Liberty Ranch tennis had an extremely successful season garnering the league championship with an impressive 10-0 record. They faced West Campus in the playoffs and were eliminated 3 wins to 6 losses when the afternoon was over.

Head Coach Hunter Franklin was excited for the league championship and hoping for a better outcome in the playoffs.

“The team is unfortunately done,” said Franklin. “We were unfortunately short a high-ranking player, which caused the rest of the team to move around. Almost half of our team was playing with new partners, and there is a certain chemistry that you don’t have when playing with a new partner. That being said, there were plenty of close matches that could have gone both ways, and the team overall played excellent. I am very proud of what the team accomplished this season and am looking forward to our next season.”
