Today we had a tennis match with Wilcox, and Homestead won 7 to 0. We are now 7 - 3 in league, and 8 - 3 overall.
It was a cold and windy day for tennis, but everyone made the necessary adjustments in keeping the ball in play and playing smart tennis.

Exhibition matches - Knall/Colbeth of Homestead defeated Wilcox 6-2,7-5.
Homestead players - Pham 4,Kavak 0.
Special standouts of course was our #1 Singles player Ben Low. Who kept his opponent in a defensive mode, and hit laser shots to the corners for winners. Also, Byron Lee and Steven Pham really stepped up their game by dominating the net, and hitting some nice service returns.
The exhibition match of Erik Knall / Jordan Colbeth against the Wilcox doubles team was the last to finish of the evening in a hard hitting victory. Way to go !
Overall, the players executed what we've been working on in practice this past week very well, and it was a solid team effort by everyone. A sweet win to end the week. Congrats !
Thank-you Homestead Tennis players !!
