Loyd brothers become a part of Groesbeck's rich tennis history, along with teammates Boecker and Holeyfield

The sting is still there and it may take a little time for their silver medal finish at the Class 4A boys’ state tennis tournament to sink it.

But that’s just how much the competitive spirit thrives in Loyd brothers Jason and Michael, sweeping though both district and regional competition this past season for Groesbeck.

“I think eventually we’ll be able to appreciate it,” said Michael. “Right now, we’re still a little disappointed. Once we let it all settle in, we’ll be able to appreciate it a little bit more.”

Their march to the state championship match is the first time Groesbeck has had a boys’ doubles team make it that far since the spring of 2012, when Tim Brewer and Ethan McWhorter played in the Class 3A state championship match.
