The Sandpoint tennis program has been producing quality athletes for continuous seasons due to their dedication out of season and their arduous work.

Sandpoint’s tennis team prepares for their spring season each year, by traveling down to Peak Fitness in Coeur d’ Alene every Saturday.

Once pre-season begins, they start by working with their coach Kent Anderson and the tennis trainer who works at Peak Fitness. By the time the season rolls around, the team hopes to already be taking steps toward achieving their goals for the upcoming season.

“The main purpose I have for the off season practices is to keep up on my skills so I am prepared for the upcoming season,” said junior Hadley Goodvin, “my goal is to make it to state again, and with the extra practices in the off season I am confident I will be ready for the season to come,”.

Even though the drive down to Peak Fitness may seem like an inconvenience to most, the Sandpoint tennis team sees it as an opportunity to get closer as a team and gain valuable experience for the season to come.

“It can be an inconvenience to have to make that drive every weekend, however we normally carpool which makes it better. Although, it’s worth the drive because it helps us get back on track for practices to come, as well as helping us stay in shape,” said senior captain Allura Livingston.

The team is really taking advantage of  Peak’s Facilities in their off season, continually practicing their skills and working with multiple coaches. The Sandpoint tennis team will continue with this routine until early March when they can get back outside on the courts at Travers Park.
