The summer tennis season got its start last weekend in Mason as the Mason Tennis Association hosted the Summer Swing Tournament. This is the first of several “Swing” tournaments in the hill country. Fredericksburg, San Saba, and Kerrville will also host similar tournaments. The draws were a little smaller this year because it was so early in the summer, but some real good tennis was played by many of the area players.

Mason took eleven players to the state tournament last Tuesday to compete in the UIL State Championships. We knew going into the tournament that weather was going to be a factor and we knew that we had a very young bunch of kids with little experience at the state meet.

What a fun and amazing golf season we enjoyed this year. Arriving in Austin last week, we were not a hundred percent sure what to expect but we knew we had our work cut out for us. Tuesday we played a practice round in high cold winds. It looked like rain but not a drop.

It was common knowledge across the region that Mason had an armload of seniors last year and that they were going to experience a rebuilding year. Well, many regional coaches may have concluded that the rebuilding is the wrong tense…rebuilt might be better. With only three returning players that had ever played at a regional tournament, one would assume Mason might struggle.
