Mena Tennis Set to Play

BY LOGAN MCCOURTNEY –

The Mena Bearcat and Ladycat tennis teams are fast approaching their first matches of the year. Mena will host their first two matches of the season at McMillan Park August 24th and August 29th. The teams are practicing each day after school at McMillan Park preparing for their opponents. There are a good number of athletes out to compete this year, ten boys and four girls. “We did not have any seniors last year so everyone is back and we expect to compete better this year,” states Coach Thomas Powell. Last year the teams finished the season strong, especially in post season play, “We had a good showing in the district tournament and Zeb Wilson and Payton Medlin qualified for the State Tournament in doubles.” Mena is returning several players that should show promise for both the girls and boys teams, “Brynn Harvey and Robert Johnson are our top singles players and Zeb and Payton will be our top double players. On the girls side, Morgan Bowling and Haylee Castillo are the top girls double team and I think they will have a good year.”
