After hosting their first five home matches far from campus, the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors boys tennis team will be back on school grounds Tuesday, Oct. 8, as construction of new courts at Edmonds-Woodway High School has been completed.
Four new tennis courts will be in use when the Warriors welcome the Mount Vernon Bulldogs for a Wesco League non-conference match on Tuesday. The contest will be the first for the Warriors on campus this year as the team has had to use courts at the site of old Woodway High School for their home matches while construction of the new courts was underway.
The new courts are part of a $7.79 million athletic facilities project on the campus of the high school that began last May. The project also includes a new baseball/football field, batting cages, javelin runway and a storage building.
While the tennis courts will be in use beginning this week, the other elements of the project are still in their construction phase.
The Warriors’ boys tennis have three home matches remaining in the 2019 schedule; in addition to hosting Mount Vernon on Tuesday, E-W are slated to welcome the Mountlake Terrace Hawks on Monday, Oct. 14, and the Cascade Bruins on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
