Seventeen players have come out to the courts

It might be that time of the year when kids want to stay cool and school work is the furthest from their minds. Several Taft High girls tennis players are doing the opposite as they get ready for the upcoming season with a little bit of summer practice.

According to coach Jim Carnal, 17 players have shown up to the two hour practice that goes from Monday through Thursdays and will last until July 17.

Once the summer practice comes to an end, the players will get a break before starting up the fall practice season Monday, Aug. 4. The fall schedule will begin Thursday, Aug. 21 when they travel to Tehachapi.
