The team was coached this season by Clayton Dodd, Mike Blissard and Kellan Blissard and placed second in division with five members advancing to State.
Ezra Blissard placed second at State in 4A boy’s singles, while Walt Harrington and Chase Eldridge placed third in boy’s doubles and Hannah Welch and Lane Brandon placed third in mixed doubles.
Mike Blissard credited the team for their efforts this season and challenged the underclassmen to continue that success next year.
“The effects of losing seven starting seniors out of 12 possible starters will put pressure on the players that are left,” Blissard said. “The legacy left behind from the record-breaking team will require dedication to live up to but I think these kids now see that it can be done.”
