Team manager junior Mitch Swim stated that “Coach Marshall is one of the most positive guys I’ve ever met, and his strategy for the season is going to have a good outcome.”
Coach Ben Wolf is also a new addition to the program. Junior Karlie DeBerard believes that “he has a completely different coaching style that’s helping the team.”
DeBerard is optimistic about the upcoming season. “I think we’re going to do a lot better than last season because we’re working together as a team and we’ve already improved so much,” she said.
Despite losing their tennis veterans to the graduating class of 2013, the team is ready to face a new season with vigor. “We have a lot of JV players from last year who are going to step up and be on Varsity this season,” said Swim.
The girls are really good at “holding each other accountable,” said DeBerard of the team’s strengths. They hope to get to state and have a winning record this season.
These Legend Titans are ready to play. They’ve come to the court to win this season. They’re “stronger, better, and faster,” than ever before said DeBerard.
