Mark Orozco has gained the new head boys tennis coach position. He has been the girls’ assistant tennis coach for five years. He has had 14 girls advance to state over the past five years along with one city title in 2015, and a second place at regionals in 2015 as well. He has been playing tennis for over 15 years and still plays tennis for the USTA tennis program.

He expects around 20 to 25 boys to come out for the team this year.

“I hope we are able to establish a foundation and start a new beginning to a better program. I want to put the boys in a position to be successful,” said Orozco.

When asked about the work ethic he plans to bring to the program he said, “I plan to rely on hard work and dedication from the players. The amount of time that they are willing to spend on the court will determine their success.”

Amanda Torbett will begin her second season as the assistant coach.

“I am very glad to have Amanda Torbett as the assistant boys coach. She is a very positive person as coaching staff is concerned,” said Orozco.

Torbett is excited as well for Orozco to be joining the program.

“Coach Orozco is dedicated to developing the program and the players. He’s knowledgeable, kind, caring, and I’m confident this will be a positive tennis season,” said Torbett.

The first varsity tennis meet will be on March 29 at Kossover Tennis Center. The JV team will play March 30 at Seaman.

“Class 5A boys tennis is very competitive, but overall I think we can hold our own,” said Orozco.
