The Grapevine tennis team had a strong showing at its annual Mustang Invitational on March 1 and will have one more major tournament before district.Coach Angel Martinez said his team will head down to College Station on Thursday for the A&M Consolidated High School tournament, where it will face some of the stronger competition in the state.Martinez said this is just what the doctor ordered following spring break and prior to the district tournament.“This is probably a step up in terms of competition from our tournament,” Martinez said. “We'll face a lot of the Houston schools, and there are going to be some really good teams down there.“We just want to play well. Winning would be great, but you can win and not play well. We want them to play well and keep on progressing and peaking at the right time. So far, we have done just that.”Martinez said with spring break last week, he really hopes his players found a good balance between resting but also staying on the court.“Spring break comes at such an inopportune time from a coach’s perspective, because we are two and a half weeks away from the district tournament,” Martinez said. “We want to make sure that we don't lose everything we have put together, because you can lose it in a matter of weeks if you just sit there and don't do anything.”The home tournament was good to the Mustangs tennis squad, and Martinez said he had a number of strong showings from his players.“As a team, we took second place,” Martinez said. “It was a tough tournament, with some really good players and tough teams. We had some good results. I don't think we won any championships, but we were in quite a few finals.”Girls singles player Madison Cleff finished second in the tournament, the boys doubles team of Tine Valencic and Cody Humphrey finished second, Miha Valencic reached the finals, and the mixed doubles team of Samantha Martinez and Kord Flowers took third place at the tournament.Carroll won the Mustang Invitational, while Flower Mound Marcus finished third overall at the competition, which fielded 14 teams.
