“My favorite songs on the playlist are Sunset by A-Sho and Lucky Rose, and Cold Ain’t for me by Oceans,” said freshman Henry Choi.

After the complete cancellation of all spring sports in the 2019-20 season, the boy’s tennis team was excited to return to the court. Following a deep state-run in the 2018-19 season and an eventual close loss to Mounds Park Academy in the championship game, the team was ready to come back and show their true power. Since then, the team has lost several senior leaders and is now a much younger team, mainly composed of underclassmen. The team, already relatively deep into their season, holds a solid record of 5-2. Even after starting the season 0-2 against Eagan and Blake, the team had a complete rally and dominated in their next five.

As most teams do, the team created a Spotify playlist to warm up to before each game. The playlist consists of songs by authors like Shawn Mendes, Sam Feldt, and The Weeknd. Henry Choi, a freshman on the team, said, “All of the sons on the playlist have long build ups that lead to huge beat drops, which help the team get pumped up before a match.”

Hoping to continue their five-game win streak, the team will face off against Saint Thomas Academy at 4:30 p.m. on May 14.

A full version of the playlist is available to stream on Spotify.
