Victory is ours!!!

Earlier this week, the varsity tennis team captured the district title.

After last week’s hard loss to Tyler Lee 9-10, Rockwall went on to crush Garland 10-0.

RHS was ranked as the No. 2 seeded team going into the district playoffs.

Up first, the Jackets defeated North Garland and Sacshe, earning a spot in the championship.

In the final battle, the Jackets were able to defend their home courts, getting revenge on Tyler Lee and capturing the district title with a score of 11-8.

Next up for the Jackets is the area playoffs, which will be held in Waco on Oct 22-23.

“We did just what Dr. Gober asked us to do this season,” Coach Fulkerson said. “He asked for District Champions and (today) we became the District Champs.”
