Rookies Start Strong

At New Caney's Annual Beginner's Tournament, those new to the Mustang Tennis Teams get a chance to see what tournament play is all about. This year, our players got off to a great start, taking 4th place in B Girls Doubles (Rosangel Aguilar and Yareisi Rogel), 3rd place in Mixed Doubles (Frederick Pickrom and Jazmon deRouselle), and 2nd place in Mixed Doubles (Mauro Wer and Jennifer Lopez). Great job Mustangs!

 

District Play Ends at Summer Creek

The Varsity Mustangs ended Team Tennis season at Summer Creek HS on October 10. The matches were extremely close, with 5 ending in Super Tie Breaker third sets. When play was suspended due to darkness, the Bulldogs had pulled off a heartbreaking win and the Mustangs closed their season with a 6-10 loss. Congratulations to the many players who won their hard-fought matches! We now look forward to more practice during this short break before the start of Spring Tennis in January.

 

GCM Visits NS

It was a tough night on October 3 - Goose Creek Memorial came ready to play, and their lineup's experience definitely showed. Two rookie Varsity Mustangs (Sophomores Jocelyn Alaniz and Casandra Leal) won their singles matches late in the match to keep GCM from a shutout, but it was not enough for our Mustangs to pull off the win. Next week we face Summer Creek HS in our last district match of the Team Tennis season. Thank you to all the parents, teachers, and students who have come out to support us this fall!

 

Varsity Topples Channelview

The NS Varsity Mustangs faced off against Channelview HS at NSSH on September 26. Channelview has a young team, and the Mustangs easily defeated them 19-0. Congratulations to all the players on their wins this week! Varsity now prepares for a pivotal match against Goose Creek Memorial HS next Tuesday at home. Please come out and support the Mustangs!

 

Mustangs Face Reigning District Champs

On September 19, the Varsity Mustangs travelled to Summer Creek HS to take on Kingwood HS in a "Battle of the Mustangs". KHS was District 21-6A's District Team Tennis champion last year, so NS knew we were in for a tough match. The play was fast, and our athletes were excited to play against such an experienced team. Unfortunately, NS could not bring home the win for the week, but are looking ahead to next week's match at home against Channelview!

 

Varsity Begins Team Tennis Season

The Varsity Mustangs had an extremely busy week to kick off the 2017 Team Tennis season! Due to storm delays, the first District match was rescheduled, so our Varsity Tennis Team played their first 3 District matches in one week (Sept. 11-15). The first was an 11-7 win at CE King, followed the next day by a devastating loss at home to Sterling. The team finished the week with a tough match against Atascocita HS, also a loss.

 

Reminder to players and parents:

All athletes must complete the Pre-Participation physical and online forms prior to beginning play/practice. On the "News" page is a link to instructions for those Electronic Participation Forms!

 

 

 

Previous Season---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Roldan Travels to Regionals

Valentina Roldan played her final high school match at the Regional Tournament in Deer Park on April 18. The weather caused a nearly 5 hour delay, but play began in the afternoon and Roldan faced a tough competitor from Clear Lake HS in the first round. The match went to a third set, but sadly Vale did not pull out the win in the tie-breaking set. We are proud to have watched Valentina play a great season this year, and throughout her time at NS.

 

District 21-6A Tough for the Mustangs

The Varsity District Tennis Tournament took place on April 6-7 at Kingwood HS, and NS had a tough two days against the District's finest. Senior Valentina Roldan once again became a Regional Qualifier, with her 2nd place finish in District 21-6A. Senior Javier Flores's win against a tough Sterling competitor put him in a position to play for a spot in the Regional tournament. Unfortunately he could not quite make it past Kingwood's #2 Boys Singles player, but he finished with an impressive 3rd place in the District.

 

Our JV and Freshman teams headed to Atascocita HS and Summer Creek HS for their District 21-6A Tennis Tournament on April 12, after a one-day weather delay. All our rookies played well against the experienced teams in the district, with several reaching the Quarterfinal round. As they finish their first season of tennis, all are excited to work hard during off-season and summer in preparation for next year's Team Tennis season!

 

Congratulations and thank you to our Mustang Tennis players! It's been a great spring! And best wishes for all our graduating seniors!

 

Varsity Travels to LaPorte

On March 3, LaPorte HS hosted a huge varsity tournament - sites were spread out from Strawberry Park in Pasadena to the Deer Park and Baytown high schools. There were competitors from many area school districts, and it proved a tough day for the Mustangs. Senior Captain Valentina Roldan made it to the semi-finals, but could not quite get the win that would have taken her to the finals. This was our Varsity team's last invitational tournament of the spring season. Time to regroup and prepare for the District 21-6A tournament on April 6-7, at Kingwood HS.

 

JV, Fish Travel to New Caney

Both sub-varsity teams traveled to the New Caney Invitational Tennis Tournaments on February 15th and 16th. The freshman Girls Singles division was strong, but Casandra Leal was able to come away with a 4th place win. The same was true for the JV tournament, where Enyssa Alvarado also had a 4th place showing. Both teams gained a lot of experience and are excited to prepare for their next tournaments - at home and at GCCISD!

 

Pasadena Hosts Tough Competitors

The Varsity Mustangs faced some of the area's elite teams on Friday, February 10, but still came home with hard-fought wins. Valentina Roldan played to a 3rd-set tiebreaker in the Finals of the A Girls Singles bracket, bringing home a second place medal. Great job Mustangs!

 

                        

 

Mustangs Continue Their Winning Ways

The Varsity team traveled to MacArthur High School on Friday, February 3, to compete against 17 Houston-area schools. Once again senior captains and number one seeds Valentina Roldan and Javier Flores were the champions of their respective divisions. Congratulations to Vale and Javi! The team looks forward to February 10, when they'll travel to Pasadena for their next tournament.

