Tennis recap from Coach Dufresne on their matches from last Monday and Tuesday: Whirlwind of two days for the tennis team. JV in Polson. Varsity in Dillon. Here are the vital stats: 510+ miles on the bus A 7:00am and a 6:15am departure A 12 hour day, followed by a 14 hour day JV - more wins than losses Varsity boys and girls defeated Dillon and Park 48 student athletes got to play at least one match Interaction with student-athletes from six different Montana schools It was a glorious two days. It was also a long two days. Slicing through the Big Hole Valley on the bus on night two, tired, listening to the excited buzz of the team, it hit me how important extracurricular activities are for our kids. It’s so much more than winning and losing, even though our society loves to put its focus there. Sports are important to their well-being and their sense of belonging. Sports are important for students to learn how to take risks and deal with adversity, and how to work toward a goal. They also teach, unequivocally, when done correctly, that the whole is always better than the sum of its parts. I am so darn proud of the 48 student athletes on this team for how they treat each other, and also for how they treat the athletes, parents, coaches and fans from the other schools. I am beyond excited for the culture they are building for the future of this program. I am also keenly aware of the opportunity I have to shape the lives of these young men and women, and the opportunity I have to allow them to shape mine. Apologies for getting philosophical, perhaps it’s the English major in me, perhaps it was back to back early mornings and late nights. More likely, it’s just that I wish the best for this great group of kids, from the most decorated athlete to the kid taking a risk in joining a team in a sport they have never played.

All HHS Seniors are required to complete and present a Capstone Project that is based on their personal growth over the last four years. Their topics focused on current interests and passions, personal growth, and future growth and were something that the students want to continue exploring and growing in after they complete high school. We had some ambitious projects from our seniors this year and have created a page detailing many of their projects. You can view photos and info on those projects here: https://www.hsd3.org/o/hhs/page/senior-capstone-projects

Update from Coach Dufresne on last week's varsity tennis matches against Corvallis: Thanks to mother nature, it was a wild day of tennis against Corvallis. We began warming up outdoors until just before the matches were set to begin when mother nature decided to rain on our parade for the third straight match this year. Thanks to the generosity of the Canyons Athletic Club, we moved the matches indoors and began play at 2:00. We continued to play until after 9:00, when the last match finally came off the courts. With only two courts, and a small viewing area with 60+ people watching, the players got to experience a divisional or state-like atmosphere. Adding to the pressure, scores began with a score of 2-2, and we played no-ads in an effort to speed up the matches. It was a great experience for the team, and they rose to the occasion. The girls team won a hard fought 4-3 victory, while the boys cruised to a 7-0 sweep. Both JV doubles teams (boys and girls) that played also got victories. Thank you Corvallis for sticking around until every one of our players got a match in. Thank you to the players who stuck around to root on that final match. And again, a huge thank you to Jimmy Pinjuv and the Canyons Athletic Club for making the day possible. We’ve had three matches this year, all of them shortened or canceled because of rain. Yet the team’s positive spirit remains undeterred. We’re hoping for better luck today as we take on Loyola in Missoula. The team is itching to play.

Update from Coach Dufresne about last week's JV matches in Darby: The first JV match of the year is always one of my favorites; you have a number of players walking on the court for their first match. It’s a combination of nerves, excitement, and the unknown. It’s always a great day. What made this first JV match even better was that a number of varsity players spent the last day of their spring break in Darby supporting the team. Sports are often measured in wins and losses, and by that metric we had a good day, winning over 70% of our matches. I like to measure the first JV match (well, any match really) in the courage to take risks, the determination to keep battling, the joy to be had, and the camaraderie to be shared. By those metrics, the day was 100% a success. I hope the players had as good a day as I did. I hope they fall in love with this sport. I hope they learn life lessons through playing this silly game. And I hope it becomes a lifelong joy for them. Can’t wait to see them on the courts again on May 15th in Polson.
