Coach's Report

Thank you to all the parents in attendance Thursday night.

Parents, Boosters, and fans- come on out to the CHS Tennis Center Friday morning at 8 am to cheer on the Cowboys as they square up with Waco Midway in the first round of the PW/HP team tourney! The second round will be played at 1 pm either at JP II (with 1st rd loss) or Coppell (with 1st rd win). Saturday we get rolling again at the same times. I will update locations after Friday (there are 4 different possibilities).

Don't forget that team pictures will be Wednesday-Thursday, September 4-5, 2019.

Court Report

The Varsity Team has already begun its season!! The Texas heat continues to oppress, but our players have valiantly soldiered on.

CHS v Southlake

This is always a tough match-up. Ultimately, we lost 6-13. However, the score doesn't really reflect the closeness of the day. 6 matches came down to third-set tiebreakers. We're hoping for a chance for vengeance at the Plano West Tournament this coming weekend.

Your Serve

Thanks so much to all those who volunteered their time in the last couple of weeks. We look forward to getting to know the rest of you soon!
