Girls doubles tennis team reaches state for Hendrickson tennis team

PFLUGERVILLE – Hendrickson tennis coach Teri Saunders has a simple – and sweet – reason why the Hawks’ program has quickly emerged as a force in her two seasons at the school.

“It’s all about the donuts,” she said after a recent tennis practice at Hendrickson High School, where she was prepping the girls doubles team of Idara Udiok and Bella Reusch for this week’s UIL state tennis tournament.

Saunders laughed, thinking about some of her tasty lures she uses to attract Hendrickson’s students to the school’s tennis courts. But her methods of growing the program have had serious results; After years of serving as little more than a physical education credit, Hendrickson’s tennis program has fled to make a statewide impact.
