COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – The UIL state team tennis championships begin at Texas A&M tomorrow and A&M Consolidated has qualified for the event for a fourth straight season.
They credit major improvement from the beginning of the year to where they are now as the main reason they're one of four Class 5A teams in the state still playing.
Senior Hannah Tindall said, "We didn't really think we were going to make it this year at the beginning. We looked at our team and were like well this is the year we're not going to make it. Our team came together and we persevered and we all got better together. Our team bonded and we made it."
Hannah's younger brother Joey, a sophomore, added. "I'm really excited we could make it and I'm glad that we could put up the fight that we did and take care of business and get here again for the fourth year."
The Tigers will face unbeaten Highland Park in the semifinals Wednesday at 11:30.
Highland Park has won state titles in 8 of the past 9 years.
