   Nothings stings worse than the pain of losing to a bitter rival. Losses are already hard enough to endure, but losing to an opponent with so much emotion involved is entirely different. And that is what the Lady Mustangs had to deal with this past week after being swept by Armijo, losing both matches of the year. Although Armijo is expected to bring a strong squad to the tennis court every year, these Rodriguez Ladies take no excuse and believe deep down that they are still the better team. They hope that this will shine throughout the season and into the postseason.

   One of our Lady Mustangs’ most important qualities is their ability to bounce back and never get too confident on wins or too low on losses. They once again proved this when they won their last match, quickly getting back into the win column and hoping to start a streak. The win was well earned and they are hoping to ride that win into their next match. 

   Although Coach Remy has been coaching the boys tennis team for many years, he now has tackled a new challenge of becoming a coach for the girls team following the retirement of Coach Wray. With Coach Remy in charge of the whole Rodriguez tennis program, this means that MEL banners and more wins can be earned in the near future. Of course, these changes come with challenges and unfamiliar difficulties. However, coach Remy believes he is ready to weather whatever storm comes his way. Coach Remy always says, “Always turn a negative situation into a positive one,” to keep his tennis girls ready for the future.

   Our Lady mustangs have put the unfortunate loss in the past and are ready for what is about to come! They all share the determination no matter what happens, which makes them ready for anything. Our tennis team will have nothing but winning scores in the future.
