Eagle Tennis has been rolling through their tournaments as one of the top teams in the district.

The tennis team has been led by senior Michael Rigsby, who will try to compete for a state championship this year.

Michael has been playing tennis since middle school, and has been on varsity all four years of his high school career.

“Growing up, I wasn’t really good at the other sports,” Michael said. “And I thought that I would try something new.”

Michael has found the sport that he is confident competing in and has a competitive drive that helps him compete in tennis.

“Overall, I am a very competitive person,” Michael said. “I want to do my best in everything I do.”

Head tennis coach Tobi Jordan has worked with Michael for the past two years to develop his skill and competitive spirit.

“She [Coach Jordan] pushes me and gives me that drive to keep competing and doing my best,” Michael said.

Michaels favorite part of tennis is doubles with his partner sophomore Zoey Zablosky.

“When playing you have a good relationship and that’s good for winning,” Michael said.

Tennis takes dedication on the court. A drill that Michael Rigsby likes to play is called “sky ball”.

“You got to be able to put in the time,” Michael said. “You got just get out there repeatedly.”

Michael will be attending University of Texas at Austin to obtain a degree in Economics or Government. Michael will be competing intramural in tennis.
