The Mercer County Boy’s tennis team looks to make a jump this season after working hard to get better at every aspect of the game this past offseason. Head Coach Gene Robertson believes this team has a chance to be special, and attributes that to all the time the kids and their parents have put in to make them better players on the court.
“We are really at the end of our rebuilding and we are now in a performing mode,” said Robertson. “Hopefully we will be getting a lot of wins this season.”
“It’s exciting to see young ones out there along with our veterans,” he added. “The program is rolling and I hope to really perform this year and the next couple of years.”
This team is spread out when it comes to age groups. Robertson has four seniors, four freshman, one 8th grader and three 7th graders. One aspect that Robertson is really excited about this year is that he has a veteran presence and with so many younger players, older guys on the team are needed to show the younger ones the ropes and to show them how to prepare for a match or practice.
