A year ago, Mound Westonka's girls' tennis team had a promising start with two victories in early tournaments. From there, the team's season went 0-for-the-Wright-County-Conference.

"Everybody, including the coaches, looked back at last year and thought, 'Boy, I thought we were better than this,'" White Hawks coach Rob Paul said. "I expect a little bit more."

The White Hawks' roster will be young -- two eighth-graders and a freshman likely will crack the singles lineup -- but the hope is to turn some heads.

"We're not going to rock the conference," Paul said. "But I think we have some good things to come. We have something to prove. We want to play some matches at a higher level and maybe scare some people. We can definitely play more competitively."
