Kendra Burleyson, Reporter

Sadie Dearing, Remington Jackson, and Julia Musacchio traveled to Austin to  play in the state tennis tournament on May 17, 2019.

Sadie and Remington competed in doubles and played a great game and just fell short of winning against Brock. The duo lost by a score of 6-1 while Brock’s was 6-3. Coach Irons was very proud of the duo, stating “I can’t even express how proud I am of them,” Irons said. “They fought so hard, and it’s something they worked for since Day 1. Looking back to their freshman year, we never thought we’d be in this situation senior year. They have accomplished more than anyone at Ponder has as far as tennis goes, and it was a great run for them.” Despite this loss, this match will always be remembered by the duo and high school that got them there.

Julia played singles and faced Brock, the reigning state champ in the first round. She played a good match against Brock but lost. She played great and had a great year representing Ponder High School well.
