REFUGIO – The boys tennis team won their 11th straight district title and the Lady Cats came in second.

The final day of competition at Aransas Pass was intense for the Bobcat Tennis Team.

The team knew what was needed to keep the winning streak alive.

With six of the eight courts being filled with members of the Bobcat tennis team, they were ready to do what needed to be done to uphold the tradition.

Seasoned veterans Ally Coscetti and Darrin Deleon started the day with a first place mixed doubles championship by defeating Goliad’s team of Maldonado and Gruetzmacher 6-3,6-4.

Joe Haley and Aimee Aranda took fourth place.

In girls singles, Raeven Barraza continued the first place momentum by defeating Goliad’s Briana Naranjo, 7-6, 1-6, 6-2, and Jessica Vasquez took fourth place.

All eyes were then turned to the boys doubles matches.

Tyler O’Donnell and Adrian Henderson were taking on the Edna team of Nidey and Newbern.

Having beaten this team once before, the Bobcats took nothing for granted.

With intensity and diligence they defeated Edna 6-4,6-2. On the adjacent court the doubles team of Oscar Nanez and Trevor Niemann took on the Aransas Pass team of Trevino and Gonzalez.

What may have been the most exciting match of the day, Nanez and Neimann defeated AP in a double tie breaker 7-6, 7-6, to bring the team closer to their seasons goal.

With the championship most likely in the teams’ grasp, they took no chances.

Darrion Cuellar was the final Bobcat on the court, taking on Hunter Green of Edna.

With a 6-4, 6-2 win and a third place in Boys Singles, Cuellar ensured another Bobcat Championship.

In the JV Division the small team of five fared extremely well.

In boys singles, Kenny Moore took third. In the girls doubles Natalie Ward and Halei Williams took first place, and Gina Allen and Krystal Garcia took third.
