SS Net Improvements: Coach Lovett says tennis team has more overall talent this season

Sulphur Springs tennis coach James Lovett expects more wins this year due to a well-balanced 2010 tennis team.

“We don’t have the one or two outstanding players like we did last year, but we have more depth top to bottom,” Lovett said. “Last year we lost some matches 8-11 because we did not have enough players to win matches. This year, I think we can be the team winning 11-8, we are that good all the way through our team.”
