Destination: Districts

With the success of the Boys Tennis team, Bob Carter is still on the job.

The Cowboys compete in the Southwest Ohio District, which is comprised of four sections: Cinti, Mason (where Wyoming competes), Dayton, and Troy. Across these four sections, there are roughly 130 singles players, and 100 doubles players each vying for 1 of 16 highly coveted spots in the district tournament (that is, 16 spots for singles, and 16 spots for doubles at districts). So, earning one of these limited spots is a BIG deal!

The team played a tough schedule this season, and that high level of competition really paid off as three teams/players qualified for districts - which is one of the best showings for the Cowboys in many years: Chris Murray (singles), Nolan Morley/Kieren Thomas (doubles), and Myles Bourbon/Will Carter (doubles).

On this past Saturday (5/16) these players competed in the seeding competition which is used to determine the line-up at districts. Nolan and Kieren ended up as one of the 4th seeds, Chris Murray as one of the 3rd seeds, and Myles and Will as one of the 1st seeds (as they won the Mason sectionals tournament, after beating two different teams from Seven Hills).

Next up: district play on Weds (5/20) at Centerville High School. The stress and the stakes keep going up as the players each play up to two elimination matches that day (i.e. one loss and done). GOOD LUCK to all of the Wyoming competitors at the upcoming match play!

Stay tuned for updates and pictures from districts.
