Boys+tennis+team+2021

Boys tennis defeats Firebaugh, 5-4, at their home match, April 6.

[/media-credit] The boys tennis seniors are celebrated by their families and teammates during senior night, April 6.

Boys tennis is coached by Daniel Jessing and Robert Foshee. Jessing has played tennis his whole life and his passion for it has grown throughout the years. He loved to coach kids at his church therefore he decided to continue coaching at Fresno Christian.

The 2020 season concluded with 5 matches but the season was cut short due to COVID-19. Boys tennis is still the reigning Valley Champions from 2019 defeating Caruthers, 5-4.  It came down to an overtime doubles match with Logan Lewis, 20’, and Kyle Clem, 21’. Both coaches were excited to see the seniors play their last season and accomplish their goals.

The global pandemic has not affected the 2021 boys tennis season.Their are many new precautions to make the season applicable. One precaution from COVID-19 is not shaking hands after the match.

There are a total of 4 seniors on the team, Mark Pimentel, Bryce Foshee, Kyle Clem, and Brayden Iest.  Go to Boys tennis celebrates senior night for more information.

Senior Mark Pimentel has been in a tennis family his whole life and indicates his passion for it. “I have played tennis  most of his life, my whole family loves tennis. I feel like it has made me a better person and to not get down on myself so much.”

Foshee has been coaching his son, Bryce Foshee, 21’, since his freshman year.

“Seeing him go from a freshman to now and growing has really amazed me. I’m super proud of him for how far he has come. It’s been hard to separate dad and coach but practice is very enjoyable.”
