The Coppell Tennis program had already had a pretty good week, but the Varsity Cowboys made it a great week when they took down defending State Champion Grapevine in a tight and exciting dual on Friday night in Grapevine.
With the score knotted at 9-9 and the final match on court, the Cowboy players who had delivered the first nine victories provided tremendous support to their teammate to bring home that deciding 10th win.
The victory was the Varsity's sixth straight, and coupled with a 17-2 win earlier in the week over Lake Highlands, the Cowboys are now 6-1 overall and undefeated in districy play at 2-0.
Coppell has another busy week ahead, as they look to stay in first place in district when they take on W.T. White on Tuesday at Fair Oaks, and then face a tough Allen Eagle squad Friday in Allen. There will be no time for a breather, as the Cowboys will then hit the road directly, when they travel from Allen to Longview on Friday for the annual Quad Tournament against Longview and Texas High, to be played starting early Saturday morning.
Not to be completely outdone by their Varsity brethren, the Cowboy JV brought home another 19-0 district win over Lake Highlands to bring their overall record to 3-0, and 2-0 in district. The JV has captured both district wins by taking 38 straight individual matches.
