GRHS TENNIS OVERVIEW

Head Coach: Phillip Harder

2018 Results: Boys 9th at State, Girls 5th at State


COACH’S THOUGHTS

“The boys have done really well and hopefully this year we can keep the ball rolling. Our girls will be pretty new though. We graduated five of the eight girls. We have some really good junior varsity kids who are going to come up. For our boys we graduated four of the eight. The other four were young last year so we have a few years to see what they can do. It’s a young team for both the boys and the girls. We’ve had kids practicing all summer all on their own.

Caeden Grubb was our number one singles player last year. He’ll be a junior this year. He had a lot of learning opportunities last year. He’s definitely more balanced and ready this year.

Sydney Beutel played number two doubles last year. Her and her partner last year were state runner ups. She’s definitely a good player and I’m excited to see what she does.

I hope the kids come out and have fun. If they have fun and learn something, they become better human beings, then we’ve done our job.”

MY THOUGHTS

Green River tennis has been both consistent and successful for several years at the state tournament.

This year’s team brings up a lot of junior varsity players from last season who bring valuable experience at the varsity level. With half of the varsity team graduated, there will be some big shoes to fill.

This certainly isn’t the youngest team Green River has had under coach Harder and the Wolves should follow the trend they have set in previous years to finish within the top ten at the state tournament again this year.

The girls team specifically has placed in the top five the last two seasons and one would suspect that Beutel will take the lead on helping the Lady Wolves reach the top five once again. As for the boys, Caeden Grubb looks to be a reliable asset returning to the roster in 2019.
