In mixed doubles, the junior team of Matthew Hoelscher/Madison Pollok defeated Victoria West’s Keller/Najman 7-5, 2-6, 6-0 in the final and were district champions. After a close first-set win, Hoelscher/Pollok lost the second set but regrouped and found their form in the third set that had led them to three first-place wins in the regular season.

In boys doubles, the junior team of Sean Reinertson/James Wayne made its way to the finals where they faced Gregory-Portland’s Katz/Davidson. After a long-fought battle, Floresville lost 6-0, 6-4 and were district finalists.

In girls singles, senior Brittany Aikens was seeded first at the tournament, advanced to the finals, and defeated Beeville’s Cori Moore 6-3, 6-3 to become district champion. Aikens was previously the district’s girls singles finalist last year.

Finally, in boys singles, sophomore Enrique Garcia placed third by defeating Port Lavaca Calhoun’s Christian Tuazon 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(8).

Other members of the team who competed in the district tournament included the juniors mixed doubles team of Sheldon Snyder/Shelby Carpenter, who lost to Beeville’s Reyna/Barris 7-5, 6-1.

Boys singles sophomore Julian Gonzales won his first-round match against Victoria East’s Collin Janecka 6-1, 6-1 but lost to Beeville’s Eric Dehnert 6-0, 6-1 in the quarterfinals.

The senior/junior duo of Blake LaRue/Giordi Carrillo defeated Port Lavaca Calhoun’s Yeh/Yeh 7-6(2), 3-6, 6-3 in the first round and Beeville’s Lucio/Barrera 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals, but lost to Gregory-Portland’s Katz/Davidson 6-1, 6-0 in the semifinals, and to Gregory-Portland’s Deaton/Havelka 6-3, 6-3 in the tournament’s playback match.
