The Lady Wolves were prepping for their MHSAA Tennis State Finals and practicing hitting tennis balls back and forth to their teammates

Then they stopped, they spun around going to the ground and jumped back up. They started singing and dancing to Carly Rae's song "Call Me Maybe."

"They practiced for a couple of weeks," said Clarkston Girls Varsity Tennis Head Coach Becky Freeman. "They all worked together as a team and it was very cute."

As a team, they finished at the state finals in second place, one point away from first place. They also tied with Port Huron Northern with 25 points.

"They all played well," said Freeman. "It was a strong second place finish."
