Highest Coppell Finish Ever in Tough Midland Tournament...
February 21, 2015 - The Coppell Varsity Tennis Team traveled to Midland this weekend, for the Annual Tall City Invitational.This tournament is one of the most prestigious and competitive events in the state each year, touting such state contending teams as El Paso Coronado, Lubbock Coronado, Southlake, and of course, your Coppell Cowboys, plus many others.
The tournament configuration is designed to not only allow for advancement to individual championships in each of singles, doubles, and mixed doubles, but also has a team competition component based on performance by teams, which rewards teams with depth in all events at each position, including boys and girls divisions.
The Coppell program shined in this event more than ever previously, finishing in the top 3 for the first time ever, by means of a 2nd Place Team finish.Each Cowboy player had a role in the success, as points were earned in every match based on results.The Cowboys had four entrants reach the Semi-Finals in their respective events, with two of those reaching the finals.
In Singles, Doris Hoyas and Justin Chen advanced to the semi-finals before falling to highly ranked opponents.Melissa Coburn won her Semi-Final singles match, advancing to the Girls Final.In the Championship Final, Melissa played a tough match against an opponent that had not lost a single game in the tournament - until Melissa won games and gave her better competition than she had seen the entire weekend.
The Boys Doubles team of Xixao Li and Sid Bagaria had a good weekend also, advancing to the Boys Final after a very tough Semi-Final match against a Duncanville team that had defeated them in the fall team season.They then had an even tougher match in the Final, falling to one of the top doubles team in the state, from El Paso Coronado.
It was a very tough but successful tournament for the Cowboys, helping in preparation for upcoming District play, hopefully followed by Regional action thereafter.
Way to go Cowboys!
