Fort out steadied their opponents from Cane Bay in windy weather for their 2nd win of the season. Congrats to FDHS winners Winson Wang at #1 singles, Connor Westbrooke at #2 Singles and Will Carter at # 3 Singles. Also good wins at 1 doubles for Wang and Westbrooke as well as #2 doubles played by Prem Nathu and Daniel Clayborn.
At the start of the match we talked strategy about managing mistakes in tough conditions and stacked that strategy on top of prior strategies / lessons about how to start a match with momentum.
No player enjoys playing in the wind, but knowing it will be tough in advance and limiting negative self talk while giving more margin for errors is how to manage the wind to your advantage. While most players come un-glued in tough conditions and quit or get frustrated, coached players pull victories in tough weather and that is what we worked on for today’s win.
Fort has 2 more matches this week and is on a roll. Go Patriots! Attached pictures of Lance Johnson, Kevaughn Williams, Connor Westbrooke and Winson Wang
