After making it to the doubles teams quarterfinals at the district tournament last year, Lady Celts Delaney Engle and Alison McGregor started taking their tennis game more seriously. They started practicing year-round.

“We really tried to focus on being more consistent in our technique,” said McGregor.

“And the little things like ball placement,” added Engle.

The pair return to the court this season having added to their on-court repertoire and looking to improve on last year’s finish.

Mark Kohley, head coach of the McNary High School girls varsity tennis team, thinks the pairing is going to be a formidable force on the court this season.
