The final numbers are in for the 2013 Mohawk tennis season, with a half dozen new school records set in the process. The Tribe had a bit of a split year under longtime coach Paul Seegraves, with the boys winning the district and making a good run into the state tourney while the girls had an off season and only qualified one for state play.

Katelynn Woodard was the lone Lady Mohawk to qualify for the state tournament at North Little Rock, and she was also named All-District for the second year in a row.

Selected as All-District from the boys team were four time honorees Trevor Grubb and Will Jett, two time selectee Quinton Mauldin and first timers Hunter Holcomb, Jacob Wellman and Teddy Arriola.

Meanwhile, Grubb, Jett and Mauldin were also named All-State for the Tribe, the second time for the outstanding doubles team of Jett and Grubb.

A total of six school records fell to the rackets of the talented trio as well, all previously held by last year's state champion Beau Wicker of PHS.

Mauldin set a new high for winning percentage in career matches at 86.1 percent and for percentage of wins in singles match in a career with 87.9 percent. Meanwhile, Trevor Grubb and Will Jett set the new school mark for most district tournament games won in a career with 210, most state tournament games played in a career with 236 and most state tournament games won in a career with 118. Jett also improved on his own record of most doubles wins in a career, pushing the new standard to 46 games.
