The HCHS boys’ tennis varsity program has been a real positive force in the spring in recent seasons in Cometland, and there’s reason to believe there will be more good news this season. “Like every other sport over here, we have been hit hard in the early season with illness and bad weather. We have not had as much time on the court as we would like, but overall Coach (Brady) Taylor and I are pleased with what we have seen. We would have liked to have a few other players out, but the group we have is working hard. We have a great deal of experience on the team, and the seniors, as well as the other players, seem hungry to climb into the top 3 in the district this year,” said HCHS coach David Riddle.
