The LHS tennis team’s motto is “To God be the glory!”. This motto is based on Psalm 86:12, which says, “I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.” The greatest gift that we can give God is to express our love and gratitude to Him. We will use the platform of tennis at LHS to learn about God, recognize Him in our lives, and give glory to His name. The values and lessons learned through competing on the LHS tennis team will equip you to give glory to God as you live a life of Christian service.
In sight of the gospel of Jesus Christ, our coaching staff is devoted to creating the best possible environment for our tennis players to succeed. This environment is rooted in the understanding that each person is created as a son and daughter of God that is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139: 14). This is met by having a clear purpose, developing deep trust, ensuring high standards, maintaining consistent accountability, and sharing tools that empower our athletes to succeed on and off the tennis court.
