Fall preview 2001: Boys’ Tennis
The changing of the seasons often means cleaning house, getting rid of the old and welcoming the new. Varsity boys’ tennis coach Mo Adamski is doing just that, only this makeover was not entirely of her own accord.
All eight of the 2000 varsity team members will not be making repeat performances for the Wolverines this fall, opening the door for seven new players to hit the courts.
“Most of the boys have never played competitively before, so we are going to be working on basic skills, strategy and having a good time in the process,” said Adamski.
The accomplished tennis player and volunteer coach is not the least bit concerned about her young and inexperienced team or their chances in league play this season.
“All of the boys are so enthusiastic about the sport, and as freshmen they have lots of time to grow with the team,” Adamski added. “Competition and winning will come in time.”
The new team has been working out at Tahoe Donner Tennis Club with tennis pro Greg Cosgrove, as well as playing each other to establish a ladder of play for their first scrimmage event. Strong teams from Galena, Manogue and McQueen may pose a challenge to the inexperienced team, but Adamski welcomes the opportunity for growth within her young roster.
“The improvement over the last few weeks has been so great, and that makes me very excited to work with these boys,” Adamski said.
The small but spirited Wolverine team will taste their first offerings of competition today in a scrimmage against the Lakers before they travel to South Tahoe Sept. 4.
