The lone Durango High School tennis team members remaining, Hannah Davies and Cassie Cathcart at No. 1 doubles, saw
their regional run come to an end Friday at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction.
Despite limiting unforced errors, Davies and Cathcart fell
6-1, 6-1 to their counterparts from Fruita Monument.
Fruita was just too much of an opponent for us," coach Dave Weisfeldt said. They seemed to have our number this
Contrary to the outcome, Weisfeldt said the match was perhaps the best Davies and Cathcart had played all year, mostly
because of the few errors. The pair from Fruita Monument just played the type of game that's tough to beat.
There wasn't any double faults. We were making the right decisions on the court, it was just a matter of execution,"
Weisfeldt said. When we made errors, it was by a matter of inches."
The rest of the squad stuck around an extra day to cheer on what was left of their state hopefuls. Anticipating next
year's drop to Class 4A, the Demons then went to Mesa State College to watch what was left of the 4A regionals. It's
apparently never too early to start scouting for next year, and judging by player reaction, never too early to start
planning for next year.
They were still pretty pumped at the end of the season. They're already talking about tennis next year, which is
what we need to get the program going," Weisfeldt said.
