Netters make all-district

After enjoying one of their best fall tennis seasons in Lamesa High School history, the Golden Tornadoes are well-represented on the all-District 4-4A Tennis Team selected Thursday. After reaching the Class 4A state playoffs, the Golden Tornadoes won a tennis playoff match for what’s thought to be the first time in 30 years. Golden Tor senior Karmello Reyes made first-team all-district at number one boys singles after going 7-1 against District 4-4A’s topseeded boys. “The only match ‘Mello lost all fall was to Shallowater, and ‘Mello was feeling sick that day,” Coach Jose Lucio said. Reyes has been a regional qualifier in boys singles the past two seasons. Lucio believes Reyes will be playing college tennis after this season’s over. “’Mello lives and breathes tennis. He’s got a good, hard serve, probably in the 105 to 110 (miles per hour) range, and he’s got a great forehand which helps him put the ball in the most difficult spots,” Lucio said. Reyes and partner Victor Murillo earned second-team all-district in boys doubles after going 5-2 against 4-4A’s top boys doubles’ teams. “These two guys might be the strongest boys doubles team in our district next spring,” Lucio said.
