The Mustang boys clinched district titles in both singles and doubles to lead the effort.

“Our kids did a fantastic job preparing for this tournament and came away with excellent results,” said Minh Phan, Cypress Ranch tennis coach. “I couldn’t be happier with our young team’s performance and am looking forward to the regional tournament.”

The Lobo girls narrowly edged out runner-up Cypress Ranch to claim their third consecutive team title.

“All the girls have a team-first attitude,” said Stan McMillian, Langham Creek tennis coach. “This title was a priority for them, before individual accomplishments. With a half-point difference between first and second place, every member of the team contributed. I’m so proud of them and can’t wait to see how far both girls doubles teams can go at regionals.”
