Sonora High trio

Friends and teammates (from left) Nathin Dean, Luke Wheeler and Jack Conte pose for a photo at the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section tennis tournament at the Oak Park Tennis Center in Stockton May 16.

You can probably still smell the chlorine from the Sonora High pool when Jack Conte, Nathin Dean and Luke Wheeler arrive at tennis practice in the springtime, the water still in their hair and on their skin. 

The trio train in the pool with the swim team as long as they can without risking lateness for their next practice, then toweling off and rushing to the courts in Columbia.
