If these last two years were the last go-around for Amarillo High in the state’s top classification, then it was a nice victory lap.
After getting pulled back up to Class 6A during the 2014 realignment, Amarillo High was back with familiar company in District 2-6A, competing with crosstown rival Tascosa, Lubbock ISD regulars Lubbock Coronado and Lubbock Monterey and new addition Wolfforth Frenship. But Amarillo High was still right at home.

Asked that day about his confidence, he meekly admitted he was suffering.

LONDON — Marcus Willis originally was scheduled to spend Monday teaching tennis to a group of 5-to-10-year-old kids, among others, at Warwick Boat Club in central England.
