Mexico head coach Tony Senor says “This was a great match for our Seniors to go out on. Declan and Zeven started during the 2020 season and they did not get to play that season due to the pandemic. Jackson came to us last year after playing golf for the boys team for two years. All three will be missed because of their good attitude, leadership skills, and talent on the courts. We wish them luck in where they go next. We had a very good performance as a team and we picking up steam going into the NCMC Tournament and District Tournament next week. Have to stay focused and finish strong.”
