MCKINNEY — Tennis season has ended for Prosper High School. The Eagles batted a tough Frisco Reedy team, but couldn’t pull out a win against the Lions in the Bi-District matchup on Tuesday, Oct. 17.

“We had a lot of close matches and great points,” said head tennis coach Mandy Bowling. “I am so very proud of (the team), and we had a great season!”

The Eagles secured a second-place finish in District 14-5A last week with their 19-0 win over Lake Dallas. Athletic Director Valerie Little was at the match against Reedy, and was encouraged by Prosper’s performance.

“It was promising to see the perseverance from them on each court,” she said. “We made great strides and the progress over the fall season.”

Though the 2017 season is over, Bowling has learned a lot in her first season as Prosper’s head tennis coach. Little commended Bowling on her development in just a few short months.

“(Bowling) has done a great job of raising the intensity in practices,” Little said. “Jan Brown did a great job here, and we don’t want to take anything away from her legacy, but Coach Bowling is taking practice to a whole new level.”

Bowling says her team will take a little break before returning to the courts to prepare for the spring season. They will pick back up with practices in January.

“We should be able to build on the success from the fall and have an even better spring season,” Little said.
