The Westside boys varsity tennis team played in the Monarch Invitational on Monday, Sept. 18. The Warriors placed third in a stacked field of 24 teams. Junior Ashton Rames and Owen Wahl played No.1 doubles. Rames shared how he thinks he played.

“My play was up and down, I started pretty rough, not moving my feet and not focused,” Rames said. “But as the tournament progressed I played better and better, ending up playing some pretty good tennis.”

Wahl and Rames started the day off with a 8-2 win over Norfolk. Then picking up their second win over Papio South with a score of 8-4. Wahl and Rames had a tough match against Lincoln East,where the score ended 2-8. 

Wahl explained how he thinks he played and what he is looking forward to for the rest of the season. 

“I thought I played pretty good,” Wahl said. “I am looking forward to the Westside Invite.” 

Rames shared what he thinks he could clean up and work on.

“Some things I could work on would be my slice serve and my jumping overhead,” Rames said. “Overall my game is pretty well rounded so there’s only little things that stick out and my main priority is elevating my overall level.”

Not many tournaments are left and the Metro Championships are coming up soon. Rames explained what he is looking forward to for the rest of the season.

“The rest of the season is a few duals, state and metros,” Rames said. “What I’m looking forward to is the duels, they’re always fun because everyone watches the last match and it’s a great time.”

The Warriors will host the Westside Invitational on Monday, Sept. 25.
