The Wills Point Tiger tennis team finishes its fall season as one of the top eight teams in the state. P

The Tiger tennis team finished its fall season by placing second in the Regional Tournament held in Grapevine Oct. 27-28.

Coach Ann Daniell stated, "Only one team from the Regional Tournament advances to the State Tournament. We couldn't be more proud of our kids. We didn't play our best in the finals but our kids played hard. Senior Maddie Baker had one amazing tournament. She is our only player that did not lose a match in District, at Area and at Regionals. She won the match to win our nail biter against Center to make it to the finals!"
