The tennis team, about eight matches into its season, is diving into competition for 2017. As a team, it’s experienced wins, losses, and ties. But tennis is more complicated than just a win or loss.

Tennis players defeated Kuna and Mountain View, but many individual wins have taken place as well–the girls team defeated Nampa, Meridian, and Centennial.

Sophomore Paytin Snowball has participated in several sports, including basketball and volleyball, but she enjoys the independent competition that tennis offers.

“It’s a team sport but you’re not really playing as a team,” Snowball said. “You’re playing by yourself. So having that one other person there… I like it better.”

For sophomore Carson Bird, one of his expectations for the season is being able to play a travel tournament. He wants to play teams that Borah doesn’t usually get to compete against.

“There are a couple but we’re not sure when,” Bird said. “That might be this year or next year because we kind of had a busy game schedule this year.”

Bird said another his goal was for the team would be to win the majority of their matches. “That’s my expectation, we wanna win,” he said.

Both Snowball and Bird agree that this tennis season ran very well.

The coaches work with the players during practices and even on weekends. There are two assistant coaches along with a main coach, this allows each player to get more individual help.

Although the team has experienced a lot of success this season, Snowball also mentions that tennis may not be getting the support other sports teams are receiving. Despite this, the team still has aspirations to compete with other teams and win as well. Bird believes the competition at Borah continues to increase and opportunities are opening up for the team even more.
