Hard work pays off.
San Marcos will send a girls’ doubles team to the Region IV, Class 5A Tennis Tournament after Sarah Ybarra and Ali Herington placed second at the district meet. Ybarra and Herington took two girls from New Braunfels to the limit before falling 7-5, 6-4.
“I’m extremely proud of these two, as they worked hard all year,” San Marcos head coach Jack Hughes said. “Their reward is a trip to the regional tournament.”
Although Ybarra and Herington were the only two players to earn the right to represent the Rattlers in San Antonio, all of San Marcos’ players fared well. Every Rattler reached the quarterfinals and when the points were tallied, San Marcos took second place overall.
