The OHS Boys tennis season is off to a snowy start this year. The team’s first three meets have been cancelled due to the cold weather and snow, so the team has been continuing their practices indoors at the West Hills facility. Head coach Curt Matejcek said, “The challenge so far this season has been the weather. I would like all of our players continue to work on their form and conditioning, I would also like for them to focus on the mental aspect of their game. Overall I am very proud of the team for keeping their composure and working hard in practice.” The team is eager to get outside and compete. Overall, the boys are working hard in practice and are looking forward to a great season.

The team had their first match of the season on Wednesday, April 13 in Mankato. The team is 1-0 overall with their first win over Mankato West. Senior captain Ben Denio said, “We have a great group of guys this year, and I’m honored to be a leader and friends with them. The entire team has been working hard in practices and is very anxious to get outside and compete in meets. With a couple meets already cancelled, the season will fly by, especially for the seniors.” Last Saturday Owatonna was hit hard with more snow limiting the Huskies to inside play. The Huskies next match is scheduled for Saturday, April 21 at 9:00 a.m. in Owatonna – weather permitting.
