 In any sport participating and making it to state is the goal of many athletes and high school sports teams. Making it to state requires hard work throughout the season and dedication to your sport.

On Oct. 10, 11 and 12 two tennis players, junior Michael Maxwell and sophomore Monroe Porter, represented Legend at the State Tournament after competing in Regionals. Both finished in the top five, with Porter placing fourth and Maxwell placing fifth.  As a team, they finished 11th of 20 high schools.

Maxwell’s favorite memory from State was “winning my first match because I was nervous being at state.”

“Overall I felt I played descent. I had a really good season,” Maxwell said.
