The only reason Highland Park won’t be able to defend its Class 4A state team tennis title is because it’s no longer in 4A. Instead, the Scots will try to keep their legacy intact in the new 6A beginning this fall.
HP will start the season today with a 4 p.m. match at North Mesquite, and will play District 10-6A matches every Tuesday through September.
The Scots have won six consecutive 4A team titles and haven’t lost a dual match since 2007. This season, HP will play a full slate of district matches in addition to nondistrict contests against El Paso Coronado (Sept. 19), Southlake Carroll (Sept. 20), McKinney North (Sept. 26), Allen (Sept. 27), Plano West (Oct. 4), and Grapevine (Oct. 14).
The district tournament is set for Oct. 21-22 at Fair Oaks Tennis Center, with the state tournament on Nov. 5-6 in College Station.
