Young Hudson High tennis team eager for post season play

June 1st, 2017

Hudson — With but one senior on the roster for the Hudson High School (HHS) girls’ varsity tennis team and an abundance of talent lost to graduation in 2016, this season could have been rather easily written off as a rebuilding campaign preparing the younger players a base for 2018.

Not so fast, say players and coaches. All that this squad of determined Hawks has done is to produce a robust 16-1 record that includes 11 straight victories before a 3-2 loss to top League contender Gardner High. The team is playoff-bound once again and ready to step into the spotlight of District Tournament competition and they’re doing it with unbridled zeal and determination.
