Hard work, belief, and trust are three necessary aspects of a comeback story. On Apr 27, the boys’ tennis team took on Eagan, a talented tennis program. The Spartans had momentum going into the game, with high aspirations for what wouldn’t be an easy feat. “We were undefeated, so we knew it would be an important and challenging match,” senior Alex Moore said.
Prior to the final two matches, things weren’t looking hopeful. “We trailed 2-3 meaning we needed to win 2 straight matches in order to clinch a well-earned victory,” sophomore Baasit Mahmood said.
After a hard-fought win to tie up the score, the team had to muster up hope finishing the last match. In the second set, Moore and eighth grader Allan Wang felt the weight of the team as they trailed 2-4 in the final set after an incredible comeback in the second set. Despite the slim odds of achieving yet another comeback, the duo battled with grit.
Their hard work didn’t go to waste, as they managed to overcome 3 match points. “It was pretty amazing to take the final point, especially because we had the entire team and parents there cheering us as I made the last shot,” Moore said.
