Coronado’s men’s tennis team has just stamped themselves as a 4A powerhouse team in this year’s State Tournament. Coronado’s tennis team was incredibly successful this year having eleven players qualify for state along with having representation in each bracket. At one point this season was also ranked as high as 4th in the state for 4A.
Tomas Stuart was the team’s leader this year, with a 13-2 record in single’s matches. At state, he made it through the first round beating Mason Ramirez from Thompson Valley in just 2 sets. After his mass success in the first round, Tomas lost in a close match in the second round to Kent Denver’s Molden Hauer who ended up placing 2nd in the whole tournament.
This loss to a player who came top 2 allowed Tomas to enter a PlayBack bracket. Tomas ended up placing 5th in the state tournament as a junior. When asked about the tournament and the playback bracket Tomas said that, “The play back bracket was tough I ended getting placed against the #1 seed somehow and it was definitely a lot harder.” Tomas also elaborated on the state of the team with their returning players; “Next year I think we can make a run at state Although we are losing Ty, I think that with the success we had this year with players that are returning we will be fine.”
