Tennis at Waukee High School (WHS) is one of the fastest-growing sports and has experienced a tremendous amount of success since being added in 2010. The players invest time year-round, conditioning and improving upon their individual skill level. The tennis program, as it continues to grow, is building a strong tradition of success that emphasizes competing to the fullest. Both the boys and girls programs have emerged as two of the largest in the state and are fortunate enough to compete on some of the best courts in the area located just west of Waukee Stadium.
The boy’s program has qualified for the state team tournament five times, placing third in 2015, 2018 and 2019. The Warriors won the 2021 state title. They have also qualified individuals for the state tournament each year, including the 2014 individual state champion, freshman Alex Brown. Several doubles teams have qualified as well, highlighted by the 2019 State Doubles State Championship Team, Noah Burmeister and Will Ecklund and 2021 State Doubles State Championship Team of Quinn Monson and Kaden Taylor.
