Garner Middle School plays sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, and even golf. What some don’t know is we also have a tennis team. Garner’s tennis team has also beat most of it’s competition too.
The 7th and 8th grade tennis coach, Douglas Saam says that there next game is February 4th, Tuesday and they will be playing Krueger Middle school. He says, “His students are great and are improving everyday and they are a good group of kids, and we hope to have a great game.”
While there are many games to go until they can be entered in District Champions in March, they are still on a good run. Even though Garner has lost its tennis court due to construction, they haven’t given up and are practicing at MacArthur’s tennis court.
8th grade student Tyler Kuykendall says, “I feel that we are going to do good in our next game but practice is key, especially if we get to district champs because that’s when we the challenge is a lot higher. I do think that the 7th grade is really improving and it’s like we take them under our wings and teach them how to improve and play better.”
Hopefully, Garner can go to district champions to win Garner another trophy. Mr.Saam hopes to have a good game and hopes the rest will be a good season.
