GRHS tennis team dominates


September 6, 2017

The Green River High School tennis team continues to be a dominant force, sweeping matches in Rock Springs and winning all but one in Rawlins.

“We played well,” head coach Phil Harder said.

Despite dominating both their opposing teams during the weekend, Harder said there’s always room to improve, saying both the coaching staff and the players themselves know where they should focus during practices and games.

“The kids set goals for themselves everyday,” Harder said.

With the regional tournament coming up, Harder believes the team has a good chance if the group is able to keep their momentum in the upcoming contests. A good performance at regionals will translate to good seeding at the state tournament later on.
