  • Lady Panthers show improvement in offseason for new head coach

    Juan Fernandez will be pulling double-duty this year as the head coach of both the boys and the girls tennis teams. This will be his first year coaching the girls, but he has had previous experience helping former head coach Larry Morgan with the team.
