DYNASTY BUILDING: Memorial wins second 6A Team Tennis State Championship

Mother Nature hasn't been kind in the past week.

A pair of cold fronts that have blown through the state the last week have brought with it blistering winds, diving temperatures and in some cases rain. Those conditions don't bode well for an outdoor sport such as team tennis.

The Memorial Mustangs overcame the first front on Friday when it sat through a pair of weather delays before eventually playing and defeating Seven Lakes 10-5 to punch its 11th-straight ticket to the UIL State Tournament this week in College Station.

With the state semifinals matches set for Wednesday, of course, here came another front. This one postponing the matches to Thursday and forcing whichever teams that would advance to play both rounds of the state tournament on the same day.

Not ideal.

But in the end, Memorial persevered. With a pair of 10-7 victories, the first over Southlake Carroll and the second over Plano West, the Mustangs captured the program's second Class 6A State Championship in the past three seasons. The last time Memorial won a state title before this year was 2017.

With the pair of wins on Thursday, Memorial completes the perfect season going 19-0. The Mustangs will not turn their attention to spring tennis where the program could bring home even more hardware on the individual level.

HOUSTON - Dyllon Peavy credited his night to practicing perfect.

His perfect practice turned into a perfect game right when Westfield needed it as the senior linebacker turned into Jesuit Dallas' biggest nightmare on both sides of the ball on Saturday night inside NRG Stadium.

Peavy racked up 13 tackles, forced a fumble - which was recovered by Westfield - registered an unbelievable one-handed interception in the end zone and rushed in for a touchdown, Kendal Taylor rushed for 204 yards and two scores and Westfield defeated Jesuit Dallas 38-28 in the Class 6A Division II Region II Final.

"Just pride," Peavy said about Westfield being back in the state semis. "Looking out for my brothers, my teammates and my coaches. You know we have our coaches back and they have ours."

Westfield moves on to play Denton Guyer, which handled Tascosa easily, winning 42-7 on Saturday. There have been no details on where that game will be played next week.

This is the first State Semifinals trip for Westfield since 2014.

"We haven't been to the semis since my brother was head coach in '14," Westfield coach Matt Meekins, who was an assistant coach on that staff, said. "It's nice to get back."
