The Saint Edward's School tennis program begins in the Middle School. However, many students compete in USTA sponsored matches throughout the year prior to competing for Saint Edward's School.
The school fields a competitive team each year, with results ranging from individual success to team success.
Tennis is a spring sport with the season running from early January through late April. The varsity squad competes in the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 1-A, District 8 state series. They are a part of the Treasure Lake Conference.
The boys and girls teams have their matches together. The tennis teams compete in singles and doubles with a match consisting of five singles and two doubles. Home matches are played at Riverside Park Tennis Courts.
The Saint Edward's tennis team has had many successful seasons winning district championships, regional championships, and the 2002 State Doubles Champions. In 2009 the team was runner-up in the Class 1A State Championships. Andrew Butz, class of 2010, was FHSAA Class 1A singles champion and All-Area Boys Tennis Player of the Year.
In 2010 the team had an undefeated regular season, District 11 Championship, Region 6 Championship, and FHSAA Class 1A Finalist.
After advancing to the FHSAA Class 1A Final for the second consecutive year during the 2010 season, the Saint Edward's Boys Tennis team continues to have high hopes for the upcoming seasons. With strong efforts by all the players in the preseason practices, the coaches feel confident about this year's team. We have depth and don't feel there is a weak spot in any of the positions. The team wants to focus on building as a team and getting better so to keep our program in the upper echelon of FHSAA tennis.
In 2016 the boys team were district runner-up and advanced to the first round of regionals.
Our team will have a passion and commitment if we as coaches challenged them and show how much we want them to succeed. We expect every player to work as hard as they can every day to become the best player they can be.
Coach Miller is the head of the tennis program.
