Senior Night Information

Senior Night: Senior night will be held at the Sept. 12th home match against PT (last home dual match of season).  This year we will be recognizing seniors and their parents/ special family members in advance of the match.  So- senior parents/ special family members, if you are able to be there, please plan to get to the tennis courts at 4pm so we can get organized and do the senior recognition before the match.  The senior night introductions will begin at 4:15. We will also have pizza and cake for the players and celebrate the seniors after the match for those who are able to stay.

Looking forward to celebrating our seniors next week!

Successful Week for the Panthers!

Last week was a great week for NC Men’s Tennis!

We kicked off the week with a 5-0 victory over Center Grove. JV also won 7-1.

We then had a tough match against Guerin Catholic, winning 3-2. JV swept that match winning 8-0.

The week concluded with a pasta party (thank you, Becks!) and 2nd place in the Shirley Invitation. Congratulations to our doubles teams for both placing 1st! Special thanks to all of the parents and coaches for making that day run smoothly and keeping our boys fed.

We have a full week of matches before our long Labor Day weekend with matches away at HSE tomorrow, home against Kokomo on Wednesday, and away at Carmel on Thursday. No practice on Friday.