 

GPISD Hosts Varsity Invitational

The 3rd Annual GPISD Varsity Invitational Tennis Tournament took place on Friday, January 27. Players from 14 area schools participated, and hundreds of individual and doubles matches were completed that day. North Shore's own Valentina Roldan and Javier Flores were the Singles Champions in their divisions, and several others placed highly in theirs. The Girls Doubles team of Ivon Lopez and Marbella DelaTorre won 4th place, and Boys Doubles David Euceda and Aaylan Franco won 5th place medals. The Varsity Mustangs are looking forward to Friday, Feb 3, when they'll travel to MacArthur HS for more wins!

 

Rookies Enjoy First Tournament Experience

The New Caney Beginners' Tournament (on November 29) was a great experience for all the NS "rookie" Mustangs. This tournament is open each year to ONLY players who have first picked up a racquet this semester. The Mustangs entered 4 Girls Doubles teams, 3 Girls Singles players, 1 Boys Doubles team, and 1 Mixed Doubles team, with players from grades 9-11. We had great performances by all, and the following athletes brought home the medals: Hailey Vasquez - 4th place GS, Joselyn Alaniz/Selina Galvan - 1st place GD Consol, and George Mejia/Casandra Leal - 2nd place MXD. Great job Mustangs!

 

 

Rain Delay Doesn't Hurt the Mustangs

After rescheduling their match due to rain, Summer Creek headed back to NS for their final match of Team Tennis season. The Mustangs finished strong, with a win over the Bulldogs 15-4. Thanks to all of the supporters who came out to watch our Varsity Mustangs over the course of this season! We appreciate everyone and can't wait to start off Spring Tennis in January!

 

NS Travels to GCM

The Varsity Mustangs expected a tough battle in Baytown, as they visited the Patriots for their first-ever district match-up. Memorial brought their best from the start, winning 7 of the 8 doubles matches. For the first time, Captain Valentina Roldan played with a new Girls Doubles partner, Ahtziri Reyes, and the two brought home the win for the Mustangs. With help from seniors Javier Flores and Dillon Eldridge, NS was able to get 5 wins on the day, finishing with a disappointing 5-14 loss. District play closes at home on October 11 when Summer Creek comes to NSSH. Come support the team at our last home match!

 

Varsity Tennis Rolls Over Channelview

The Channelview Tennis Team came to North Shore on Tuesday to face off against the Mustangs at home. Though both teams have plenty of young, new-to-varsity players, the Mustangs had no problems defeating Channelview. The 19-0 shut-out left the Mustangs feeling confident and ready to prepare for their match at Goose Creek Memorial on October 4.

 

NS Faces Tough Kingwood Team

On a boiling-hot Tuesday the Kingwood Mustangs came to NS for a battle of the Mustangs. It was a difficult match from the beginning, as we faced a rain delay in the middle of several matches, and had to pick back up after drying the tennis courts. Our senior Mixed Doubles team suffered their first loss of the season, as did our top-ranked Girls Singles player, Valentina Roldan. The Mustangs won several hard-fought games throughout the evening, but were unable to take any matches against the experienced Kingwood group.

Our Varsity Mustangs are now looking ahead to our Channelview match on September 27 at home.

 

Mustangs Take on Eagles

On Friday, September 16, NS Varsity Tennis traveled to Atascosita for the first time in a Team Tennis match. The Mustangs started strong with a win by our Mixed Doubles team, a win from #3 Boys Doubles Aaylan Franco and David Euceda, and a 6-0, 6-0 victory from top-ranked Girls Singles' Valentina Roldan. However, the team could not sustain the streak, and even our later wins in Singles (from David Euceda and America Rodriguez) could not keep the Eagles from victory. NS went home 5-14, with plans to prepare for Tuesday, September 20 when Kingwood HS comes to NS for another first-time match-up.

 

NS Topples C.E. King

At our first home match in the 2016 Team Tennis season, the Mustangs faced off against new District opponent C.E. King. The team was immediately off to a strong start, winning 6 of the first 7 Doubles matches. NS went on to win 10 of the 12 Singles matches, with a final team score of 16-3. Congratulations Mustangs! Next up - the team faces a tough match-up in their first-time meeting with the Atascosita Eagles. Come out to Atascosita to cheer on the Mustangs Friday, September 16!

 

Sterling Tough on the Mustangs

On Friday the NS Varsity team traveled to Baytown to face off against the Sterling Rangers, always a tough rival in district competition. Our Mixed Doubles team of Captains Javier Flores and Valentina Roldan got the match off to an exciting start with their match win, but the Mustangs could not sustain that momentum. The team took a tough loss and are looking ahead to the home opener against C.E. King on Tuesday, September 13. Come out and support the home team!

 

Varsity Mustangs Beat Crosby

On Tuesday, September 6, the NS Varsity team traveled to Crosby High School for an early-season non-district match-up. The Mustangs dominated the match winning 15 of the 17 singles and doubles match-ups. Congratulations to all players, and thanks to our parents and supporters who braved the heat to come out and cheer on the team! Next up, the Mustangs take on Sterling High School on Friday, September 9 in Baytown.

 

          

 

Slow Opener for NS Tennis

On August 16, the Mustang Varsity kicked off the Team Tennis season with a match against cross-town rival Galena Park HS. The match was moved from a home opener to an away game due to court renovations at NSSH. It is a rebuilding year for our Mustang Varsity Tennis Team, as we lost 9 of our previous 14 starters (Congratulations graduates!). Unfortunately, the young NS team did not hold up against GP this year, and GP won the year's matchup (13-5) for the first time since this tradition began. The team is looking ahead to Crosby on September 6.
