Last year, junior Will Schellman qualified for state in boys’ tennis. Schellman was the only player to qualify for state after the tennis team came second in districts. Tennis season is here and his way back to state is starting now with his team’s help.

“I try to play matches with him pretty often,” sophomore and teammate Rayan Amir said. “It
helps him get more
match experience and it helps me playing against our number one.”

The team has rankings which would promote competition within the team and bettering each other. Last year, Schellman was ranked first on the tennis team, winning enough matches against the other schools first ranked player to make it to state.He’s considering playing doubles this year rather than singles, as he played singles last year.

Despite playing singles in the postseason last year, he wants to play doubles this year, like alumni Brendan Schmidt and Dev Patel.

“This year I’m working just as hard to make it back to state, training outside of practice,” said Schellman. “If I can play well in the regular season and keep a good record with high seeding, my path will be much easier.”

To make it back to state this year, he’s going to have to follow his trend from last year and better it to make it to state and go farther than last year, having lost in the first two rounds. Schellman and the tennis team have a long journey ahead of them, but hopefully a final destination at state.

“Our team this year is very strong and we have a really solid chance of making it to state as a team if we can stay healthy and committed,” said Schellman.
