These Falfurrias High students from a tiny community in southeast Texas were the first Hispanics to win state UIL Championships in their respective events in a sport that had its origins at country clubs.

These kids now in their late 70s without much coaching and great determination spent hours on local courts that were built during the 1930s by the W.P.A. program under the F.D.R. The 1956 Laredo Martin High School Tiger State basketball champions and the 1957 Del Rio San Felipe High School State Champion Golf Team are joined now by the Falfurrias High School State Tennis Champions.owner in White Plains, New York.
