The McMullen County High School Tennis Team ended its regular season at the District Tournament in Nordheim on April 4-5 with Ashley Solis winning first place in girls’ singles and Brandon Patterson and Mamie Shelton winning second place in mixed doubles. All three players advanced to the regional tournament in College Station on April 20-21.

Ashley Solis is a senior at McMullen County High School and has been a member of the Tilden Tennis Team for three years. She has had a near perfect season this year, winning first place in the Goliad Tournament on Feb. 16th, the Dilley Tournament on March 11th, the Norheim Tournament on March 25th and the Runge Tournament on March 30th.

The only match that she has lost was in the first round of the Knippa Tournament, but went on to win her next three matches to bring home the Consolation Medal. At the District Tournament on April 4th and 5th, Ashley drew a bye in the first round then won her next two matches, without losing a game, to earn the district champion title. At the regional tournament, Ashley won her first two matches, advancing to the semifinals where she met up with the two-time State Champion and lost in two sets. Ashley has been a valuable member of the Tilden Tennis Team and will be greatly missed as she moves on to start her college career at Incarnate Word in San Antonio. She is the daughter of Jesse and Norma Solis of Jourdanton.

Brandon Patterson and Mamie Shelton are both juniors at McMullen County High School and have been members of the tennis team since seventh grade. This was their first year to play mixed doubles and they did very well together, winning second place in the district tournament and then going on to the regional tournament where they lost in a tie-breaker in their first round match. Other members of the varsity team who participated in the district tournament are boys’ doubles partners, Thomas Arisola and Jandrew Spence, and boys’ singles player Joseph Stanley.
