Tiger Tennis Updates April 10-17, 2021

  • Practice Schedule for Week Two (April 12-16):

    Everyone who turned out for practice during spring break (and qualified for match play) will practice from 2:30-4:00, Monday-Friday, April 12-16.  Everyone else will practice from 4:00-5:30, Monday-Friday.   We have 2 home matches this week on Tuesday and Thursday, so be prepared to cheer on your team.

    Matches:

    Tuesday, 4/13, at Hart Field (home) vs. Mt. Spokane

    Thursday, 4/15 at Hart Field (home) vs. Central Valley

    All ladies who attended practice during spring break will play in both matches, in addition to the following 4 players who showed up for preseason practices:  Lauren S, Elissa C, Lin K, Eleanor P.

    Team Gear:

    LC Tiger Tennis gear is available for purchase at Momentumink.com.  You may order from both the “Lewis and Clark Men’s Tennis” and the “Lewis and Clark Women’s Tennis” e-stores. (The men’s site has more choices, but the women’s site has women’s sizing-specific designs).  The design on the front of all the shirts will be what is shown on the men’s tennis site (Momentum hasn’t had time to update our e-store.) Orders must be placed by Tuesday evening, April 13th.

    Team Uniforms:

    Team jackets and uniforms will be handed out to all players on Monday, April 12.  Varsity (currently those qualified to play on week one) will be issued a team dress, so girls will need solid black lycra shorts to go underneath the dress.  JV will need to wear solid black shorts, skirt, or leggings with pockets.   It is a requirement that players be able to hold one ball in their shorts or skirt, so please be sure you have pockets or liners that will hold a ball in place. (Players must have 2 balls before they start serving a point).

    Varsity/JV Lineup and Practices:

    Currently, we have 27 ladies signed up on FamilyID.  Varsity is 10 spots (4 singles and 3 doubles).  We will play challenge matches on Wednesday and Friday of this week to finish determining the ladder.  Starting on Monday, April 19th, we will split the practice times according to the ladder.  After week two, practice will be 2:30-4:00 for varsity and top jv, 4:00-5:30 for jv. 

    Mask Update:

    Masks must be worn at all times when athletes are not actively playing.  During singles play, masks can be removed.  During doubles play, masks are allowed to be lowered for short periods.  Because doubles partners will be on the same side of the court, periodically within 6-12 feet of each other, we’ll need to continue wearing the masks to avoid full team quarantine, should anyone test positive for Covid.
