The team has been preparing all year for the spring season, training at local clubs and also playing in tournaments all over Iowa.

 “We are definitely much stronger this year, a lot of the girls have had a lot more experience playing matches,” said Lucy Wagner ’17. “And since we have no graduating seniors from last year we have a really solid team.”

 Wagner, a sophomore at Regina, will transfer over to City High next fall.

 The team has returning seniors Kit Finley and Eve Small. Small has been runner up for two years at state and looks to capture the elusive title.

 “Of course I want to win state, it is a big goal,” said Small. “But I am going to try my best and be a player who walks on the court with their integrity.”

 The Little Hawks look to get more accolades by being consistent and having a positive attitude.

 “Consistency, it is just a game of errors, it’s about who is going to make the first error,” said Small.

 Susanna Gianola ‘16 also added to the mindset factor of tennis.

 “Be in the moment. Just thinking about right now, not about the score or how you did in the last point,” Gianola said.

 The Little Hawks have their first match on Thursday, April 9th at Cedar Rapids Prairie.
