State Champs!: Plano West hoists tennis title No. 6 after downing Lake Travis

The third time was indeed the charm for the Plano West tennis team.

After coming up one win short of a Class 6A state championship the past two seasons, incurring runner-up finishes at the hands of Houston Memorial and Round Rock Westwood, the Wolves reclaimed their spot on top Friday at Texas A&M University. 

What had the makings of a special postseason from the onset culminated in decisive fashion as West defeated Austin Lake Travis, 10-3, in the 6A state final to capture the sixth UIL championship in program history.

“Each one of that I’ve been a part of feels a little different. This was very gratifying, the way the team pulled together over the course of the year and just refused to go down,” said Morgen Walker, West head coach. “Seeing kids battle for matches, games and sets, it was a lot of fun. Just the sheer competitiveness of the kids showed up this year, especially these last couple of weeks.” FULL STORY AT PLANO STAR COURIER
