Girls Varsity Tennis
Wednesday's open practice on 8/14 is canceled and moved to Friday 8/16 instead, due to some schedule conflicts with the coaches. Friday's practice will be at the same time, 6-7:30 pm, same place, and will be our very last practice of the summer season. Should be a fun practice with lots of match play, rather than the skill developments we have been working on throughout the summer.
Summer is a great time for tennis and this summer WHS Girls Tennis will be holding optional open summer practices. Practices will be at the WHS tennis courts, every Wednesday from 6 - 7:30 pm, beginning 6/19/19 and running through 8/14/19 (EXCLUDING 7/31/19). These practices are for returning players, or ladies interested in trying out for the team next season. Practices will be focused on skill development/improvement and, of course, we will just have fun playing tennis. Practices are optional but encouraged. We hope to see you there!

Information about our districts trip –
Travel: We will be leaving Thursday 5/9 at 12:30 pm to travel to North Bend, the girls will get dismissed from school at 12:00 pm on this day. Some girls will be traveling with the coaches in the van, others will be driving with parents.
Hotel: We are staying overnight at the Quality Inn & Suites in North Bend with three parent chaperones. The coaches and WHS athletic director will also be staying there.
Food: We will provide team dinner on Thursday night and the hotel will have complimentary breakfast on Friday morning prior to districts. Girls should bring water bottles and snacks to eat throughout the trip and money to buy themselves dinner on Friday before we head home.
Districts: The district tournament is Friday 5/10 at North Bend High School, beginning at 9:00 am. We will play throughout the day and leave once all WHS ladies are finished. The times and opponents we will play will depend on the bracket layout and tournament directors. The bracket will be played through the quarter-finals. Any girls who make it to the semi-finals will come back to North Bend and play the remaining matches on Saturday 5/11 and will also be going to the state tournament the following week.
Return: After districts we will travel back to WHS, so girls will need transportation home from the school. There is no way to know what time we will be home, it will depend on how far WHS girls get in the tournament, but we will return some time in the evening on Friday 5/10.
Misc: There is limited seating at the tournament site, girls and spectators should bring chairs or blankets to sit on. The weather is looking great for the day, so don’t forget to bring sunscreen! Parents and spectators are welcome to attend the tournament if able, we love the extra support!
Looking forward to this trip, this tournament, and a great end to our season!
