Round Rock I.S.D. Athletic Department will conduct a Summer Weight & Speed Camp (SWSC) for its high school and junior high athletes.
The instruction given will be generalized and not sport specific. We will be focusing on every sport’s basic functions such as sprinting, lateral movements, strength training, endurance, and jumping.
On April 30th, 2013 Miguel Alda captured the 5A Boys Singles State Championship. Held at the University of Texas Pennick-Allison Tennis Courts, the Westwood Warrior was faced with a very tough draw. Miguel had Tito Morerias, the defending state champion first round. Miguel got down early and even had two match points against him, but stepped up when it mattered the most winning 1-6, 6-4, 7-6(1). His next match was against Belton’s Jacob Daughtry. A tough, rain delayed match, Alda pulled it out 6-4, 7-5 to set up the final against A&M Consolidated’s Frankie Colunga.

Please congratulate all of your tennis players. From the Varsity, JV and Freshman teams, it was a SWEEP of the District 16-5A Championships with Westwood taking every 1st place and every 2nd place across the board. Every player that competed won a medal with our only losses coming to other Westwood Teams. The Warriors showed true dominance the past three days and have set numerous district and school records along the way.
For the Varsity, the top 2 in each division move on to Regionals (next Tues-Wed) to try and qualify for State. With Westwood taking all 10 spots, we earned 2013 District 16-5A Boy's Team Champion and 2013 District 16-5A Girl's Team Champion along with all of our individual awards. Thank you for all of your help with our student athletes missing classes and supporting them along the way. Please visit the tennis webpage for more details.
