Plano West Senior High School Captures State UIL Class 6A Tennis Championship

November 15, 2016

Congratulation to the Plano West Senior High School tennis team - the UIL Class 6A State Champions! Coached by Head Coach Morgen Walker and Assistant Coach Mike Bischoff, this outstanding group of young athletes won the state championship on November 2 - 3 at Texas A&M University in College Station in a tiebreaker that clinched the title. The team was recognized for their accomplishment by the Plano ISD Board of Trustees at the November 15 Board meeting.

"The team has one goal - to win state titles. The standards and expectations for this team are very high. Over the 18 years Plano West has been open, the previous teams set those standards. Each successive team strives to reach them and maintain expectations. When you set your goals that high, you better be willing to put in the time and effort to achieve them. There are always bumps in the road, no matter the year. How you decide to handle those goes a long way to determining whether or not your goals can be reached. With five state championships in 18 years, I’d say we are doing okay," said Coach Walker.
