Last week the Varsity tennis team completed the Fall team tennis season. Team tennis involves 3 girls and 3 boys doubles matches, 6 boys and 6 girls singles matches, and one mixed doubles match; this is a school against school competition. The McCallum tennis team made the playoffs and advanced in the state tournament, the first time the team has done this in more than 10 years. By making the playoffs, advancing as bi-district champs, and competing in the area tournament in College Station, the McCallum Team is amongst the top 64 teams in the state of Texas. The team’s record for this season was 5 wins and 3 losses, and two of those losses were to teams ranked in the top 15 in the state. Lastly, Coach Purkiss and Coach Baughman announced the captains for the upcoming individual tennis season in the Spring. Captains this year are seniors: Jewel New, Bobbie Currie, Lily Christie, and Michael Alverson. Go MAC Tennis!!!!!!!
