The Centennial tennis team, the first Frisco ISD high school tennis team ever to qualify for the UIL state tournament, will play
in the Class 5A semifinals Wednesday (Oct. 26) on the campus of Texas A&M University.
Centennial will play San Antonio Alamo Heights at 11:30 a.m. on the intramural courts at Texas A&M. If the Titans win the semifinal match, they will play for the 5A state championship at 11:30 a.m. Thursday. The other 5A state semifinal matches Amarillo
against Austin Liberal Arts and Science Academy.
Centennial earned a spot in the state tournament with a gripping 10-9 victory over Wakeland in the 5A Region 2 championship Friday. Centennial and Wakeland were two of the incredible total of nine FISD teams that qualified for the playoffs. The other
5A qualifiers were Frisco, Independence, Heritage, Lebanon Trail, Lone Star and Reedy, while Panther Creek qualified for the 4A playoffs in its first year of competition.
Playing in three districts in the new UIL athletics alignment, FISD tennis teams claimed every playoff opportunity available to them. Reedy was the District 9-5A champion and Centennial was the District 10-5A champion.
Tickets for the UIL state tennis tournament are $15 per day and $25 for a two-day tournament pass. Tickets must be purchased online.
Congratulations to all the FISD tennis teams for a great season and good luck to Centennial at the state tournament. Go Titans!
