Coppell ready for showdown with Flower Mound, open district with win over Lewisville
Coppell’s tennis team kicked off the District 5-5A season in dominant fashion Tuesday securing an 18-1 victory over Lewisville.
The Cowboys lone loss came at No. 3 boys doubles, but the squad wasn’t threatened in any other match.
“(Lewisville head coach) Manuella (Rogers) is a good coach and has Lewisville moving in the right direction,” said Rich Foster, Coppell head coach. “I felt confident we would win, though, and I was pleased with how we performed. Our only loss kind of surprised me, but it was a team that hasn’t practiced at all together and they just weren’t in sync.”
The season is just two weeks old, but Coppell’s tennis team is already growing up quickly.Head coach Rich Foster has been impressed with the progress he has seen as the Cowboys continued their non-district slate last Friday and Saturday at the Highland Park/Plano West Fall Team Tournament.
After coming up short in their opener against Lubbock (10-6), Coppell bounced back with three consecutive wins to take first in the consolation bracket.In the main draw, Highland Park outlasted Plano West in the finals (10-3).
“Lubbock was a pretty good team,” said Rich Foster, Coppell head coach. “We lost a boys doubles match in a third-set tiebreaker and I think that kind of set the tone. We just let a few get away from us.”
The Cowboys picked up wins over Duncanville (10-3), Midland (10-1) and Plano Senior (10-6) in the finals.
“We really grew up as the day progressed,” Foster said. “If we would have played that first match the way we played our last match, I think we would have beaten Lubbock. It was much better.”
