As usual, Frisco ISD features some of the best tennis players and teams in the state.
What is unusual this season is the amount of FISD teams that will qualify for the playoffs.
That’s one of the big positives of the new University Interscholastic League athletic alignment, which splits FISD high schools into three districts for all sports. Tennis is a great example of how the new UIL alignment, which is in effect for the
2022-23 and 2023-24 school years, helps FISD in its goal to maximize opportunities for students.
Last year, although six District teams were ranked among the top 15 teams in the state in Class 5A, only four of those tennis teams qualified for the playoffs because all 10 FISD high school teams were in the same UIL district. This year, a whopping
seven FISD tennis teams were ranked among the top 15 in the state in 5A as the season started.
Fortunately, as many as nine FISD tennis teams could now qualify for the playoffs.
There’s a good chance, in fact, that nine FISD tennis teams will make the playoffs this year. Four teams from each UIL district advance to the postseason, and it looks like FISD teams will fill all the available playoff spots – four in 9-5A,
four in 10-5A and one from 10-4A (in which Panther Creek is the only FISD school).
You can keep up with how the FISD tennis teams are doing on the District Standings page.
