The Kaufman tennis team won the Class 5A Region 2 area championship after beating out Jacksonville last week.
The teams had played many of the same opponents, including Whitehouse who defeated Jacksonville in their district championship but lost to the Lions in a close 11-8 match.
“Going into the match [with Jacksonville], the team knew that Jacksonville would be tough based on common opponent scores,” head coach Michael Lott said. “But Kaufman represented themselves in prime fashion by dominating in doubles.”
The Lions swept all seven doubles matches; Eli Frosch and Jackie Rodriguez were the first ones to deliver a win for the team followed by Yadira and Emily Rodriguez. The team continued the effort into singles and quickly sealed their victory at 10-0, finishing at 17-2 overall.
