Playing at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor tennis courts, Lampasas dominated Groesbeck on Tuesday in Belton, winning 18-1.
The Badgers and Lady Badgers won all seven doubles matches before cruising victory. The lone loss came in a tiebreaker.
Despite producing a one-sided win, Lampasas head coach Kenneth Peiser saw areas his players must improve on in order to be successful in District 8-3A competition.
“Some of the players are still working on becoming comfortable during a point,” he said. “When kids are in the moment, they have a hard time slowing down to see what is going on. They just run, hit and hope it goes in.”
Lampasas is 1-0 in district heading into Saturday’s home match against Brownwood, and, in the days leading up to the match, Peiser will attempt to alter his players’ mental approach.
“We are going to try to slow their minds down and see if they can think during points,” he said. “We will do this by using a less pressurized ball, which moves slower in the air, but still bounces like a real tennis ball.”
