The Maggie Walker men’s tennis team has found its stride again in 2016 after two consecutive state championship titles. Despite the absence of last year’s star player, Karl Katlaps (’17), in the first half of the season, Coach Jennifer Todd is confident that the current team is poised for success in the post-season.

“I have been really impressed with the team this year,” she said. “They have shown a lot of initiative and I am excited to see what they will do this season.”

Pierce Tarry (’17) has now taken the coveted number-one seed, and boasts a 5-2 record at his new position. Newcomer William Hobbs (’19) has clinched the number-two spot, making an impressive run by wearing down his opponents with his exhaustive style of play. Despite tough losses to local rivals Douglas Freeman and Deep Run High Schools, Maggie Walker has dominated in conference play with 9-0 victories over both Burton and Windsor, making a strong case for yet another championship run. “We simply can’t be stopped,” said sophomore Aditya Kannoth (’18).

Maggie Walker has also routed teams such as Glen Allen, Tucker, and Hermitage with a 6-2 record midway through the season.

“Our mentality is that if there’s a will, there’s a way,” said number-five seed Will Larson (’18). “I believe that we will win the state title again if we are willing to put in the work.”

“We’re really just one big family,” said number-three seed Nate Taminger (’18). “I don’t know what I’d do without them.”

The team will showcase their talent this coming Monday as they take on local rival Godwin. The match is 4:15 at Battery Park.

“It’s going to be a very exciting match,” captain Jack Miller (’16) promised.
