Mother Nature shows no love to OHS tennis

After three days of battling heat and rain, the girls tennis team was finally able to take to the courts Thursday, Aug. 28 against Lindbergh.

But not for long.

Halfway through the match, preemptive lightning strikes forced the Lindbergh school district to call off the match. Despite all of the bad luck Coach Bill Ebert remains optimistic for the rest of the season.

“We are going to improve,” Ebert said. “The girls are putting in a lot of effort and it will pay off once the weather cooperates.”

Assistant coach Kevin Green also said that although they are a primarily young team, the girls are learning quickly with the help of the returning players and seniors.

The girls tennis team lost to Webster today in their 4:15 match and will play at Lafayette on Thursday, Sept. 4 at 4:15.
