Scots Heading Back to State in Tennis

Highland Park will be in a familiar position as the favorite for the Class 5A team tennis tournament next week in College Station.

Highland Park is returning to defend its crown at the UIL state team tennis tournament — and looking to cap a second straight perfect season in the process.

The Scots, who are undefeated this season, clinched the Class 5A Region II title on Friday with a 10-2 win over District 15-5A rival Lovejoy in Allen. Earlier in the regional tournament, they defeated Mount Pleasant, Frisco Reedy, Frisco Liberty, and Mansfield Lake Ridge without dropping a match.

The state semifinals are slated for Nov. 1 in College Station, with the finals the next day. HP has qualified for the fall state tournament in 30 consecutive years, and has won 17 championships, including last year.
