The defending state champion tennis Rocks (2019), under head coach Chris Mather, advanced two doubles teams to the Region semifinal round.  The two pairs also qualified for the KHSAA state tournament, to be held at the University of Kentucky.  The qualifying pairs were Dustin Garrison/Niki Jones and Dane Boggess/Matthew Chou. Dustin, a senior, answered a few questions about his tennis career at Trinity.

Q: When did you first start playing tennis?

A: I started playing when I was around nine or 10 because that is when my dad started playing, and he thought my brother and I would really enjoy the sport.

Q: With COVID restrictions, how did you think this season would go?

A: (I figured we would) have a shortened schedule with no travelling out of state or overnight — along with separated practice for JV and varsity.

Q: How have you improved over the years?

A: I have gotten more conditioned, along with my tennis skills getting better at Trinity practices.

Q: Would you recommend tennis to an incoming freshman?

A: Yes, even if they have no experience with tennis, they still should (try out) because it is a good group of people to be around and fun going to the matches.
