While adding the new Falcon Stadium, the construction team had to move the tennis courts. Thus far, the team has resurfaced five of the courts and the other five are still in process.

According to assistant athletic director Emily Steinmetz, the boys tennis team has practiced on the five available courts and the home games have been played on those courts.

Steinmetz also mentioned that the gym classes have been practicing outside as a part of their classes.

The bleachers for tennis reside outside along the sidewalk but once the rest of the courts are finished then the bleachers will be moved in between the two sets of courts, Steinmetz says.

Senior David Seals says he is disappointed that the boys team won’t be able to play on the entire court. He explains that, in theory, the courts should only take a month to be finished but the project is still ongoing a month and a half after the stadium was completed.

“It’s just frustrating that it’s my senior year and I’m not going to be able to play on the new courts” says Seals.

The girls plan to use the courts once tennis restarts in the spring as well. The project is still ongoing and the ending date is still uncertain, says Steinmetz.
