Iriarte Starts First Year As Tennis Coach

Staff Report

In his first season as head coach, Milford High foreign language teacher Matius Iriarte said his goals for the varsity boys’ tennis team are not solely set on winning while on the court. He also will focus on the way the boys act academically.
The start of the season approaches quickly with the first match set for March 22 at Caesar Rodney. Coach Iriarte said his players are preparing diligently.

“The team is improving and giving forth their best efforts,” he said.

While this 2012 marks his first season at MHS, Coach Iriarte is not new to coaching. He coached rugby at John Hopkins University and also coached a tennis team in Baltimore. He has played tennis, but not competitively, in Argentina, his native country. This will be his first year coaching a varsity high school tennis team.

“I like the group of kids I have,” said Coach Iriarte. “They’re good kids.”

The Buccaneers look to improve after ending their previous season placing fourth in the Henlopen Conference Championship.

“Coach Iriarte is a good coach,” said sophomore A.J. Legree. “His intentions will be beneficial for us.”

The team seems to enjoy Coach Iriarte, and this bond between the players and the coach should bring them together for success.
