The MHS varsity girls’ tennis team has been hard at work preparing for their season. However, with a new head coach a new season and a new team, the Buccaneers have some challenges ahead of them.

“This is a whole new squad,” said Head Coach Jacqueline Powers. “We don’t have a senior squad this year and this is everyone’s first year on the varsity team.” This is Jacqueline Powers first year as head coach. She is also a third grade teacher at the middle school and has been working for the district for three years.

“The team has been very enthusiastic this year,” Powers added.

Last year the Bucs had a rough season ending with a record of 4-11. This season has proven to be just as difficult. After facing some tough competitors such as Cesar Rodney, Dover, and Sussex Central, the Bucs have yet to come out with a win. On March 30, the Bucs suffered their fourth loss of the season against the Cape Henlopen Vikings with a final score of 0-5.

“It’s been a  challenging year, but it’s about learning the game,” said Powers. “I want the team to continue practicing and become consistent with their shots.”

However, the season is still early and after every game the team continues to improve on their performance. On April 3, the Buccaneers will head to Seaford High School where they will face off against the Blue Jays. The game will be held at Seaford High School at 4p.m.

“I think we stand a good chance against Seaford,” said Jessica Downes, who plays first single. “Our team just needs to improve on our technique and continue practicing.”

Last year the Buccaneers emerged victorious, defeating the Blue Jays with a final score of 4-1.

“Win or lose it’s always a great experience,” added second-double Vivian Alvarado.
