Brandon Tremaine, freshman, won his singles match 8-1, and is having a strong season thus far as a new addition to the team. “ I really enjoy being on the team so far, I had a great match today, felt confident, and had a really good time,” Tremaine said.

A new addition on the girls team, Constance Lampkin, freshman, won her singles match 8-4. While letting go of a few points, she was able to comeback and pull off the win. “ I started off the match by losing a few points, but I played hard and got those points back, I know I’ll do better the next time I play,” Lampkin said.

Terrence O’Neal, senior, and Diana Fernandez, sophomore, competed together in a mixed doubles match. The two won a nail biter, with a score of 8-8 and tiebreaker of 12-10. “ I was so nervous. Towards the end of the match, their was no room for mistakes, but I’m glad we pulled off the win,” O’Neal said.

The Lake Ridge Junior Varsity tennis team will be back in action next Thursday, Sept. 29, against Mansfield Legacy at the Lake Ridge tennis courts.
