Casual dating means you can always be on the lookout for someone new, so that if or when things fizzle with one of your current guys you have a list of new potential dates to choose from. It gets easier with practice, and the worst he can say is no.
Lucy Lesueur attacks the ball during a recent Alta girls tennis match.
Lesueur is one of eight seniors on the team this season, making Alta one of the most seasoned teams in the region. By Ron Bevan [ protected].
Sporting teams like to talk about being a family, of being a close-knit group. Team members like to say they have known each other forever and have a tight bond.
Seven of the eight have been with the program four straight years. The seniors are part of the reason Rice returned to coaching Alta.
All but Callister have been on the Alta roster since ninth grade. Callister ed last season as a junior after moving into the area from California. The seniors have taken a sort of a leadership mantel on their shoulders. Being such a large group of classmates means they have younger eyes watching them.
Most helpful girls
This means they can set a tone that the others follow. To that end, the seniors long ago instituted a conduct policy they follow.
Instead we communicate. It is nice to be able to communicate and not have any problems from it.
Everybody is so different but we are able to come together and still perform together so well. When discussing the different types of personalities on the team, Rice quickly mentioned Wright, who does a charitable function away from the courts.
Having eight seniors means at least one will not play varsity at every match. There are only seven spots available on the varsity roster, three singles players and two doubles teams.
And there are underclassmen vying for spots on the varsity as well. In fact, the first match of the season had six of the seniors on varsity and one junior.
But the team is still in a growing period to see where players will fit the best. Currently, Russell le off as the No. Russell was also the No. She played doubles as a sophomore and made it to the final match at state that season.
It is really nice because she helps lead practices and gives advice to the girls while also being coachable herself. Seniors Dowdell and Anthony make up the No. Rice likes the pairing of Dowdell and Anthony, in part because of the different strengths they bring.
Dowdell is high energy and Anthony has a maturity for her age. Plus Dowdell is left handed while Anthony plays right handed, so they can cover the court well.
Lesueur is holding down the No. Bingham returns to doubles play, holding on to the No. Last year, Callister was her partner. Callister has moved to singles play. While Rice is the head coach, Lori Sperry is helping her as her assistant coach.
Sperry is the boys coach at Alta in the spring. Rice is confident, however, the team can make a run for the region title.
