The Big Spring Tennis Team won a hard-fought victory against the Snyder Tigers 10-6 last night at Figure 7 Tennis Center to advance to the Team Tennis playoffs. Big Spring will next play Wichita Falls Hirschi in Abilene on Tuesday at Rose Park Tennis Center.
Big Spring opened with a dominating performance in doubles, taking six of seven matches to jump to a 6-1 lead. Snyder proved a little better on the singles side on the night and came roaring back before Big Spring’s Nick Gomez clinched the 10th and deciding match.
“I was a little nervous going into the match. We had just lost one of our top boys to grades, so we had to move almost everyone up in the lineup and juggle the doubles teams a little bit. Before the match, the Snyder coach and I agreed this match would be a coin-flip.
I told our players that every match would count and every match was important. It turned out to be exactly right. They came through when they had to. I was very proud of our performance,” says Dana Jones, Coach for Big Spring ISD Tennis.
