Waxahachie tennis headed to 6A postseason for first time

By Travis M. Smith | KBEC Sports

A stellar fall season has the Waxahachie tennis team headed to the 6A postseason for the first time in program history.

The Indians began the 7-6A season by winning the first two matches — a 15-4 home win against DeSoto and a 16-3 road victory against Cedar Hill — to improve to 5-0 on the season.

Following back-to-back losses to Mansfield Lake Ridge and Mansfield, Waxahachie bounced back with three consecutive wins to clinch a playoff berth.

The first victory came Sept. 17 on the road against Grand Prairie, 18-1.

Waxahachie then clinched a postseason berth with a 14-5 Senior Night victory at home against Mansfield Summit on Sept. 24. They then defeated South Grand Prairie, 15-4, to wrap up the regular season.

The victory improved the team’s overall record to 8-2 on the season and 5-2 in 7-6A, which placed the Tribe third in the final district standings.

Team captains for the 2019-20 season are Thaddeus Horton, Kaleigh Smith, Landri Kirk, Alexis Perez and Julian Garza.

UP NEXT

The Waxahachie tennis team will play a playoff warmup match at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 19 against North Forney. Details on the 6A area tennis tournament have not yet been set.
