It is said that tradition never graduates, but good players do. But at Lexington they seem to be able to find good players in tennis to keep the winning tradition going. Despite having one senior on the team in Maya Ahmed, Lady Lex has still come out of the blocks at 7-3 to start the girls tennis season after Thursday's 5-0 win over Wooster in Ohio Cardinal Conference play.

In addition to Ahmed, veteran coach Ron Schaub's team is comprised of freshman Sylvia Goldsmith, Hayliegh Tucker and Katie Volz. Sophomores Madi Mueller and Kirsten Geyer along with junior Jordyn Traxler. Those seven players will try to keep Lady Lex's streak of 11 straight final four appearances going. Overall, the girls tennis team has won five Ohio Tennis Coaches Association state titles.

Says senior Maya Ahmed, "It's good to know that we have a tradition behind us, that's a great motivator and the girls are aware of that and so everybody been playing tennis for a long time and they are just really motivated to battle and keep up their record." Lady Lex will take the court again on Tuesday at Brookside Park taking on Ashland at 4 pm in OCC play.
