Day 3: Sportsmanship Sunday + Updates
It's three days into the Texas Slam 2023. Matches are heating up and so are the temperatures. With weather expected to be over 100 degrees, it's more important than ever to hydrate, use sun protection, and stay in the shade when possible - even for your earlier matches.
