Bronco Tennis Results

Another week of tennis, another tournament positively destroyed by the Denton Bronco JV Tennis team. Since taking second place as a team last week wasn’t good enough, they decided to rack up some more hardware this week and take 1st place in the Eaton High School tournament. This time, we took home medals in every single category. A special shoutout to Whitney Fink, Annie Mayfield, Hudson Shuck, and Sam Taliaferro for have an all DHS mixed doubles finals for the second tournament in a row.

Boys Singles
Collin Renfro, 2nd main
Kolt Bundy, 1st consolation
Sam Johnston, 2nd consolation

Girls Singles
Zoe Hutton, 3rd main
Miku Ando, 2nd consolation

Boys Doubles
Evan Eshelman and Ever Gregorio 2nd main
Kyler Bullard and Matthew Ko 1st consolation

Girls Doubles
Tina Tsoi and Carrie Shi 1st consolation

Mixed Doubles
Sam Taliaferro and Annie Mayfield 1st main
Hudson Shuck and Whitney Fink 2nd main
Adrian Cortes and Leanna Wells, 2nd consolation

Varsity also fought hard, though I must say their level of competition is much higher. At every turn, our players were taken out of contention by the same team we lost to in District in the Fall; Aledo. However, winning in a tight tiebreaker against the Aledo team, Jocey Guzman and Xochitl Salazar took revenge for the broncos and took 1st place consolation in Girls Doubles as well.

Congratulations, Broncos.

New Tennis District for Broncos

The move of classifications from 4A to 5A for the Broncos was simply because the U.I.L. create a new 6A division.  However with the move also came district realignment.  Gone from the Denton High School district are Guyer, Nelson and Lake Dallas, however unlike the other sports at DHS there are no new schools in the tennis district.  The result is that there are only 5 schools in the tennis district this season, Denton, Azle, Brewer, Rider and Wichita Falls High.  The new season starts for the Bronco Netters on August 20th. District 5-5A play begins September 16th versus Rider.
