Cody Tennis Set for First Tournament of the Season

Written by on August 19, 2019

THE HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS SEASON IS OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY AND WHILE FOOTBALL, VOLLEYBALL, CROSS, COUNTRY AND SWIMMING HAS JUST BEGUN THE CODY TENNIS TEAMS HAVE BEEN IN FULL SWING FOR A WEEK. THE PHILLIES RETURN 6 OF THEIR 8 PLAYERS AND ARE COMING OFF A THIRD PLACE FINISH AT STATE, MEANWHILE THE BOYS BRING EVERYONE BACK BUT ONE. I CAUGHT UP WITH HEAD COACH OF THE TENNIS TEAM, NORM SEDIG AND HE TALKS ABOUT THE EARLY SEASON EXPECTATIONS.

“WE CAN DO A LOT OF EXPERIMENTING. WE CAN LOOK AT DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF DOUBLES. WE PRETTY MUCH WANT TO GET OUR SINGLES SET AND THEN WE DON’T KNOW WHO’S PLAYING WITH WHO. I LET THE KIDS EXPRESS TO ME WHO THEY LIKE TO PLAY WITH BECAUSE I LIKE COMPATIBILITY FIRST IN THE DOUBLES TEAM.”

THE BRONCS & PHILLIES WILL TAKE PART IN THEIR FIRST TOURNAMENT OF THE SEASON TUESDAY AS THEY HOST GREEN RIVER AND ROCK SPRINGS. COACH SEDIG TOUCHES ON WHAT’S MADE THIS PROGRAM SUCCESSFUL OVER THE YEARS.

“WE’RE ALL CLASS 4A SO WE GOT TO KNOCK HEADS WITH THE BIG BOYS AND THE BIG GIRLS, THE GILLETTE’S, SHERIDAN’S, CASPER’S AND THE CHEYENNE’S. SOME OF THEM HAVE INDOOR COURTS AND PRO INSTRUCTORS AND ALL THE KIDS HAVE HERE IS ME. I THINK WE DO REALLY WELL. OUR STRENGTH IS TENNIS PLAYING FAMILIES. IT’S JUST KIND OF A POPULAR SPORT. WE GET SOME OF THE BEST KIDS AND SOME GOOD ATHLETES OUT. THAT’S BEEN A BIG PART OF OUR SUCCESS.”

AND WITH THE SEASON JUST BEGINNING COACH SEDIG SAYS EARLY SEASON CONFIDENCE IS KEY.

“GO OUT AND WIN AS MANY DUEL MEETS AS WE CAN. SUCCESS BREEDS CONFIDENCE AND CONFIDENCE BREEDS SUCCESS. THE MORE SUCCESS WE CAN HAVE THE MORE CONFIDENCE WE’LL BUILD UP WHEN WE GET TO THE REGIONAL AND THE STATE TOURNAMENT.”

THE CODY TENNIS TEAMS HOST THEIR FIRST DUELS OF THE SEASON TUESDAY, TAKING ON GREEN RIVER AT 9AM FOLLOWED BY ROCK SPRINGS AT 2PM. STAY TUNED TO THE BIG HORN RADIO NETWORK FOR RESULTS.
