This is the image for the news article titled Edcouch-Elsa wins the District 32-5A team title During his tenure with the Edcouch-Elsa tennis team, head coach Julio Salinas has produced plenty of individual district champions.

But in six years as the head man, Salinas has never had a team win the district title.

Until now!


Edcouch-Elsa won the District 32-5A team title after defeating Donna High last week and Salinas said he is extremely proud of his squad finally getting over the hump.

“We have always been so close to winning the team title,” said Salinas. Over the past four years, we have come in second place and were right there in the thick of things. But in the end, we were beaten out by someone else.”

“This year, the kids had it in their mindset that nothing or no one was going to get in their way of winning the title. The kids worked real hard and did the things to achieve their goal.”

Salinas said that the big reason the team won the title this year was their experience level.

“The biggest thing that helped us was the fact that we had a senior team this year,” said Salinas. “The mentality was that this is a senior laden team and they didn’t want to go out without bringing home the title.”
