The UIL state tennis tournament is next Monday and Tuesday, and it will feature a lot of local players. The schools with multiple qualifiers are not surprises: Highland Park, Southlake Carroll, McKinney North and Grapevine. And then there's Hillcrest, and yeah, that's a surprise. The Dallas ISD has had only five state qualifiers in tennis in the last 33 years, and two of those are from the same school this year.
I'll have more on that story later this week. For now, here are the local qualifiers.
