Coach T's comments (4/13): Sorry all you tennis fans who were hoping to see some pictures. I do have some results, just no pictures. My next scheduled photo session will be Tuesday the 18th (work permitting).
Coach T's comments (4/14): After starting out the season winning 62 of their first 78 matches (79.5 winning percentage) Parchment went 1-7 (12.5 winning percentage) in their first dual meet of the year. PHS dropped every division except 3rd singles where M.M. capture the lone W 7-5, 6-3. PHS was without an entrant at the 2 singles position against Class C Grand Rapids North Pointe Christian. This drops PHS's overall winning percentage to 73.3% (63-23).
Coach T's comments (4/15): I wasn't there but I was told by one of the doubles players who participated in the Traverse City dual meet that PHS lost all 8 divisions dropping their overall record to 63-31. I'm sure the TC coach couldn't have been too happy given the length of their drive to get to Parchment.
Coach T's comments (4/18): I saw a couple doubles matches on Saturday but that was it for me. PHS came away with 6th place out of a field of 13 teams. Kenny made his first appearance of the year teaming up with Frank to take Parchment's lone 1st place. PHS also took home a Bronze in 4 singles, thanks to some hard work by the mighty freshman phenom Casey. Two thumbs (or is that 3 thumbs) up for these performances!

On a tennis related note here's a picture of my "first place" certificate from the "international" tennis tournament I won while vacationing in Mexico. And trust me it definitely was an international victory as Americans were a minority in the tournament, even though it did end up being an "all American" final! USA! USA! USA!
A Championís Creed...
