WHS tennis player advances

Whitney High School’s tennis players competed in the District 19-3A tournament in Groesbeck recently. The girls’ team placed second in district, with Liana Wottrich qualifying for regionals with second place in girls’ singles. Catherine Lee and Reanna Miller placed third in girls’ doubles. Noelia Delgado and Braden Deggs placed fourth in mixed doubles. Justin Lattin placed third in boys’ singles, making him a regional alternate. “The Whitney tennis team mixed into a tougher tennis district with two teams having tennis programs in the middle school. We have worked hard this season to compete,” said Coach Andrea Wimberly. “The new courts have been a blessing, and Whitney will host the district tournament next year.” Whitney has had a regional qualifier every year since 2006. Wottrich kept the record going, playing three full matches in one day. She never gave up and played a playback to hold on to second place, Wimberly said.
