We’ve almost taken for granted the continued excellence of the Highland Park tennis team, which is attempting to win its 16th state team title this fall.
But it would be a shame to overlook the significance of last week’s accomplishment, when the Scots wrapped up the District 10-6A title with a 19-0 win over Richardson. HP dominated the district, and became the first team at the school to clinch a league title at the 6A level.
The Scots will tune up for the postseason with a nondistrict match at Grapevine on Oct. 14. The district tournament will be Oct. 21-22 at Fair Oaks Tennis Center, followed by the regional tournament on Oct. 31 in Mansfield.
