PCHS Miners Tennis Team heads to state tournament
PARK CITY, Utah — The Boys Tennis team from Park City High School is on a two-time winning streak as it heads into the final stages of their snowy spring season.
The end of April saw the team with a win of 3-2 over Olympus High School at home in Park City, and another win over of 3-2 over East High School at their home in Salt Lake City. Miners Senior Kaj Christiansen had standout performances in both those competitions, one winning in straight sets.
Not always able to practice and/or play due to inclement weather, the Miners are turning their year around now that the snow is melting on and around their tennis facilities.
The long-held partnership between the City and the School has been a win win.
Park City Municipal’s Recreation Director Ken Fisher told TownLift, “The PC MARC and the Racquet Club have always been the home for the PCHS Tennis. The team is made up of players that have progressed through our youth tennis programs. They use our facility both for practices and matches. Our professional tennis staff takes great pride in the success of the team as they have coached the players for many years.”
The team is coached by Justin DeLong and Tamarin Espinoza.
The recent Region Six tournament found falter in the Miners’ momentum at Cottonwood Heights since their short streak.
They’re gearing up to play next on Thursday and again on Saturday at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City in the Utah High School State Tournament.
