Luther Tennis juggles different schedule to keep season going strong
ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT)–Athletic schedules have to be creative in a pandemic.
We’ve seen that in football, with teams like Onalaska and Tomah having games cancelled on them last minute.
But that’s not a unique issue to football, as athletic directors across the Coulee Region have had to get creative to make sure their kids can play, and Luther Tennis is no different.
A year after making their first state tournament appearance, the team is seeing around 14 fewer matches at this time in the year compared to a normal year.
That’s just because it’s gotten more difficult to find opponents during the pandemic.
The good news is there is a post season, so the hopes are that the Knights can make their second straight tournament appearance.
Coach Ross says that the makeshift schedule may be a headache, but the stress is worth it.
“The kids have put in a lot of time, you got a group of seniors who have been playing for a lot of years and for them to miss the season would have been very disappointing.”
