The fall tennis season was a rollercoaster ride of triumphs and challenges for the Pleasanton team. The players gave their all in each match, and their passion for the sport was evident in every swing of the racquet. Despite finishing fourth in the district and facing a first-round exit in the playoffs, this season was not without its bright spots, thanks to a roster of standout players who showcased their skill and dedication. One of the most significant achievements of the season was district awards given to standout players who consistently delivered strong performances. Their dedication, scores, and sportsmanship were what set them apart to coaches within the district who vote on these awards

When asked about the close of the season Coach Everett said“ The odds were definitely stacked against us in playoffs but I was astonished by the amount of hustle each player gave. Although it is the end of our fall season, I know in the spring we will continue to do great things!” PHS is beyond proud of its tennis team and all of us here at PHS Journalism wish them well rest and good luck till spring season!
