The boys’ tennis team began their conference season with early wins against Wheeling, Rolling Meadows, and Buffalo Grove but they are hungry for more as they take on Elk Grove tonight, May 5.
The team is very young and seniors like Ryan Weiler have stepped up to lead the team in practice and also helping them keep their nerves together in their matches such as the Hersey invite this past weekend.
“[I just] keep everyone calm and relaxed and not let the pressure get to [them],” Weiler said.
In practice, the Knights are working a lot on team chemistry and hand signals in doubles to ensure that the players will be on the same page in matches. In singles, the team has worked on staying consistent and being able to take their opponents deep into points.
According to Weiler a big goal for the team is to stay undefeated in the conference in order to get a good seed in the conference tournament May 14 through May 16. The young team has been able to mature and get better quickly according to Weiler and they hope each player can continue to improve.
“Just seeing everyone improve rapidly, since the season started is really cool,” Weiler said.
